  1. Eddie – is Reb Beach now slated to be the lead guitarist for Whitesnake, or will Winger be his main gig once again?

  2. You can check out Doug diong classic rock in Las Vegas at Raiding the Rock Vault with Howard Leese -Guitar (Heart, Bad Company), Robin McAuley -Lead Vocals (MSG, Survivor), John Payne -Lead Vocals, Bass (Asia), Paul Shortino -Lead Vocals (Rough Cutt, Quiet Riot), Jay Schellen -Drums (Hurricane, Asia), Andrew Freeman -Lead Vocals (Offpsring), and Michael T. Ross -Keyboards (Lita Ford).
    It’s an awesome show in a small venue and priced right!

      My wife and I got to see that show last year. Wasn’t sure what to expect with so many recognizable names thrown together, but they did a great job telling a story and playing some great music at the same time. The night we were there Lou Gramm was a special guest and made an appearance for one of the first times after his illness. It was pretty cool to see him and to see the respect the other rockers onstage held for him.

  3. Bill D. says:

    Damn! DA was the perfect foil for DC….wishing the best for both camps! Was fortunate to see the WS band three times with Doug. Hopefully Doug gets the opportunity for some original music in that type of band setting…would love to see him with Mr. Tichy again…

  4. Bring back John Sykes they have unfinished business

  5. larry t says:

    I know they are not metal but they did have a huge influence on the music is the MISFITS. I would be cool if TMS could get ONLY & DANZIG on the show. What happened to SUICIDAL TENDENCIES?

    • Danzig was on already. But imho it was disappointing. Guys didn’t seem to know much about Danzig’s career.

  6. That is surprising. I bet it was over the size of Doug’s paycheck. Thinking about Ronnie, he said some really profound things in his songs, and he sort of did this Biblical thing with his words where he would say something very far reaching and deep, even complex, but compose as to be very simple and direct. “Look beyond your own horizons, sail the ship of sighs.” Horizons are your fields of freedom, your power, your property. Ronnie is saying to transcend those, and even transcend your understanding of ‘the other.’ Your perception of another is not to be against the backdrop of your horizons, but rather it should be of the pure individual. The ship of sighs is being present, not this relatedness that is always forward and backward.

  7. Shawn in Nawlins says:

    Eddie- Any chance DC will be pulling in a discovery out of obscurity? My vote is that young Aussie Casey Jones, De La Cruz guitar/founder

  8. Too bad. The last two Whitesnake albums were incredible. Perhaps Mr. Coverdale could bring in Steve vai and John Sykes for an album/tour? But i’m sure there are dozens of talented guitarist that the label have waiting to go. On another note congrats to KOBRA AND THE LOTUS for landing opening slot on the kiss/def leppard tour this summer! They will be the band to watch when the new album comes out.

    • Um well when Gene manages you (or discovered you, I forget), you probably are a good contender for an opening slot in front of KISS lol

  9. Danzig was on before and suicidal is touring with Slayer and Exodus right now

  10. Thanks for the update eddie. Doug is a fantastic muscian. It be nice if they slide Reb to the lead position, but unfortunately he is really not a blues influenced picker with huge virbroto. Nobody to this day could reproduce fully John Sykes virbroto and picking. John isn’t doing anything, bring him back, he is one of the best guitarist I have ever heard, Aldrich was exceptional guitarist too, but John had this magic in his playing and is a exceptional song writer and arranger.

    Eddie’s in Detroit rock city! damn eddie you travel more than I do! do you ever get a vacation? well, if you love what you do & I know you do, it’s a “permanent vacation”! party on Ed!

  12. Doug is a MONSTER player. Has one of the greatest guitar tones in the world. Best of luck to him.

  13. Speaking of Winger, their new album is really good.

  14. I love Steve Vai, but I can’t see him returning to Whitesnake.

  15. Chris J Saari says:

    DC should bring back the Old Whitesnake [I think only two members are dead] and do a Real Blues Tour!
    I saw them with Vai and Vandenburg in the early 90’s and it was a Great show; but I really missed the Older Blues Songs! I wish I could see Sykes; he’s a great song writer and player!
    I don’t know if DC would have had the same success with out Sykes; I mean just listen to Blue Murder’s First CD and you can see how much Sykes influenced DC’s Blues to Rock metamorphous!
    Plus Tommy Aldridge is a Killer on Drums!! and he has been since his old Black Oak Arkansas Days!

  16. I have always loved the tone Aldrich has best of luck to him!
