WHITESNAKE FRONTMAN DAVID COVERDALE SAYS, “ANYTHING WE REGARDED AS NORMAL BEFORE, THAT’S GONE”
Whitensake frontman David Coverdale was a recent guest on Eddie’s Sirius/XM show, Trunk Nation, where he discussed life under the Corona virus.
He told Eddie, (via blabbermouth.net), “I think anything that we regarded as normal before, that’s gone. I don’t think anything is gonna be normal. People are gonna have to get into the frame of mind to be able to go to these public gatherings, to go to an indoor theater, arena, stadium. This has really shaken up the whole thing. God willing, we can have a reset.”
“This is biblical, the stuff you read about in the Bible — the Black Plague of Egypt,” he continued. “This is immense. If anything, we must learn to work together and stop the boundary aspect. Europe has had to use the borders again to keep people out and quarantine the populace. And that’s very necessary. And also staying home is necessary.”
“But it’s gonna be an immense change,” he added. “And I sincerely hope, with my advanced years, that I’m still gonna be able to get out there while I can still do Still Of The Night at the end of hour [and] 45 [minutes].”
Coverdale went on to say that that he was not optimistic about a return of mass gatherings for things such as concerts in 2020.
“This ain’t going away just yet,” he said. “We should get all of these magnificent scientists at Apple — Chinese, Russian, Japanese, African, French, American — get ’em all together and work in one f–king focus: find a vaccine for this thing.”
Last month, Whitesnake announced the cancelation of all of its previously announced touring activities, including this summer’s U.S. trek with Sammy Hagar & The Circle and Night Ranger.
