“I have a feeling it’s gonna take a little while to get things back to any semblance of what we knew before,” he said. “So what we have to do is think outside the box. I have to get this surgery and get up and running. And what better age for the WHITESNAKE lead singer to go out and retire on — 69. [Laughs]”
He added: “I’ve always written songs that challenge me as a vocalist, and I’m 68 now. So I think 69 would be appropriate for WHITESNAKE‘s lead singer [to retire], wouldn’t you?”
WHITESNAKE‘s latest album, Flesh & Blood, was released on 10 May 2019 through Frontiers Records.
