Guitarist Doug Aldrich has left Whitesnake and has issued the following statement:
"Thanks to my big bro David (Coverdale) for such a killer run together!! So many songs, tours, projects, always inspiring and pushing each other!
Mostly I was to thank the loyal WS Choir and fans around the world. You have been so amazing to me and it's been an honor to play for you with WS.
I love you guys and I'll see you all again. Thank you so very much for your unending support.
Also, not sure how or where the info started about a solo career but this is not true or correct information.
I have no plans at this time to go solo. I'm just not in the Whitesnake/David Coverdale band anymore.
I'll let you guys know what I'm doing ASAP but for now please know I very much appreciate your support and will hopefully do a statement with my brutal brother DC shortly.
Big love for the Aldrich clan."
