Earlier this week, it was announced that Whitesnake have parted ways with bassist Michael Devin, who joined in 2010, with frontman David Coverdale stating: "We all wish Michael every success in his life & all his endeavours. We sincerely thank him for being part of our journey & for all his exceptional gifts he brought to Whitesnake."

Whitesnake have secured a new bassist, and have issued the following update:

"Well, well, well… Ladies & Gentlemen… Boys & Girls… We are very proud to announce & to introduce you all to our newest Snake… or should I say… SNAKETTE!!! Please give a LOUD Whitesnake Choir welcome to The Irish Tornado!

A whirling dervish of a performer whom we feel will bring a fresh, new, exciting musicality & welcome energy to the band, both in the studio & onstage… here she is… Irish born & bred… the one & only… Tanya O’Callaghan!!!

David Coverdale adds: “For whatever reason, Whitesnake has never featured a female musician in the band before… Bad Boys!!!… But, when we saw Tanya performing with our friend Stephen Adler’s band at the M3 festival in 2019 & we were all blown away… An electrifying performer… When Whitesnake & Michael Devin decided to go their separate ways, Tanya was the first person we reached out to & thankfully she accepted our invitation to become a Snake… We are thrilled & delighted to welcome Tanya O’Callaghan to Whitesnake!! Let the music do the talking!!!"
