Hello wolfy, old house
Congrats on your birthday!
Long time no hear. Hope that you and your family are doing well and that you've banned Corona from your home, be it the beer or the virus.
Today the German Government decided that no major events and concerts will take place until at least August 31st 2020.
For me that means one ticket for the Purps ...whooosh! one ticket for the Daisies ...whooosh!
I have expected this decision and still...
At least bands and tour promoters can plan ahead now and find new schedules for a hopefully better 2021.
Stay home, stay safe everyone!
We want that virus dead and gone
While some people sit at home moping, others take their car out, delighting the neighborhood with some solid sounds.
Have some fun with Deeno's car karaoke!
David Coverdale, whose second name I bet must be "His Naughtiness" is home waiting for his operation, hoovering the house, and feeling so bored that he is twittering as if he's being paid for it - such as
As expected, "On the Blue Cruise 2020" will have to be postponed.Quote
Our team has been working diligently in handling this situation and we are pleased to announce that we have come to an unprecedented agreement with NCL to postpone On the Blue Cruise and move to another date, which will be determined in the weeks to come.
As you may have read on various sources, David Coverdale has had to cancel all his and Whitesnake's activities for the rest of the year 2020 due to an impending surgery.
So let's wish him the best of health and a speedy recovery!
At home with the Coverdales.

Q. And now Glenn Hughes has taken over bass and vocal duties. Him joining the band had to be mind-blowing.
A. “Dude, I’ve always known him as a bass player, but to be in a room with that man, and the tone he gets … the bass tone and the way he attacks a bass is like a drummer’s paradise, bro. He locks it. It’s like a glove. I’ve only played with three or four bassists that do that. One is Geezer Butler of course. Jack is another, and now I can add Glenn to the list. He’s just a monster. He’s got his own pocket, and you can just kind of fit right in with it. And the voice, I mean, come on. It’s like, ‘How do you do that at 67 years old? How are you nailing it like this?’ He’s a freak of nature!”
Q. Was there an adjustment period with Glenn’s arrival?
A. “The adjustment wasn’t as hard as we thought it might be, because Glenn’s an icon. I definitely wanted to step up my game. It wasn’t even really an audition when he showed up. We played four or five songs, and it was like, ‘Yep. Him joining is a no-brainer.’ I love and I miss (original bassist) Marco (Mendoza) and (original vocalist) John (Corabi) a lot. I love those guys to death, but Glenn definitely has fit his way in really well. It feels great and sounds great, and I’m excited to go on the road.”

For those who like to hear Glenn talking, here is the phone interview.
It's the time of the year to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a safe and healthy 2020!
