Whitesnake star Doug Aldrich has quit the long-running hard rock band, which was huge like John Holmes' trouser snake in the '80s.
The reason he is bailing? Aldrich, who has been a member of Whitesnake for 11 years and who appeared on two albums, wants to break out on his own and focus on his solo career. Fair 'nuff.
Frontman David Coverdale tweeted the confirmation of Aldrich's exit, posting: "It is with a heavy heart we bid adieu to super guitarist Doug Aldrich, who is leaving WS to pursue a solo career. Fare Thee Well, My Brother!"
Best of luck to Aldrich as he pursues the next phase of his career.
