We Can’t Wait To Watch Her Perform

Whitesnake has just announced a new addition to their lineup – bassist Tanya O’Callaghan. She joined the band following the exit of longtime bassist Michael Devin over the weekend.

Whitesnake made the announcement on their official website.

“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!!!” the band said in a statement. “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!!!”

“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 Steven Adler’s band at the M3 festival in 2019 & we were all blown away… An electrifying performer,” frontman David Coverdale added. “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!!!”

Whitesnake members are busy preparing for next year’s farewell tour, which kicks off in May.
