part of the Whitesnake Family. Its an incredible opportunity. I
am excited to bring new sounds and flavors to Whitesnake. I look
forward to expanding on the already great Whitesnake material."
Brian is already immersing himself
in the catalogue of Snake songs in preparation for the bands
upcoming rehearsals for the "Whitesnake Forevermore World Tour
Jon Lord of Deep Purple. "There
is nothing like an overdriven Hammond B3 and his lead style
is incredible. I've never heard anyone play like he did."
Rick Wakeman of Yes: "I love his
ability to play multiple keyboards at once. He had amazing
sounds and put on quite a show."
Keith Emerson of ELP: "He's the
only guy I know that played the Hammond B3 backwards and
stabbed it with knives. He was also one of the guys that
introduced the mini moog synthesizer."
Whitesnake have been advised to keep all sharp cutlery away from
Brian when he's performing.
