Video of WHITE SNAKE members Joel Hoekstra and Dino Jelusick performing the band’s classic song “Here we go again” February 12 on board this year rock monsters cruise can be seen below (courtesy Youtube the user WILL TRAVEL FOR THE CONCERTS).
last July, WHITE SNAKE announced that he had enlisted the Croatian singer/multi-instrumentalist Jelusick for his next tour. Jelusick is a member of a multi-platinum sales group TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA and was previously part of DIRTY SHIRLEY (with George Lynch), ANIMAL TRAINING and recorded with many others. dinosaur has been singing, touring and recording since the age of five. Besides being a leader, his main instruments are the keyboards, but he also plays bass, guitar and drums. He finished the music academy and did theater.
Asked in a recent interview with Antihero Magazine what dinosaurthe role of will be on WHITE SNAKEof the last tour, the leader of the group David Coverdale said: “It’s going to be like I have two guitar players.
“I have always seen WHITE SNAKE like an orchestra,” he explained. “I don’t see it as a group-group. I don’t want two guitarists playing the exact same song, or just harmony guitars, I want two opposing guitars… you have the incendiary Joel Hoekstraquite different from the electrifying Reb Beach. And it’s not to overwhelm Michele [Luppi, WHITESNAKE keyboardist]. Micheleis completely secure. I love him and what he brings to WHITE SNAKE.
“In 2019, dinosaur‘s opened for us in Zagreb, and it’s very rare for me, and I was like, ‘Who the fuck is this?’ And I was like, ‘Wow, this kid is awesome.’ And Joel said, ‘Yes, I worked with him in the TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA. He’s a great guy. And I said, ‘This guy is a snake, man.’ And I said, ‘Don’t say anything yet. I will keep my eyes and ears on him.
“So I think it’s going to be fantastic,” Coverdale added. “I’m going to have a keyboard orchestra for a lot of songs on WHITE SNAKE which are great epics, which make them even more musically orchestrated without having an orchestra on stage with us.
“I mean, the guy is awesome, I can’t wait to sing with him. I already have three singers who are good enough to be singers, with Michael Devin and Michele Luppiand Reb Beach; they really are great singers. What’s wrong with having another? And I think he’s a great guy. He has his challenges legally right now, but talent, conviction and courage will always win out. And I can’t wait for us to start rehearsals, really not. It must be exciting for me and add another spice to an already good cocktail.”
last september, dinosaur Recount Monica Moreira of more than words about his involvement with WHITE SNAKE: “Good, David mentioned that he would like to rob me [to] his house and that he would like [for] me and him to write songs for WHITE SNAKE.
“I’ll play keyboards. I’ll do backing vocals. I’ll play guitar on a few songs,” he explained. “And that’s as far as I know.”
He was asked if he was somehow a little sad knowing that it will probably be WHITE SNAKEthe farewell tour, dinosaur said, “Well, no. Every band has an expiration date. WHITE SNAKE It’s been 40, 50 years now. Over 40 years — since 1978 or 1977, when the first album was released. But I’m proud to be the last WHITE SNAKE never a member. When you see the guys who played in this band. You had Jon Lord. You had Don Airey on keyboards. You had Timothy Drury, Michele Luppi and myself. It’s five keyboardists from WHITE SNAKE. There were a few others playing live – yeah, Paul Mirkovich was in 1994, playing that leg. Yeah, there were a few more. But, yeah, it’s definitely a great part of history in the making.”
When Jelusickis added to WHITE SNAKE was first announced, David said in a statement: “I am absolutely delighted to welcome the very talented Dino Jelusick at WHITE SNAKE. We’ve had our eyes and ears on him since we played together in Zagreb two years ago. You’ll love it !”
dinosaur said to have been influenced by WHITE SNAKE and Coverdale from the youngest age.
“I’m beyond honored to be part of one of my favorite bands of all time,” he said. “To receive the phone call from David Coverdale is something every singer and musician of my generation can only dream of; it always seems completely surreal. I can’t wait to hit the road with WHITE SNAKE and, like the great CC told me himself, to give a piece of my identity to the sound of this iconic band.”
Coverdalewho turned 70 last September, recently confirmed that he plans to retire from touring after WHITE SNAKEnext batch of concerts around the world.
Coverdale had both of his knees replaced with titanium in 2017 after suffering from degenerative arthritis. He later explained that he had so much arthritis in his knees that it hampered his ability to perform live.
WHITE SNAKE was on tour in support of his latest album, “Flesh & Blood”which was published in May 2019 via Frontiers Music Srl.
