Whitesnake frontman David Coverdale is revealing details about his 2017 surgery, where he had both his knees replaced with titanium last year.
"With all the years of bending and rotating on stage, there's wear and tear. I've got degenerative arthritis in my knees. It got to the point it was hurting so much it was pulling me out of the zone I needed to be in for my performance. So last year I had the right knee, then the left knee, replaced with titanium. My recovery was so successful the doctor shared details of it at a conference and I'm preparing for world tours for 2019 and 2020.
To hear 12,000 people singing 'Is This Love?' and 'Here I Go Again' is transcendental," he adds. "I am blessed."
...well, at least now there's SOMETHING metal about him. I kinda hate Whitesnake.
