Whitesnake frontman David Coverdale says in a new interview that he is “healing nice” for his recent bilateral inguinal hernia surgery, which he says wasn’t safe for a man of his age to undergo.
Coverdale said of the surgery, “My performance is an entirely physical, athletic show. I pull my voice up from my whole body, so if part of the body is compromised, it’s really evident. So, we had to cancel the tour [with Sammy Hagar and Night Ranger] before the pandemic closed all the borders and stuff. This was something that happened once I’d gotten home from the Asian tour. But everyone was in lockdown – there was nobody to help.
“But we had the surgery now. It wasn’t safe for me, a man of my age. It wasn’t a life-or-death thing, even though it was career threatening. And thankfully, we seem to be healing nice.”
