Brian Tichy, former drummer with Whitesnake, is set to appear on guitarist Chris Caffrey’s forthcoming solo album.
Tichy left Whitesnake last year, citing that he wanted to spend more time on his new project with singer Sass Jordan, Something Unto Nothing.
Says Caffrey of the announcement: “Brian is currently sending me drum tracks for five songs that I will release on my next solo record in 2015. I won’t be able to finish until after the Trans-Siberian Orchestra tour is finished, but I’m hoping to do some tracking on the days off. Lots of great musicians will be around me too, so perhaps I will steal some of them for appearances on these tunes!”
The new album will be Caffrey’s fifth solo effort. “I still haven’t decided exactly what I want to call the record. I had ideas, but I keep changing my mind as the newer songs develop! The album will most likely have 12 songs and I am considering an instrumental or two as well,” he adds.
Meanwhile, in addition to his work with Caffrey, Tichy has also confirmed that he is a member of Sweet Lynch alongside Michael Sweet of Stryper, George Lynch of Lynch Mob and James Lomenzo, formerly of Megadeth. Lomenzo was also a bandmate of Tichy’s when the two played together as part of Pride & Glory with guitarist and frontman Zakk Wylde in the mid 90s.
