Adrian Vandenberg has never really been away, but the band that carries his proud name has returned, after an absence that lasted for more than three decades Vandenberg is very much alive again in a young, fresh and all-revised 2020 version.
Adrian Vandenberg can already look back on a rich career. He played in Whitesnake for over 13 years, having been part of this seminal band’s most legendary line-up. He was the driving force behind Manic Eden and more recently, Vandenberg’s Moonkings, but equally proud he looks back on Vandenberg, the Dutch band that put him on the map, internationally: “So many people still come up to me and speak about those glory days and the albums I’ve made with that band.”
All these compliments have inspired Adrian to bring Vandenberg back to life, albeit in an all new line-up. Together with renowned producer Bob Marlette (Alice Cooper, Black Sabbath), he is currently putting the finishing touches to a new album that will be in stores, later this year.
A first taste of what is to come can be heard on the brand new version of the classic hit “Burning Heart”, sung by none other than Ronnie Romero, who first came to prominence when Ritchie Blackmore recruited him for a Rainbow tour in 2016. Listen to “Burning Heart” here:
