In a recent interview with Rock 100.5 The KATT, Whitesnake guitarist Joel Hoekstra revealed the major difference between Whitesnake and his former band Night Ranger.

Here’s the statement:

Whitesnake is a bigger band than Night Ranger, it’s definitely internationally. Whitesnake does a lot of flying in the US, but the catalog for Whitesnake was probably the big thing, just how many great songs are in the catalog.

The opportunity to work with David Coverdale, [drummer] Tommy Aldridge and [guitarist] Reb Beach, legendary players in the business… Like I said, get out internationally and get showcased more on guitar and history of great players.

And David’s really great about showcasing his players, so, that’s a big factor in it as well.”

He also talked about his other band Trans-Siberian Orchestra, and said:

“Yeah, I’m doing Trans-Siberian Orchestra November-December, and I’ve been touring with Cher as well, like, in all the gaps basically. She’s had me as her guitar player for a couple of years now.”
