Guitarist for the rock-band Whitesnake as well as for Vandenberg, which he founded in 1981. He also co-founded MoonKings by the end of 2013. He toured, to great achievement, with Burning Center and initially rejected the offer to become listed on Whitesnake. He released the tune “LOTS One” for the FC Twente soccer team. He was raised in The Hague, Netherlands. Because Vandenberg wounded his wrist, Steve Vai briefly performed in Whitesnake for him.
