Coverdale had announced to fans that his recurring health issues, which turned into upper respiratory infections, have made him unable to sing and perform, which is why they had to cancel all of their performances. One of his old-time friends, Glenn Hughes, recently mentioned that they had a chance to catch up with Coverdale and gave details about his recovery process.
Glenn Hughes revealed that he recently spoke to David Coverdale. He added that because they are close friends, Coverdale always calls on his birthdays. Hughes mentioned that the vocalist has been resting but has started singing again before the live shows coming up in November.
Hughes’s words about David Coverdale’s current condition:
“I spoke to him on my birthday last week. He always calls me on my birthday, so I talked to him, and he’s resting. I think he’s singing now at home and getting ready for the following shows in November, and he’s ready to go, so I’m happy for him. We’re very close friends.”
