For anyone who was around in the early eighties, this particular music industry update might make you do a double take. In fact, it was certainly a sight for sore eyes when I came across the press info on a Whitford/St. Holmes reunion, and I wasn’t even around during their first run as a duo.
A quick rundown now, folks. Whitford/St. Holmes is a duo comprised of none other than Brad Whitford (Aerosmith guitarist) and Derek St. Holmes (Ted Nugent vocalist/guitarist), the duo released an album in 1981 during a break from their respective touring commitments. Songs like “Whiskey Woman” and “Sharpshooter” made their way into the homes of many, allowing Whitford/St. Holmes–the only album by the duo until this point–to hold rapport in the music industry.
Whitford/St. Holmes is back (in hats) with an official release of their album Reunion, and they are touring far and wide with–who else?–Whitesnake to bring their most recent work to your listening ears! Derek St. Holmes sat down to answer a few questions for us, and we were really impressed with the format so we left it in its most raw form for you.
