ADRIAN VANDENBERG (VANDENBERG, EX-WHITESNAKE): “When I Thought About Finding An Amazing Singer, The First Name That Popped In My Mind Was RONNIE ROMERO”

Vandenberg Group

Adrian Vandenberg felt that 2020 was the right time to reactivate the Vandenberg moniker. The legendary guitarist didn’t want to go forward on nostalgia this time around. Adrian wanted to kick things up a notch. In order to do that he had to find the right singer. He found him in the form of touring Rainbow vocalist Ronnie Romero. The result of the pairing is their latest album Vandenberg 2020 [read review]. While there are signs of Vandenberg’s past within the music, the end result is more modern, dynamic, and energetic. Metal Express Radio had the chance to speak with Adrian about Vandenberg 2020, how he discovered Romero, the future of Moonkings, and why Kiss wasn’t happy opening for Whitesnake.
