Whitney Sudler-Smith is ready to shred — again.
The Southern Charm gent recently shared with The Daily Dish that he's got something in the works with Johnny Tempesta, who served as the drummer for bands like White Zombie and can currently be seen touring with The Cult. “I’ve been working on a new and exciting music project with Johnny Tempesta, drummer from The Cult and White Zombie, out in L.A.," Whitney told The Daily Dish. "More to come on my return to the music scene."
Whitney also recently gave fans a little peek at his jam sesh with Tempesta on Instagram in a video that shows him rocking out on his guitar in a rehearsal studio.
Whitney is no stranger to the rock star lifestyle. He opened up to Shep Rose, Craig Conover, and Austen Kroll about his musical past playing in bands such as Staplegun during the guys' trip to Nashville earlier this season of Southern Charm (you can hear more behind-the-scenes secrets of that trip in the Southern Charm Season 6 After Show, above). "It was f--king awesome. I was brought in as rhythm guitarist," Whitney said of his time in Staplegun during the episode. "I shredded like a motherf--ker."
He also joked in an interview during the episode that his style wasn't too different from that of one of the biggest pop stars of today. "I'm classically trained. I was in tons of punk or heavy metal bands," Whitney said. "I had hair, looked good. I was like the [Justin] Bieber of my day."
We see it!
Bands may have come and gone, but Whitney never gave up his passion for the guitar. "I play guitar every day," he told The Daily Dish in June 2018. "I'll say it's my hobby now, but I'm addicted to guitar, and I play at least an hour a day."
Rock on, Whitney!
