Topic: The Dead Daisies

'Supergroup' is an a too oft used phrase sometimes, and I'm not sure the Daisies necessarily fulfil the criteria although their line up has some well known names. The musical credentials are certainly good.

Their debut album was a free giveaway with Classic Rock mag and I have to say it is on constant rotation at the moment.

Great vocals, great rhythm section, good songs with some nice changes of pace. Richard Fortus plays a restrained guitar role and it pays dividends I find.

To me, they have a sense of the Crows and LS about them. There is a whisky drenched sound to the music. Jon Stevens singing is excellent.

I shall be looking out for them when they come around. I like what I am hearing.

Re: The Dead Daisies

Watched them support Black Star Riders...thought they were good fun. Need more solid songs though...just seems like a pub jam band to me...
Helps that David Lowy is in the band....a billionaire! They fly to each gig on a private jet piloted by Lowy. A nice little project for him...and he wasn't such a bad guitarist.
Not a bad group....but nothing to blow me away either.


PS...but an absolutely killer rhythm section.

Re: The Dead Daisies

Mike Craggs mentioned this band recently and I agree they're a fine group.  I especially like the song with Slash.

Re: The Dead Daisies

'Lock 'n Load' is a nice tune with a typical Slash magic guitar dust on it, but there are some excellent other songs on the album. I've listened to it a lot and I find the production is very well done.
Dave's live impression was intesting to note. I hope they tighten it up like on the album and sort out the band members so that they can back the record up. I like it but maybe it is destined to be just another 'one off' album.

Re: The Dead Daisies

"Dead Daisies - the album came free on Classic Rock last month, but to my shame only just gave it some serious playing after catching them open for Black Star Riders. Full-on collision between US and Australian rock. Well worth checking out, and catching if you can".

That's what I said back on 10th Dec, in the What's everybody listening to thread. - Still maintain it's a damn good album. Would like to see these guys come back round again, headlining.

Re: The Dead Daisies

Yeah I've seen The Dead Daisies a couple times. They reign from my native land of course.

I saw them once, supporting Aerosmith and once supporting ZZ Top. Got the album free with Classic Rock also. Almost seems a shame to receive it for free, I'd certainly pay for it! They're very much 'on the record' live as well (as in they sound on the record as they do live).

I think a lot of people might consider them sorta average but I quite get into them when I seen them. I hope they'll stick around for some time and make a couple more crackers for us.

Re: The Dead Daisies

Marco Mendoza (from BSR etc) is now back playing bass for them.

Re: The Dead Daisies

I see it was announced last month that with the departure of John Corabi and Marco Mendoza Glenn Hughes has been drafted in to fill both pairs of shoes....

The new lineup – Hughes, former Whitesnake guitarist Doug Aldrich, ex-Journey drummer Deen Castronovo and David Lowy – released their first song together, “Righteous Days,” along with the announcement.
