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.
