THE DEAD DAISIES have spent the last week in Los Angeles intensively rehearsing for their upcoming European tour which will see them perform at the biggest rock festivals in world, as well as a play big run of arena shows with KISS.
The DAISIES were joined in the rehearsal studio by Tommy Clufetos (OZZY OSBOURNE, BLACK SABBATH, ROB ZOMBIE), who will be sitting behind the kit for the tour. Tommy complements an already-super-impressive DAISIES lineup which includes John Corabi (MÖTLEY CRÜE, RATT) on vocals, Richard Fortus on guitar and Dizzy Reed (GUNS N' ROSES) on keyboards, Marco Mendoza (THIN LIZZY, WHITESNAKE) on bass and David Lowy (MINK) on guitar.
While in Los Angeles, THE DEAD DAISIES took time out of their rehearsals to shoot a video for their upcoming single, "Mexico", with the girls at Jumbo's Clown Room, home to L.A.'s rock and roll and pole dancing. The clip, directed by Paul Boyd, who worked with INXS on the "Baby Don't Cry" video, Kylie Minogue on "Confide In Me" and Sting on "Desert Rose", has put THE DEAD DAISIES video together with the help of a crazy clown bartender, some exotic dancers and the police.
THE DEAD DAISIES are a powerful musical collective created by a rotating lineup that features some of the world's best rock musicians. Influenced by '70s and early '80s hard rock, THE DAISIES' sound is soulful and accessible-equal parts THE FACES, BAD COMPANY and FOREIGNER: muscular vocals, bluesy riffs, big choruses, powerful melodies and strong hooks. Whether it was inspired by Elvis or THE BEATLES, LED ZEPPELIN or Jimi Hendrix, it always started with the music, and that's what THE DEAD DAISIES are all about.
