Listen to this awesome review and premiere of Empty Heart by Mojo Radio Show.
“The guys have gotten together and said; WE ARE GOING TO BRING BACK ROCK N ROLL – that’s our heart”
The Dead Daisies released their new album Revolución on September 18 which includes the track ‘Empty Heart’. The duet, written by Jimmy Barnes and Tommy Boyce also features Jimmy Barnes along with Daisies’ singer John Corabi on vocals.
Back in March of this year, The Daisies went into 301 studios to lay down tracks for their new album Revolución with bassist Marco Mendoza (Thin Lizzy, Whitesnake), keyboard player Dizzy Reed (Guns N’ Roses), guitarist David Lowy (MINK, Red Phoenix), lead guitarist Richard Fortus (Guns N’ Roses, The Psychedelic Furs), vocalist John Corabi (Mötley Crüe, RATT) with Jackie Barnes on drums.
Cold Chisel were also recording their new album at 301 and in between takes they all hung out together. Jimmy brought in a couple of songs he had written for The Daisies to listen to. They all really liked ‘Empty Heart’, and one thing lead to another. The next thing they were recording a duet… ‘Empty Heart‘ came to life. Featuring two legendary rock singers and soaring vocals, this track falls fully into the classic rock anthem category!
“Jackie Barnes (Jimmy’s Son), played drums for most of the tracks on Revolución so Jimmy was stopping by on occasion to check on our progress. He spoke with us one day, and offered us a couple of tunes he thought we might like. After listening we all agreed on Empty Heart. We all thought it was just a great tune!!! I am honored to say I’ve sung with the man, and beyond his talents as a musician, he’s just a great dude to hang with!!! GOD, WHAT A VOICE!!!!” - John Corabi
