“Australian/US supergroup The Dead Daisies featuring members from Guns ‘N’ Roses, Thin Lizzy and Noiseworks among others play the Ironworks in Inverness on the 5th December as part of the Black Star Riders tour.
Formed around the nucleus of Australians Jon Stevens (Noiseworks/INXS) and David Lowy (Red Phoenix/The Angels), the powerful musical collective is completed by a line-up that speaks volumes. They include, Charley Drayton (The X-pensive Winos/The Cult), Richard Fortus (Guns ‘N’ Roses/Thin Lizzy), Darryl Jones (The Rolling Stones) and Dizzy Reed (Guns ‘N’ Roses).
The Dead Daisies sound is created around the tracks written by Stevens & Lowy which is based on the music they both love – classic late ‘70s early ‘80s hard rock, in that soulful Bad Company meets Foreigner via The Faces kind of vibe – big choruses, powerful melodies, and strong hooks. Recorded with LA-based engineer, producer and multi-instrumentalist John Fields, The Dead Daises finished recording their debut album in just two intensely creative weeks.” – Inverness Gigs
