It has been a while since The Dead Daisies stepped on a stage to play a show, and within a few days they will finally be back. The last few days have seen them rehearse in New York City, and today they started to play through the whole set in order, ready to rock their first US gigs in a while. After a Q&A with fans on Facebook, where everyone was relaxed and in good spirits, Glenn and photographer Oliver walked back to the hotel taking pictures en route. After dinner, Doug and Glenn went for a stroll around Manhattan in the rain, umbrellas in hand, stopping to take pictures with the NYPD and grabbing shots in the middle of a busy New York street between breaks in the traffic. As the days start to countdown to that first show in Florida, you can feel the excitement and anticipation in the air.
