Rolling Stone magazine about the Daisies’ trip to Cuba

Rolling Stone has given The Dead Daisies props for their journey to Cuba last year. The magazine published a look back on the international bands that had visited the country in the past – a remarkable feat especially for groups with members from the US. 

All Daisies members appreciate the acknowledgement and still look back proudly on the trip that included two sold out shows, visiting music schools, recording music and taking in the rich local music culture. The band’s last album “Revolución” was in no small part inspired by the week in Cuba. Commented Daisies guitarist and founder David Lowy: „The Cuban people are wonderful and it was a privilege to share the stage with such talented Cuban musicians. Music lives in their hearts and souls. It was an amazing experience, and I can’t wait to go back“.

Now The Rolling Stones will play a free concert in the country’s capital Havana on March 25th. The biggest Cuban newspaper Granma ran several stories here and here about the visit, also acknowledging the Daisies groundbreaking visit. As The Dead Daisies stated before: „It’s only Rock ’n’ Roll – but we all like it. We are so proud to have helped break down these walls and pave the way for future concerts of this caliber.“
