Story, Photos, & Interview by Scotty J
The Dead Daisies have only 1 speed and that would be full throttle. Since the release of their most recent album, "Burn It Down", they've toured relentlessly across North America. Now, with their tour just wrapping up in Los Angeles, this group of well seasoned Rockers will get a brief break before The KISS Kruise VIII.
Although they may shun the Super Group label, how can a band comprised of Doug Aldrich, Marco Mendoza, John Corabi, and Deen Castronovo be thought of as anything else? The Dead Daisies epitomize the best sounds of Rock & Roll and is the sum of their parts. I was fortunate enough to catch up with Doug and Marco not too long ago (see interview below) and get the full back story on the bands formation. It would have been nice to get Corabi's take too, as he is a hometown Philly guy. But, I did at least get to have some fun off the record conversation backstage. For anyone that likes Guns N' Roses, Thin Lizzy, Whitesnake, and Mötley Crüe, there's NO WAY The Dead Daisies shouldn't be on your playlist.
