The Dead Daisies in full bloom

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - WHAT’S ON -

THE Dead Daisies gui­tarist David Lowy says his new band will be an on­go­ing con­cern. Lowy says the Aussie su­per­group, who opened for ZZ Top when they played RSL South­port last month, will have a fu­ture past their round of shows sup­port­ing Aero­smith in Aus­tralia next month. ‘‘The Dead Daisies is def­i­nitely a go­ing con­cern,’’ he says. ‘‘It’s a project of Jon Stevens (pic­tured) and mine. We plan to re­lease a sin­gle be­fore our Aero­smith sup­port dates in late April/early May called Lock’N’Load, which features Slash, and soon af­ter that re­lease our de­but al­bum. Jon and I have al­ready started on new songs. You can look for­ward to more mu­sic and tour­ing in Aus­tralia and overseas. I spend a lot of time out­side of Aus­tralia look­ing af­ter my busi­ness in­ter­ests and I’m look­ing to com­bine that with some in­ter­na­tional tour­ing.’’ The Dead Daisies is Jon Stevens on vo­cals with Char­lie Dray­ton (Divinyls), Richard For­tus (Guns n’ Roses), Jim Hil­bun (The An­gels), Alan Mans­field (Dragon, Robert Palmer) and David Lowy (Red Phoenix, The An­gels, Mink). Slash re­cently put down the gui­tar work for Lock’N’Load in LA.
