Darien, NY – The Dead Daisies, the super group consisting of all-star musicians Richard Fortus (Guns n’ Roses)- guitar, Jon Stevens (Inxs)- vocals, David Lowy- guitar, Dizzy Reed (Guns n’ Roses)- Keyboards, Marco Mendoza (Whitesnake, Thin Lizzy)- bass and Brian Tichy (Whitesnake)- drums, opened for the Lynyrd Skynyrd and Bad Company show at Darien Lake PAC last night. The band played a short, but intense 30-minute 6 song set, that included songs from their debut E.P., along with a crowd-pleasing and hard-hitting rendition of the Beatles classic, “Helter Skelter.” The band has a “No-frills classic rock” sound, with a bit of a modern edge.
Over the next few months, the Dead Daisies will be getting a ton of exposure, not only on the Lynyrd Skynyrd/Bad Company tour, but also as the opening band on the KISS/Def Leppard tour, starting on Aug. 2th. So, if you plan on attending any of those shows, get there early. You will not want to miss rock music’s new sensation- The Dead Daisies.
