The Dead Daisies

The Dead Daisies have announced their return to Woodstock Poland featuring in a headline performance at a special “Concert for Freedom” with the Gorzow Philharmonic Orchestra on Aug. 3.

Founder and president of Woodstock Poland Jurek Owsiak said, “Woodstock 1969 became an incredible spark which inspired all freedom thinkers of the world to face their biggest challenge yet—striving to achieve freedom, independence, truth and try to build a true fraternity of people across the globe. For people in Poland, it became an inspiration to take a very important step on the road to regaining freedom and true independence. It was thanks to music, thanks to artists, who gave voice to our dreams which, 25 years ago, resulted in the creation of Polish solidarity and our Polish independence. We are so proud to say that it has been 23 years since we began to send the message of peace. It is especially important in such turbulent times as now. (more…)

The Dead Daisies have announced 12 North American shows in August as part of their Live & Louder World Tour, in support of their upcoming live album, Live and Louder, scheduled for a May 19 release on Spitfire Music/SPV/eOne. Heralded “The Dirty Dozen Tour,” the trek is set to kick off Aug. 10 in Chicago, Illinois, and will wrap Aug. 27 Las Vegas, Nevada.

“The Dirty Dozen Tour” is inspired by the classic 1960s movie of the same name. It will be the band’s first North American headline tour.

“We’re all very excited for our very first North American headline run,” said vocalist John Corabi. “We’re kicking it all off on Aug. 10 in Chicago and ending it in ‘Sin City’ Las Vegas! You guys have been amazing with all of your support and requests for shows here, so we’re giving it to you ‘LIVE AND LOUDER’ and ‘down and dirty’ on ‘The Dirty Dozen Tour 2017!'” See ya on the road kids!” (more…)

The Dead Daisies

“Live & Louder,” The Dead Daisies’ new live outing, is set for release on May 19 on Spitfire Music/SPV.

From the moment The Dead Daisies dropped their first single “Long Way to Go” ahead of their European festival summer in June, the hits just kept on coming. The second single, “Join Together,” ramped up the release of the third studio album, Make Some Noise. The band also toured the United States with KISS, ending the run with a sold-out headline show at Los Angeles’ Whisky A Go-Go.

The next single, “Song and a Prayer,” was released with an accompanying short film and rang in the final touring phase of the year, which saw the band go to Japan for the first time, where it immediately became media and fan darlings, and went down a storm at the world-famous Loud Park festival. A string of dates in Korea for the USO followed and, as the year’s grand finale, a massive U.K. and European co-headline tour that played 30-plus shows to sold-out venues. (more…)

Survivor: An interview with Bruce Kulick

Ace Frehley was first and Tommy Thayer wears the makeup now, but no KISS guitarist has had a longer tenure than Bruce Kulick. His years (1984 to 1996) yielded several hit albums and one of the best records of the band’s 35-year career, 1992’s Revenge. Kulick went his own way when the original lineup reunited in 1996, forming Union with former Mötley Crüe singer John Corabi and releasing two criminally overlooked albums (Union, 1998, and The Blue Room, 2000). Solo releases followed in 2001 (Audio Dog) and 2003 (Transformer), and since 2001, Kulick has been a member of Grand Funk Railroad. On Feb. 2, Bruce unleashes his third solo album, BK3. With guest appearances by Gene Simmons, Gene’s son Nick, Corabi, KISS drummer Eric Singer, Toto guitarist Steve Lukather, Edguy singer Tobias Sammet and The Knack frontman Doug Fieger, along with Kulick’s always solid playing, it’s an album KISS fans won’t want to miss. Bruce recently talked to Live Metal’s Greg Maki about BK3 and more. (more…)

MC942Review by Greg Maki

One thing you can never accuse Mötley Crüe of is being predictable. In 1989, Dr. Feelgood became the band’s first No. 1 album and went on to sell more than 6 million copies. Two years later, the Decade of Decadence compilation charted at No. 2, spawned the Mötley classic “Primal Scream” and eventually went double platinum.

So what they do next? Find a new singer, of course. The parties disagree on how it happened, but in February 1992, Vince Neil was out. Enter John Corabi, formerly of The Scream. They could not have found someone more unlike Neil—Corabi with his dark look and deep, bluesy, versatile voice, and Vince with his sunny blonde looks, hard-partying image and limited vocal range.
