Fans of The Dead Daisies were surprised with rumors a few weeks ago that Glenn Hughes would be joining the band, replacing singer John Corabi and bass player Marco Mendoza. The confirmation of the lineup change finally happened this week, and the band is now working on a new album, with a tentative release for early 2020. A taste of what’s to come was recently revealed, with the song “Righteous Days” being offered to the fans on the band’s website.
In the meantime, while we wait for a new album of original songs, the group has released “Locked and Loaded”, a compilation of live and studio takes on classic hard rock songs. From The Beatles‘ “Helter Skelter” to Deep Purple‘s “Highway Star”, with a stopover in The Who‘s “Join Together”, the album is a fun journey through the history of rock and roll, and works as a comprehensive compendium of influences of all members of The Dead Daisies.
Sonic Perspectives collaborator Rodrigo Altaf had the chance to catch up with The Dead Daisies guitar player Doug Aldrich earlier in the year to talk about his other endeavors, and a some days ago they reconnected and covered even more ground, including the dynamic of the band with Glenn, his plans for the remainder of 2019 and what is in the pipeline for The Dead Daisies. As usual listen to their talk below and remember to subscribe to our Podcast in several platforms to listen and be notified about new interviews and contents we publish on a daily basis.
