Few bands can lay claim to the title of a supergroup as richly as The Dead Daisies.

Their current line – up features David Lowy (rhythm guitar, Doc Neeson’s Angels), Marco Mendosa (bass, Thin Lizzy), Brian Tichy (drums, Whitesnake, Billy Idol, Ozzy Osbourne), John Corabi (vocals, Motley Crue, The Scream) and Doug Aldrich (lead guitar, Whitesnake, Dio), with former members such as Richard Fortus (Guns ‘N Roses), Jon Stevens (Noiseworks), Dizzy Reed (Guns ‘N Roses) and John Tempesta (The Cult) having passed through the fold since their inception in 2012.

In those five short years, the band has released three studio albums and most recently the epic live recording ‘Live and Louder’ which Corabi believes is a prime release of a band at the peak of their prowess.

“It’s just a great album from a great bunch of musicians,” he enthused. “I mean, how hard can my job be when I look back and see guys like Aldrich, Lowy, Mendosa and Tichy behind me? (laughs). “We had a lot of fun making this album if you could even call it work. We just went out and had fun and did what we do every night and ‘Live and Louder’ is the result.”

Recorded over a number of shows on the 2016 tour through Europe and the U.K, Corabi says hopefully ‘Live and Louder’ will appease the many fans who have been screaming for a live album.

“Man, fans have been on to us for a long time about putting out something live,” he divulged. “It’s not that we haven’t wanted to but it takes time. We wanted to record a few shows and then they have to be gone through to pick out the best bits and it isn’t just as simple as recording something and putting it out there. There are people I’m sure who would like one concert in one take but for us we wanted this package to portray the best of The Dead Daisies and so we took our time and mixed it right. There’s a DVD there and a whole package kind of deal so it’s not just something you can listen to. You can watch us live and watch some behind the scenes stuff so it really is an insight into the whole process of touring life not just a quick snapshot of one performance.”
