The Dead Daisies

Rock’n’Roll is a trip, not a destination… we all know how the saying goes! To that end, 2020 will see The Dead Daisies continue their journey with new music, performances and adventures.

The Dead Daisies have gone from strength to strength since the release of their self-titled album in 2013. They have released four studio, one live and one covers album to a growing army of fans worldwide and are praised by the global media in an era where Rock has been declared dead time and time again.

The band’s DNA includes an amazing collective of players that includes John Corabi, Marco Mendoza, Richard Fortus, Dizzy Reed, Frank Ferrer, Darryl Jones, Tommy Clufetos, Charley Drayton and Jon Stevens amongst others. They’ve also shared the stage with some of the biggest names in Rock including Kiss, Guns N’ Roses, Scorpions, Aerosmith, Bad Company, Whitesnake, ZZ Top and the Hollywood Vampires.

The Daisies have started their next chapter welcoming new member Glenn Hughes. Also known as “The Voice Of Rock“, Glenn has taken over lead vocals and bass guitar, joining guitarists Doug Aldrich, David Lowy and drummer Deen Castronovo.

The chemistry is undeniable with a new album recorded by Producer Ben Grosse at La Fabrique Studio in the South of France with the band boasting: “The best is yet to come”.

The Dead Daisies

With the addition of Glenn Hughes, The Daisies supercharge their front line through his rock solid bass grooves and unmatched vocal intensity. As all fans know, the man is a true original, inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame, with a rich history of music that features heavy weights like Deep Purple and Black Country Communion as well as a successful solo career. One might say: “They don’t build rockers like him anymore”.

Followers can expect more High-Voltage Rock songs, indomitable grooves and spell-binding lyrics, all the ingredients that have made this music so timeless, out-living trends of the modern day. The sound of The Dead Daisies is firmly rooted in the Hard Rock way of life we all love but as a living, breathing rock band, they are constantly evolving & bringing new dynamics to a classic style.

The band have conducted multiple headline tours throughout Europe, Japan, South & North America and conquered some of the worlds most prestigious festivals such as Download, Wacken, Graspop, Sweden Rock as well as Woodstock Poland, where they played the notable Concert for Peace with a 60-piece orchestra in front of over 300,000 people in 2017. Significantly, they were the first American Rock band welcomed back to Cuba after the embargo was lifted in 2015.

It’s the uplifting experience of a real live show that makes Rock music so encompassing and where The Dead Daisies always deliver. Their concerts are known for creating a special connection between the players and their audience, giving life to each other, singing, screaming and relishing in the moment!!!

The Dead Daisies are pushing forward, giving energy and taking chances to ensure that every person who experiences them has no doubt that Rock is Indeed Alive & Well and here to stay. So turn it up, come to a show, enjoy the ride & ROCK with us.

Vocalist/bass guitarist/songwriter Glenn Hughes is a true original. No other rock musician has carved such a distinctive style blending the finest elements of hard rock, soul and funk. That astonishing voice is Hughes’ calling card. He’s known as a singer’s singer. Stevie Wonder once called Hughes his favorite white singer.

Hughes, a native of Cannock, England, absorbed all kinds of influences, including early British hard rock, the Beatles and, most importantly, American soul and R&B. The sleek Motown sound from Detroit and the gritty Stax/Volt sound from Memphis left their mark on him.

The first important band Hughes was a member of that achieved notable success was Trapeze. The band’s early ’70s albums included Medusa, Trapeze and You Are The Music… We’re Just The Band.

In 1973, Hughes joined Deep Purple. The trailblazing hard-rock legends had just weathered the departure of vocalist Ian Gillan and bass guitarist Roger Glover, but guitarist Ritchie Blackmore, keyboardist Jon Lord and drummer Ian Paice continued with the addition of Hughes and David Coverdale.

Since 1992, Hughes has toured extensively in Europe, Japan and South America in support of solo albums, but more recently has been involved with award winning supergroups’, Black Country Communion with guitar star Joe Bonamassa, keyboard player Derek Sherinian (Dream Theater) and drummer Jason Bonham, son of the late Led Zeppelin legend John Bonham and California Breed, who also featured both Hughes and drummer Jason Bonham.

In between his hectic schedule, Hughes also found time to publish a book, “Glenn Hughes : The Autobiography – From Deep Purple To Black Country Communion“, the Number 1 best seller is available in both hard and soft cover editions from all good retailers.

So make no mistake. The Voice of Rock never left the building.

GLENN HUGHES announces DOUG ALDRICH as guitarist for European tour

Following on from his recent announcement of a 2015 Solo Tour in Europe, GLENN HUGHES is excited to announce that DOUG ALDRICH (Revolution Saints & formerly Whitesnake, Dio) will join his Solo band as guitar player. Alongside Aldrich will be powerhouse Swedish drummer, PONTUS ENGBORG, with Hughes on bass & vocals, completing the Trio.

Commenting on the addition of DOUG ALDRICH to his Solo band, Hughes says:

Glenn HughesMy friendship with Doug started when he was playing with my dear friend, Ronnie Dio. Ronnie would always introduce me to his bandmates who were always family.

So, on a fateful night in May 2010, I was playing at a festival in Bologna, Italy. I asked Doug if he would like to join me to play a couple of Deep Purple songs. We went into my dressing room and went over the arrangements of the songs, and we were good to go. I introduced Doug to the stage, and we performed for the audience. It felt natural & full of energy. Doug is a world class guitar player and bona fide Rock Star.

I was impressed with Doug’s demeanor, both on and off the stage, hard-working, kind and loving, all the qualities that one needs to fulfill a fruitful life.

Our friendship continued as Doug joined Whitesnake, and I was happy knowing that my brother David Coverdale, would nurture Doug’s talent, and give him the love to share with ROCK fans globally.

Hughes continues:

On the fifth anniversary of Ronnie’s passing, I connected with Doug again, and we chose to talk and remember how much we loved and missed him. We both asked what we were doing musically, and then out of the blue I asked him if he would like to come and play with me and do some Shows.

The answer was… I’m in!

We are both very excited to bring the love to ROCK fans, and carry the message that ROCK is alive. For me, it’s time to get back onstage, it’s where I belong… see you soon!

Excited at joining Hughes’ Solo band for the 2015 Tour, guitarist DOUG ALDRICH added:

Glenn and I have been friends for years. I met him through the Dio camp as we were both very close to Ronnie.

Doug Aldrich

We had played live together several times, first in Bologna, Italy for the Ultimate Guitar Festival, and most recently at the Jim Marshall 50 Year Memorial Concert at Wembley Arena in London.

I’ve had a huge respect for what he has accomplished, but to play with him was astonishingly cool.

So cut to a few days ago.

I was remembering Ronnie James Dio on the anniversary of his passing and posted on my Facebook Page about that night 5 years earlier in Bologna. I remember Glenn dedicating “Long Live Rock ‘n’ Roll“, to Ronnie. It was right out of the blue and little did we know RJD would pass the next day.

Glenn and I were both pallbearers at the funeral.

Glenn heard about the Facebook post and gave me a call, also asking if I was up for a little jamming… I said YES for sure I was!!

We both agreed, it was long overdue to do a run of dates together.

Glenn had dates and I signed on!

I’m very excited about it all. If you hear of Glenn in town… GO see him cause I’ll be there too!!

Swedish drummer PONTUS ENGBORG has been in the Glenn Hughes band since 2010.

In 2010 Engborg was asked to join the Glenn Hughes band. On July 17th 2010 Engborg and Hughes met in Serbia. Without no rehearsal Pontus was able to perform with Glenn Hughes and his GH band for 21,000 people. Engborg has been a part of the Glenn Hughes band ever since.

When Pontus isn’t touring the world with Glenn Hughes, he frequently tours/works with artists such as:

Bill Champlin (Formally of the band Chicago)
Eric Martin (Mr Big)
Joe Lynn Turner (ex Deep Purple/Rainbow)
Graham Bonnet (ex Rainbow)
Steve Augeri (ex Journey)
Marco Mendoza (ex Whitesnake)
Bobby Kimball (ex Toto)
Robin Beck

Engborg has also toured with the late Fergie Fredriksen (ex Toto) and Jimi Jamison (Survivor) and many more.

Pontus Engborg is endorsed by Paiste Cymbals, Evans Drumheads and Promark Drumsticks.

Engborg on touring again with GLENN HUGHES adds:
