THE DEAD DAISIES Pay Tribute To Their Influences On 'Locked And Loaded: The Covers Album'

THE DEAD DAISIES pride themselves on being an ass-kicking rock band very much of today who love to celebrate the history of amazing music. In short, the band are fans of rock and always will be.

Every one of the bands albums to date has had at least one cover song on it drawn from great songs from all eras, from the early blues greats to the classic rockers and heavy-hitters of later times. So many terrific players, so many immortal words, so many larger-than-life riffs

"This is a 'tip of the hat' to our heroes, bands that influenced us when we use to buy their records as teenagers," says John Corabi. "Now we've put them all on one album and it seriously rocks!! You may think of us as 'rock stars,' but at the end of the day we're just huge music fans."

Adds Doug Aldrich: "This collection of covers comes together from a long list of some of our favourite tunes, some bona-fide classics — or simply songs that made us all smile, sweat and scream, band and audience alike.

"These are done DAISIES style, with big guitars, big vocals and always a bit of dirt under our collective fingernails, just the way we like it which is why we always love to mix up the setlist and throw them into our live shows.

"Playing these songs live is a total adrenaline rush for all of us. Our audiences go nuts with our Daisified versions of these songs that come from an incredible time in music. It's our way of paying homage to the 'greats' of rock."
