In just a few years John Corabi (ex Scream, Motley Crue) recorded 3 studio albums and 1 live album with The Dead Daisies. The band founded by guitarist Dave Lowy has gone through a few personnel changes, and Corabi may not have been the original singer, but to me Dead Daisies is the perfect fit for John, where he belongs! So, with the recent news that Corabi has rejoined the band (for a ‘Best of‘ release and tour to start), I am looking forward to hear what comes. I like Glenn Hughes a lot, but to me Dead Daisies were better with Corabi at the mic. So, pulling out those LPs today, and welp Make Some Noise from 2016 is a favorite, and if you aren’t familiar with this band – this is a great place to start (and maybe the Live album), as it features so many great tunes, and a few choice covers. A lot of fast paced rockers, anthems, and heavy cuts that sound geared for the live show, so no wonder that more than half of this features on the band’s mammoth 2017 live release Live & Louder (released in a box set). Favorites gotta be “Freedom”, “Long Way To Go” (the single), “We All Fall Down”, and the band’s awesome take of The Who’s “Join Together” (complete with harmonica and voice-box). There’s also an excellent take of CCR’s “Fortunate Son”.
Make Some Noise also includes Doug Aldrich on guitar (Dio, Whitesnake), bass player Marco Mendoza (Blue Murder, Thin Lizzy/Black Star Riders, Ted Nugent), and drummer Brian Tichy (Whitesnake, Foreigner, Lynch Mob). Cool album cover art from German designer Sebastian Rohde. 2-LP on red vinyl or single CD (with different cover) Check it out!
