Super bands come and go, based on the star power within the band.  Along comes the latest such band, The Dead Daisies.  What have these guys got that others didn’t?  well, they all have stars and killer players, but these guys actually bring great material to the table as well.  Live, they pull out all the stops and go full speed from the time the lights come up until the last note reverberates through the bands monitors and the house lights come back up.  The band has thousands of shows under their belts cumulatively.  From front man Jon Stevens (INXS/Noiseworks) to guitarists Richard Fortus (Guns N’ Roses/Psychedelic Furs) and David Lowy (Red Phoenix/Mink) to keyboardist Dizzy Reed (Guns N” Roses/Hookers N’ Blow) and finally the rhythm section of bassist Marco Mendoza (Thin Lizzy/Whitesnake) and drummer Brian Tichy (Billy Idol/Ozzy Osbourne), these guys have the experience needed to pull off gigs opening for the likes of Bad Company, Def Leppard, and KISS.  Watch out for these guys, they know the face they love, and they have the rock prowess and energy to melt it off before you know what hit you!

ToddStar - that's me... just a rocking accountant who had dreams of being a rock star. I get to do the next best thing to rocking the globe - I get to take pictures of the lucky ones that do. I love to shoot all genres of music and different types of performers. If it is related to music, I love to photograph it. I get to shoot and hang with not only some of my friends and idols, but some of the coolest people around today.
