John Corabi joins Dead Daisies for album No.2

Former Motley Crue singer John Corbabi has joined supergroup The Dead Daisies for their second album, Revolucion.

He’ll front the band, which will feature Black Sabbath and Ozzy Osbourne drummer Tommy Clufetos, for their European tour supporting Kiss.

They extended an invitation to him after he appeared with them at a peace concert in Cuba, where writing sessions began. Recording is now underway in Australia, with the release planned for June 1 via INgrooves.

Corabi says: “The Dead Daisies have been an absolute blast for me so far. The guys are all great musicians, and also incredibly easy to work with.”

Keyboardist Dizzy Reed adds: “John loves deep-sea shark fishing. Passionate about it. He’s also a whizz with a motorcycle helmet and baseball bat. We are making a new record together. It’s gonna rock!”

The revolving lineup’s studio outfit is completed by guitarists Richard Fortus and David Lowy, bassist Marco Mendoza and drummer Jackie Barnes. They appear alongside Kiss at 12 European shows and also at this year’s Download festival (opens in new tab) on June 12-14.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
