The Dead Daisies stream Last Time I Saw The Sun

The Dead Daisies

The Dead Daisies – featuring former members of Motley Crue and Whitesnake – have streamed their track Last Time I Saw The Sun.

It’s taken from Make Some Noise, their third album, which is released on August 5 via SPV.

Vocalist John Corabi says of the track, which was inspired by drummer Brian Tichy: “Lyrically it’s about being on the road – all this stuff of checking in and out of hotels, and stages, and people you meet.”

Ex Motley Crue man Corabi is joined in the band by Whitesnake and Dio ex Doug Aldrich, Thin Lizzy man Marco Mendoza and ex Ozzy and Whitesnake member Tichy, as well as bassist David Lowy.

The frontman recently told Classic Rock: “The thing about this band is that because we’re based all over the world, guys drop in and out for certain tours. Doug’s already right at home, and he had a ton of great ideas for this record – as did everybody.

“A lot of the guys on that list just filled in for a show or two when somebody had prior commitments. This is the easiest-going band I’ve ever been in. But now there’s a core band, and if schedules permit this is the line-up we’ll be taking forward.”

The Dead Daisies are currently touring Europe, with North American dates and further European appearances to follow.
