INTERVIEW AND PHOTOS BY MARKO SYRJALA

The Dead Daisies are an Australian-American rock band formed by guitarist David Lowy in 2012 in Sydney, Australia. Although the band is still relatively new, they already toured the world with names such as ZZ Top, Aerosmith, KISS and Whitesnake with whom they arrived for the first time in Finland with this November. The band’s name might not be very familiar to many, but it surely helps that Lowy has put together a band of prominent and well-known musicians.

There have been a large number of fine musicians who have played in the band Alice Cooper. Names such as Reb Beach, Eric Singer, Kip Winger, Al Pitrelli, and Jimmy Degrasso, are all well-known world-class artists who have either created the early career of the Alice Cooper band or have played there at some point. Today, the Alice Cooper band consists of a drummer Glen Sobel, bassist Chuck Garric, and a trio of guitarists – Ryan Roxie, Tommy Henriksen, and Nita Strauss (she joined Alice’s band a year ago).
