GLENN HUGHES Joins THE DEAD DAISIES
THE DEAD DAISIES — the hard rock “collective” founded by Australian musician and businessman David Lowy — has announced that Glenn Hughes (DEEP PURPLE, BLACK COUNTRY COMMUNION) has joined the group as their new bassist and vocalist, replacing John Corabi (MÖTLEY CRÜE) and Marco Mendoza (THIN LIZZY). “Righteous Days”, the group’s first single featuring Hughes, can be streamed AT THIS LOCATION.
A statement on the group’s web site elaborated on the lineup change. “THE DEAD DAISIES are a musical collective whose members come together through a common love for great rock music,” the post reads. “It’s a living, breathing, musical organism with the credo, ‘Rock is indeed alive & well!’ From the band’s inception, the idea was for members to bring their own ideas to the table but also have the flexibility to come and go when working on their other projects. Both John and Marco are, and always will be, a part of THE DEAD DAISIES musical family, but at this point in time they have decided to do some work on their own solo projects.”
Known as the “voice of rock,” the 68-year-old Hughes is best known for fronting the Mk. III and Mk. IV lineups of DEEP PURPLE in the mid-1970s and for singing on BLACK SABBATH’s 1986 album “Seventh Star”. He was replaced by Ray Gillen after only six live performances with the band.
