The Dead Daisies features Stevens (Noiseworks) on vocals, Charlie Drayton (Divinyls) on drums, Richard Fortus (Guns N’ Roses) on guitar, Jim Hilbun (The Angels) on bass, Alan Mansfield (Dragon, Robert Palmer) on keyboards and Lowy on guitar.

Lowy has played with Doc Neeson in Red Phoenix and The Angels and Mink.

Last year Lowy began looking for a new project and friend and business partner David Edwards suggested Jon Stevens. “I hadn’t done any music for a couple of years, having been very busy with other business projects, and David Edwards, who used to work with and represent INXS, reintroduced me to Jon and said, “Why don’t you get together and see if there’s any chemistry?,” Lowy said in a statement.

Lowy and Stevens explored musical common ground such as Bad Company and The Faces and flew to Los Angeles to record some tracks at Blind Melon’s old Wishbone Studios in North Hollywood.

“We ended up with, like, 34 song ideas after about half a dozen get togethers, narrowed it down to 11 songs, and they’re the songs we recorded,” said Jon.

The Dead Daisies will tour Australia with ZZ Top in March and then with Aerosmith in April.
