Tommy Clufetos, last seen drumming for Black Sabbath, will join Aussie supergroup The Dead Daisies on their European tour.

Clufetos was the replacement drummer for Bill Ward in Black Sabbath when Ward and the band failed to reach an agreement for the last world tour. (Rage Against The Machine’s drummer Brad Wilk played on the last Sabbath album ‘13’).

Clufetos was the drummer for Ozzy Osbourne’s solo band. He has also worked on albums for Alice Cooper (Dirty Diamonds), Ted Nugent (Craveman and Love Grenade), Rob Zombie (Educated Horses, Zombie Live, Hellbilly Deluxe 2) and Osbourne (Scream).

The Dead Daisies have just completed work on their second album ‘Revolución’ in Sydney with Jackie Barnes (Jimmy Barnes Band) on drums and with new lead singer John Corabi, formerly of Motley Crue. Corabi was Vince Neil’s replacement in Motley Crue from 1992-1996 and sang lead on the 1994 self-titled Motley Crue album.

The Dead Daisies will tour Europe in May and June with Kiss and also tour with Kiss on their Australian dates.
