“Playing with The Dead Daisies has been a sweet ride. Performing with some of the best in the music industry, and on the same stages with some of the great bands in the world – Aerosmith, ZZ Top and KISS, has left a lasting impression on me. As a band we are excited to be on the Rockstar Uproar Festival in August/September and can’t wait to give the U.S. a taste of The Dead Daisies” – David Lowy
