The Dead Daisies in Havana

The band the Dead Daisies is expecting to rock and roll Havana with two concerts this week featuring music from the 1970’s and 1980’s.

The statements were made by the multi-national rock band at a news conference in the Cuban capital. The Dead Daisies, which emerged in 2012 and is made up of musicians who are active or were part of important rock bands, such as The Rolling Stones, Guns and Roses, Whitesnake or Mink, is visiting the island since Sunday at the invitation of the Cuban Music Institute and the Cuban Chapter of the World Network in Defense of Humanity.

With the title Rock for Peace, the concerts will be held at the Maxim Rock Theater on Wednesday night and at the Salón Rosado de la Tropical on Saturday. The multi-national rock group will be joined by the Cuban band Anima Mundi and Cuban singer David Blanco. While on the island, the rock band will exchange views with musicians and students from the specialty and is expected to give a master lecture at the Maxim Rock.

Made up of Marcos Mendoza, Richard Fortus and Dizzy Reed (Guns and Roses), David Lowy (Mink), Briam Tichy (Ozzy Osbourne), Darryll Jones and Bernard Fowler (The Rolling Stones) and John Corabi (Motley Crue), the Dead Daisies was set up following a meeting between singer-songwriter Jon Stevens and guitarist David Lowy, and has held concerts in the United States, Australia, United Kingdom, New Zealand and Israel, and other countries.

Singles such as Face I Love, Angel in Your Eyes and Washington have been received both audience’s and critic’s acclaim.
