Gig Review: The Dead Daisies / The Amorettes – Manchester Academy 2 (12th April 2018)

So, the first thing I noticed when I walked into the venue was the amount of leather jackets and big hair! When it was time for the 3-piece Scottish band to enter the stage, Manchester Academy 2 was already filling up nicely.

Review: The Dead Daisies – Live & Louder

When was the last time we had a truly great classic live rock album? One that would stand shoulder to shoulder with the likes of Live and Dangerous or If You Want Blood You’ve Got It. Aerosmith’s Rocks Donington 2014 comes close. But other than that, the well is dry. Don’t get me wrong, I … Continue reading Review: The Dead Daisies – Live & Louder
