The Dead Daisies & The Quireboys live at Rock City Review.

The Dead Daisies & The Quireboys live at Rock City Review. Tonight’s venue is the legendry Rock City, arguably the best live music venue in the UK. We are here to see the latest version of The Dead Daisies with The Quireboys.

First up is The Quireboys, I first went to see this band many years ago at a club opposite Nottingham train station called Mardi Gras, we were all a lot younger back then. Tonight Spike is on top form just like the old days, this is old school Rock n Roll, it’s completely unapologetic and it’s brilliant. How many times have you seen bands these days when the strongest thing they drink is water. Who can remember Ozzy knocking back bottles of Jack?. It’s fair to say Spike was on a high and not just on life, knocking back pint after pint, this made for a truly great gig as he joked about the songs being over 20 or 30 years old. At one point he informed the audience it was Saturday night until someone told someone told him it was Sunday. I don’t know about you but I kinda want Rock stars to act this way. They played a blistering set of now classics that the crowed loved. This was not so much as a support band but more a double bill of great bands. They had to go out with Sex party, Spike said looking at you lot you’ve not been to one for a long time.

Next up it’s The Dead Daisies, I have always said that any band lives or die by the vocals, I have seen The Dead Daisies three times before but never really got it, until Glenn Hughes stepped in to replace John Corabi. Don’t get me wrong John Corabi has got a great voice but it just never seemed natural. The Dead Daisies have had many line-ups over the years but I have to say this is defiantly the best. They played a great set of old classics and some new ones from Holy Ground. Glenn my be getting on in years but he still has a cracking voice, effortlessly reaching those high notes. The highlights included Ozzy’s drummer Tommy Clufetos drum solo and the cover of The Sensational Alex Harvey Band’s Midnight Moses. They ended the encore with Glen’s Deep Purple classic Burn.
