The Dead Daisies are an Australian-American hard rock band. Formed in Sydney in 2012, the group were initially a duo composed of David Lowy and Jon Stevens, who recorded the band's self-titled debut album in 2013 with session musicians.[1] The first touring lineup of the group, which performed in March 2013, included Guns N' Roses guitarist Richard Fortus, former Angels bassist Jim Hilbun, Cold Chisel drummer Charley Drayton and former Dragon keyboardist Alan Mansfield.[2] Hilbun and Mansfield were replaced in April by Marco Mendoza and Clayton Doley, respectively,[3] and Alex Carapetis took over from Drayton in May.[4] In June, Dizzy Reed replaced Doley on keyboards,[5] and in August Frank Ferrer replaced Carapetis.[6] The following month,Darryl Jones took over from Mendoza, respectively.[7][8]

By October 2013, Drayton had return to The Dead Daisies.[9] In January 2014, Mendoza returned to the band and Jones returned to The Rolling Stones.[10] In February, The Cult's John Tempesta replaced Drayton in the group.[11] He remained until May.[12] The group's lineup remained stable for the rest of the year, until February 2015 when Jones returned to the group alongside new vocalists John Corabi and Bernard Fowler in place of Stevens.[13] Corabi remained for the recording of the second Dead Daisies album, which began in March with Jackie Barnes filling in on drums.[14] When the band returned to touring, Tommy Clufetos of Ozzy Osbourne's band took over the position.[15] In April, it was announced that Corabi had officially replaced Stevens as lead vocalist.[16]

For an Australian tour in October 2015, Fortus was temporarily replaced by Dave Leslie after suffering injuries in a motorcycle accident.[17] By January 2016, Fortus and Reed had left The Dead Daisies permanently to take part in the Guns N' Roses Not in This Lifetime... Tour, with Doug Aldrich (formerly of Dio and Whitesnake) taking over on lead guitar.[18] The group released their third studio album Make Some Noise in 2016 and their first live album Live & Louder in 2017, then former Journey drummer Deen Castronovo joined in November 2017.[19] The band released their fourth studio album Burn It Down in April 2018.[20] In August 2019, former Deep Purple and Black Sabbath bassist and vocalist joined the band, as both Corabi and Mendoza left.[21]
