Hookers & Blow at the Whisky (Again): Dizzy Reed of Guns N’ Roses brings his rock & roll bar band to the Whisky for a night of classic Strip debauchery. Dead Fervor, JJ Savage, Left of the Slash, Los Tripsters, and Dead in the Headlights also perform.
The band released their self-titled debut album midway through last year, with guitarist (and Quiet Riot man) Alex Grossi saying in a statement that: “If you had told me almost two decades ago when Dizzy and I first formed Hookers & Blow that we would have evolved into what we are today, I would have said you were higher than we were, but here we are….”
“This record is really special on many levels,” continued Grossi. ”For us - as well as many of our long-time fans and friends. In many ways, it solidifies that we actually exist as a viable entity with an official and accurate documentation of the past 17 years. This isn’t just a collection of recorded covers, it’s a labour of love that we are truly proud of.
“There it is. Take it.” says Dizzy Reed. “We made the rock and you all brought the drinks to a thirsty band. This record is for the joy of rock ‘n’ roll music we all share and for the hope of more rock to come. And more drinks, I’m parched.”
Hear it for yourself on Friday.
Hookers & Blow at the Whisky (Again): The event takes place at 7 p.m. on Friday, March 4 at the Whisky A Go Go.
