Max Reebo’s Pick of the Week: “Last Time I Saw the Sun”

July 1, 2019 at 6:36 am | Posted in Max Reebo Pick of the Week, Music, Regular Feature | Leave a comment

Max Reebo’s pick this week is “The Last Time I Saw the Sun” by The Dead Daisies.

The Dead Daisies is one of the bands I just stumbled across. It started with one song and it lead to another and another and next thing you know, I was plowing through their discography to see what all they had. Now they’re not a band who I can jam out to their entire album, but they have a lot of good songs scattered amongst their albums, like this one.

“Last Time I Saw The Sun” is from their third studio album Make Some Noise which came out in 2016. They’ve got three other albums you can check out with some good songs on all of them. The band’s lineup has changed over the years, but for Make Some Noise they had John Corabi on vocals, Doug Aldrich and David Lowy on guitar, Marco Mendoza on bass, and Brian Tichy on drums.
