Hookers & Blow Featuring Members Of Quiet Riot And Guns N' Roses Release Eddie Money Cover Of "Shakin'"

Hookers & Blow, the now legendary project formed by longtime Guns N’ Roses
keyboardist Dizzy Reed and Quiet Riot guitarist Alex Grossi, have been
hitting the studio to record a covers album set for a 2020 release via
Golden Robot Records.

Today sees the first single hit our ears and that is an inspired cover of
the Eddie Money classic Shakin’. Hookers & Blow deliver the track with all
the soul, honesty and depth of the original but in their own fashion,
dripping with immaculate musicianship and flawless vocals. Shakin’ finally
sees the undeniable talent of Hookers & Blow shine through on their debut

“We are all huge Eddie Money fans, and actually got to know him personally
over the years. He was an amazing talent and an equally amazing and
hysterically funny person who touched so many people. He always got a kick
out of this project whenever I mentioned it to him, so this being the first
release off the record seemed like a perfect tribute to him. Rest In Peace
Eddie” – Alex Grossi/Hookers & Blow

Grossi continues ‘’We have actually found the perfect record label in
Golden Robot Records – They actually get “IT” as far as what Hookers & Blow
is all about, so we are tracking an album of some of our favourite tunes,
with some of our favourite people and just having FUN with it. We can’t wait
to share some of what we have planned for this thing.” The band has tapped
producer Alistair James who recently worked with Joe Perry, Alice Cooper and
Johnny Depp on the newest Hollywood Vampires album.

Look forward to more new music in the near future and Hookers & Blow may
just be the current cure you are looking for. Shakin’ is available on all
digital platforms now.
