Earlier in the week The Dead Daisies, the supergroup announced that lead singer John Corabi (Ex-Motley Crue, The Scream) and Marco Mendoza (Thin Lizzy, Whitesnake) would be leaving the band and would be replaced by none other than Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple, Black Sabbath) on vocals and bass. While the circumstances of their departures remain unclear at this time, Corabi seems to be already on the road with the band Lost Angels which consists of John Corabi (Vocals), Eric Dover (Guitars) Troy Patrick Farrell (Drums) and EJ Curse (Bass)
The current line-up for The Dead Daisies is:
Doug Aldrich (Guitars-Whitesnake, Dio), Glenn Hughes (Bass & Vocals-Deep Purple, Black Sabbath), Deen Castronovo (Drums-Journey, Bad English), David Lowy (Bass-Red Phoenix/Mink)
