Marco Mendoza Releases New Album with Dead Daisies, Announces Solo Tour

The Dead Daisies: Locked and LoadedThe Dead Daisies have released Locked and Loaded, a covers album of their favorite songs and bonafide classics. The band, anchored by bass great Marco Mendoza, put their own stamp on the music by The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Who, Creedence Clearwater Revival, and more.

Three of the songs are taken from live concerts, including this version of Deep Purple’s “Highway Star”:
