Hookers & Blow, the project formed by longtime Guns N’ Roses keyboardist Dizzy Reed and Quiet Riot guitarist Alex Grossi, have completed recording the band’s upcoming covers album set for a 2021 release via Golden Robot Records. The band also has announced a string of shows in Texas set to kick off on May 19, 2021, at Come And Take It Live.
“With SO many of these one time cash-grab ‘ALL STAR’ projects that literally release a record that in most cases is recorded remotely and most of the time the “band” never even steps on stage with each other,” Grossi said. “Hookers & Blow are proud to be the real deal. We have been doing this (whatever it is) for almost 20 years and the record speaks for itself.”
In addition to Reed and Grossi, Hookers & Blow’s current lineup includes Johnny Kelly (Danzig, Type O Negative), Mike Duda (W.A.S.P.) and Nadja Reed.
Pre-orders for the new album will be available soon.
