Hookers & Blow, the now legendary project formed by longtime Guns N’ Roses keyboardist Dizzy Reed and Quiet Riot guitarist Alex Grossi, entered the recording studio in 2019 to record a covers album set for a release via Golden Robot Records later this year.
“We have been asked for years about putting out an actual recording since we started this thing in 2003,” says Alex Grossi. “It never really made sense until now, as 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 have decided to go for it and are currently in the studio 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.
In 2013 Hookers & Blow hosted two back to back highly successful residencies st the world famous Whisky A Go Go in Hollywood and in 2018 celebrated it’s 15th anniversary with two extensive tours headlining their own 25 city Holiday Hangover Tour in January, as well as supporting The Dead Daisies on their first headline trek of North America, which kicked off on August 15th in Cleveland, OH, and wrapped in Hollywood on September 16th with a sold out show at The Roxy Theatre in Hollywood, CA.
Over the past 15 years, Hookers & Blow’s past members have included Todd Kerns (Slash), Chip Z’ Nuff (Enuff Z’ Nuff), Mike Dupke (WASP), Scott Griffin (LA Guns) as well as comedian Don Jamieson of VH1’s “THAT METAL SHOW” among others.
In addition to Reed and Grossi, Hookers & Blow’s current line-up includes Johnny Kelly (Type O Negative, Danzig), Robbie Crane (Black Star Riders) and Nadja Reed.
The band entered the studio in LA and Vegas in 2019 for several sessions to produce their debut album, covering a wide variety of rock songs.
