Guns N’ Roses member Dizzy Reed drops lead single from debut solo album

Dizzy Reed

 

Guns N’ Roses keyboardist, Dizzy Reed, has dropped the lead single, This Don’t Look Like Vegas, from his upcoming 2018 debut solo album, Rock ‘n Roll Ain’t Easy, out on digital, CD and purple vinyl through Golden Robot Records on 16 February.

Written by Dizzy Reed, Ricky Warwick (Thin Lizzy, The Almighty, Black Star Riders) and Del James, This Don’t Look Like Vegas, features Warwick and Mayuko Okai on guitar, with fellow Gunner, Richard Fortus (Guns N’ Roses, Psychelic Furs, Thin Lizzy), bringing the guitar solo.  Mike Dupke’s (W.A.S.P.) on drums, Mike Duda (W.A.S.P.) on bass, Reed on lead vocals, piano, shaker and tambourine, with backing vocals from Nadja Reed, Chela Johnson and Del James.

While initially undercut by prominent keys, This Don’t Look Like Vegas quickly settles into a swaggering slice of classic rock, led by big riffs and Reed’s own touchstone lyrics of dark shades, flexibly applicable gambling metaphors, shotgun weddings, fire, fury, brimstone etc. It’s all scenes of beautifully filthy bar band blues, the stuff of Sunset Strip nights, endless whiskey shots and a hedonistic heaven where, as Reed eloquently puts it, ‘nothing is certain.’
– Rolling Stone Australia

Rock ‘n Roll Ain’t Easy is 12 tracks of rock (or 13, if you download the digital version, which comes with a bonus track!) with Reed uniting with fellow members of Guns N’ Roses, along with some other greats, including players from W.A.S.P., Quiet Riot, Psychedelic Furs, Thin Lizzy, No Doubt, The Replacements, Queens of the Stone Age, and more.
