Hookers & Blow, the now legendary project formed by long time Guns ’n’ Roses keyboardist Dizzy Reed and Quiet Riot guitarist Alex Grossi, are happy to announce a global merchandise and recording deal with the world’s fastest growing independent record label Golden Robot Records for a 2019 release.
In addition to Reed and Grossi, Hookers & Blow’s line up now includes Johnny Kelly (Type O Negative, Danzig), Robbie Crane (Black Star Riders) and Nadja Reed.
“We have been asked for years about putting out an actual recording since we started this thing in 2003,” says Grossi “It never really made sense until now, as we have actually found the perfect record label in Golden Robot Records that actually gets “it” as far as what Hookers & Blow is all about.”
Mark Alexander-Erber, Golden Robot Entertainment Group Founder and President comments “Having worked with Dizzy already on his debut solo album and also working with Alex with his new project, I felt the synergy immediately with H&B, it’s all about great rock n roll and a killer night out, it almost harks back to the energy and times on the sunset strip in the mid 80s. It’s that cool, so how could we not be involved! The best part for me was how much Alex and Dizzy dig this band and how much energy and passion they put into it. I’m very excited for their debut album full of classics, this one is going to be a lot fun and a real pleasure to be involved with.”
For the musical side of things, the band has tapped producer/engineer Alistair James who recently worked with Joe Perry and Johnny Depp on the newest Hollywood Vampires album.
Over the course of the past 15 years Hookers & Blow’s members have included Todd Kerns (Slash), Chip Z’nuff (Enuff Z’ Nuff), Mike Dupke (WASP), Scott Griffin (LA Guns) and Don Jamieson of VH1’s “That Metal Show” among others.
