The Dead Daisies – Marco Mendoza – The Gov 3.12.14 © Sue Hedley

The Dead Daisies is a great band with a great lineup.  A great band needs a great bass player to be the glue to hold it all together.  Marco Mendoza is that guy. It’s not just the fact that he has played with so many legendary bands and musicians – Marco is real.  If you didn’t know that before now, you will definitely know it by the end of this chat!

I’m not going to lie, this is a LONG talk. It is 100% unedited.  I was going to split it into two or three episodes but I just couldn’t make myself do it.  It was just so real and inspirational.  Make sure you listen to it all.  Marco is the kind of person and musician you want to be.  He will never be without work because of his character and drive.  Learn this model and follow it 😉

On a side note, Marco spilled the beans on the new and upcoming Dead Daisies album name.  I don’t think anybody else knows either 😉  I’m going to make you listen for it though haha!

Also, if you live in Europe you will regret not seeing him on tour on your town so check out or the poster below for the dates.  Get out there and say hi!
