Dizzy Reed Talks RNR Hall of Fame, GNR, Dead Daisies, Ronnie James Dio – Glide Magazine

If you think your life is busy, take a look at Dizzy Reed’s recent agenda: As the main keyboard player in Guns N Roses, he has been touring hard all over the world for the past few years. He just finished up playing with the Dead Daisies on the Uproar Festival tour, with a few stops here and there to write and record some new songs with them. His band Hookers & Blow are playing every Monday night in October at the infamous Whisky A Go Go in Hollywood. He has another side band called The Dick Pistols. And on top of all that, he has some music that he is itching to release as a solo record. And that’s only his public life. When he is not making music, he is a husband and father, loves playing golf and on the day we had our conversation, his apartment was in the middle of a renovation.
