The Dead Daisies celebrate David Lowy being Born To Fly

The Dead Daisies, back in the UK this December, have released the single Born To Fly, backed with a high-altitude video, celebrating guitarist David Lowy’s love of flying.

“Doug and I got together in New York earlier in the year and worked on a riff that I had written previously,” Lowy said. “Doug had a chorus that just fitted. We messed around with the melody and came up with the name Born To Fly. This is a straight-up rock song. For me, it’s literal. I was born to fly. However, we’re all born to fly in our own way.”

From playing with a little balsa wood glider at the age of five to flying in a BAE Hawk, Lowy was motivated to get his pilot’s licence and to one day own a jet fighter. He spent his holidays learning to fly, and after seeing the Sydney Aerobatic Club, he set his sights on becoming an Australian Aerobatic Champion, achieving that goal in 1998.

David would later acquire and learn to fly Spitfires and Vietnam War-era A37B Dragonfly light attack jets, which would lead to a host of other Warbird aircraft acquisitions. In 1999 he established the Temora Aviation Museum in New South Wales, Australia. David’s passion for flying has stayed with him ever since.

The Dead Daisies are joined by FM and the Graham Bonnet Band for the December UK Tour.
