Tommy Clufetos steps away from The Dead Daisies, Brian Tichy returns

The Dead Daisies have welcomed back Brian Tichy to the band, replacing Tommy Clufetos, who has stepped away from the band to pursue his solo projects.

“Well, what a nice way to start off 2022,” Brian Tichy says. “I’m excited to get behind the drum kit and do some powerful, groovy rocking with my good friends Doug Aldrich, Glenn Hughes and David Lowy in The Dead Daisies! Looking forward to seeing you all out on tour this year.”

Brian first joined The Dead Daisies during the US Uproar Tour in 2013 and performed on the Revolución and Make Some Noise albums. He has also played with Whitesnake, Foreigner, and Ozzy Osbourne.

“We are thrilled to have Brian return to the Daisies fold,” David Lowy said. “He is an exceptional drummer, and it’s great to have him taking command of the engine room. Tommy has decided to step away from The Dead Daisies to pursue his own solo projects.

“We’re really looking forward to getting into the studio and hitting those global stages in 2022.”

“A huge thank you to the amazing Tommy Clufetos for rocking out with us,” the band said in their statement. “It was awesome to have him as part of the band in 2021. We wish him well.”
