Last month, Glenn and Doug Aldrich spoke with Eamon O’Neill of eonmusic talkin' all things "Higher Ground", the new and soon to be released album from The Dead Daisies.
Song two on the album; ‘Like No Other (Bassline)’ is another kick-ass song, and Glenn, you're the Voice of Rock, but is it nice to remind people about what a fantastic bass player you are too?
GH: Thanks! Okay, a true story; we record live, and I like to record live, and there’s always a microphone for me to sing if I’m playing live, and I hadn’t wrote the lyrics yet for ‘Like No Other’, and I wrote the title, but in the chorus I’m singing [sings]; “can you feel my bassline?” and I’m going; “this sounds pretty goddamn good here!”, you know? So I kept singing it, and when I went to hear it in the control room, I’m going; “this is pretty mega, here, so let’s keep it in the song”.
DA: Musically, once Glenn got in the band; that was the one where I was really; this is the music that Glenn’s going to love. I was like, coming up with the grove and trying to arrange it where he had room to sing, and that was something that The Dead Daisies wouldn’t have gone for before, but I knew Glenn would dig it.
GH: Yeah, I thought it was great. It’s a great combination, and Doug and I worked really hard on that song, and it really fell together pretty quickly.
