Hookers & Blow
“Hookers & Blow may very well be the best cover band of all time, and certainly what America needs right now” - HUSTLER MAGAZINE - March, 2021
HOOKERS & BLOW, originally formed in 2003 as an excuse to drink for free in Hollywood by longtime GUNS N’ ROSES keyboardist and QUIET RIOT guitarist ALEX GROSSI had no idea that nearly 20 years later the band would see themselves slowly morph into what many in the industry simply refer to as “legendary”.
In addition to REED and GROSSI, HOOKERS & BLOW’S current line-up includes Johnny Kelly (Type O Negative, Danzig), Mike Duda (W.A.S.P.) and Nadja.
Over the past 15 years, HOOKERS & BLOW’s members have included Todd Kerns (Slash), Chip Z’ Nuff (Enuff Z’ Nuff), Mike Dupke (WASP), Scott Griffin (LA Guns) as well as comedian Don Jamieson of VH1’s “THAT METAL SHOW” among others.
In 2013 Hookers & Blow hosted two back to back highly successful residencies st the world famous Whisky A Go Go in Hollywood and in 2018 celebrated their 15th anniversary with two extensive tours headlining their own 25 city Holiday Hangover Tour in January, as well as supporting The Dead Daisies on their first headline trek of North America, which kicked off on August 15th in Cleveland, OH, and wrapped in Hollywood on September 16th with a sold out show at The Roxy Theatre in Hollywood, CA.
In early 2019 the band entered the studio to begin work on a cover record that, much like the bands itself, has taken on a life of its own and is being called one of the most highly anticipated records of 2021.
“Golden Robot Records truly get what Hookers & Blow is all about” says Alex Grossi “So we have decided to go for it and are currently in the studio tracking an album of some of our favourite tunes, with some of our favourite people and just having FUN with it. “We can’t fucking wait to share some of what we have planned for this thing.” The band has tapped producer Alistair James who recently worked with Joe Perry and Johnny Depp on the newest Hollywood Vampires album.
Last month saw the arrival of the band’s fifth single, a cover of THE ZOMBIES‘ “Time Of The Season”. HOOKERS & BLOW previously released covers of David Bowie’s “Ziggy Stardust”, THE ROLLING STONES‘ “Rocks Off”, Eddie Money’s “Shakin’“ and LED ZEPPELIN’s “Trampled Underfoot”.
