Dizzy Reed releases his new single ‘I Celebrate’ worldwide on 12th February, taken from the album ‘Rock N’ Roll Ain’t Easy’ due for release on Golden Robot Records on 16th Feb.
Following on from the critically acclaimed single ‘This Don’t Look Like Vegas’ which garnered a huge amount of radio play, ‘I Celebrate’ is the second offering from the album and has all the makings for a rock radio hit with penetrating vocals and a solid hook, that kicks off with banging drums and guitar riffs that take you on a full-on ride from start to finish. The track features Mike Dupke (drums, cowbell), Mike Duda (bass), Richard Fortus (guitars), Mars Williams (saxophone) Dizzy Reed (lead vocals, backing vocals, clarinet, congas, tambourine, shaker), Nadja Reed and Del James (backing vocals).

Born in Hinsdale, Illinois and raised in Colorado, Dizzy started his musical journey in early childhood. His grandmother, who lived in the apartment above, played the organ, teaching him on her Lowry.
Growing up, Dizzy was exposed to his father’s love of Booker T and the MGs, and once young Dizzy realised that was the same instrument he could play, he was hooked. By the age of 12 he was touring with his band. Other early influences were John Lord, Gregg Rolie, and Grand Funk Railroad.In 1985, Dizzy moved to Los Angeles, where a wild, rich musical scene was hitting its stride.
While rehearsing in a Hollywood practice room, Dizzy befriended Axl Rose, and in 1990 he joined Guns N’ Roses on keys, percussion and backing vocals. In 2012, Dizzy was inducted into the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame as a member of the band. He has also toured with the Psychedelic Furs and has recorded and written with supergroup The Dead Daisies, as well as singing lead vocals with his side project, Hookers and Blow.
Dizzy is a father of four and lives with his New Zealand-born wife, Nadja, in LA. On surviving and flourishing in rocks ‘sharky’ waters, he says, “Never stop learning and exploring, but don’t forget what you do best. Stick to your guns.”
