Official band site dedicated to the music of Living Loud—a group of rock legends who came together in 2003 to make the self-titled album Living Loud.
The Living Loud Project
The project started as an idea of Bob Daisley’s more than ten years before it came to fruition. He and drummer Lee Kerslake often spoke about reworking some of the songs from the classic rock albums they had co-written, co-produced and performed on with Randy Rhoads and Ozzy Osbourne in the early ‘80’s. Those albums were ‘Blizzard of Ozz’ and ‘Diary of a Madman’.
With a desire to record a hard rock project based around these two albums, plus the infusion of a number of new tracks in the same mould, Bob assembled a superstar line up that recorded at Greg Rike’s Studio in Florida and at Air Studio in London.
When Jimmy Barnes, Steve Morse, Bob Daisley, Lee Kerslake and Don Airey came together in late 2003 to record their debut self-titled album, Living Loud, little did they know what level of interest it would attract. In early 2004, websites and press around the world celebrated the formation of rock’s latest supergroup and eagerly awaited the release of the album!
Bob co-produced the album with producer Darren Schneider (Deep Purple, Matchbox 20, Creed) and the project created some of the most inspirational new rock tunes recorded in many years. The album took just 15 days to record and was mixed and mastered at Metropolis Studios in Melbourne.
