Marco Mendoza, the acclaimed bassist of The Dead Daisies, Thin Lizzy and Whitesnake, will embark on a European spring tour in May 2020.
Marco Mendoza has a musical background that is shaped by his Mexican heritage. At a young age, his grandmother in Tijuana, Mexico, led him through his steps on the piano before turning to the guitar.
After joining local bands in the Los Angeles scene at a young age, his first break was not due to come until 1989, when former Black Sabbath drummer Bill Ward recruited him as part of his solo band. This should be his springboard to play with some of the greatest bands and musicians in the rock world, including John Syke’s Blue Murder, Thin Lizzy, Ted Nugent and Whitesnake, to name a few.
With his savvy and highly sought-after skills as bassist and singer, he was also a guest musician and session player with Tommy Shaw (Styx), David Coverdale (Whitesnake), Dolores O’Riordan (Cranberries) and Neal Schon (Journey).
