Unlisted Grey Daze Shows / Notes

Recommended Posts

This photo from Sean's collection was recently posted on Grey Daze's social media. It is the band performing in Rally Kap Sports Bar in 1994.

It is confirmed by Jonathan Krause, the following ones were taken the same day in Rally Kap:

1) Obviously, it's not this show: http://lplive.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=11757

2) Obviously, it's not the show with Tripping With Grace, since the flyer for that show has a photo from this photoshoot.

3) Someone in the comments for that Facebook post recalled seeing the band opening for Pelvic Meatloaf in Rally Kap and asked if it was taken that night. So, either it is that show or there were more than 3 shows in this venue.

We should add the show from my previous message to the guide as

1997.xx.xx Tempe, AZ, Electric Ballroom

New GD show for the guide, from Samantha's Instagram:

"I first met Chester Bennington on January 28th, 1996 at Club Rio in Tempe Arizona, where his Band Grey Daze was performing. ..."

Chester left Grey Daze in mid 1998, he was never in the band in 1999. He said he actually quit music altogether and was worked odd jobs during that time until he got a call about Xero in 1999. Anyways, cool info about the first time she met Chester, I knew she met him at a Grey Daze show, it's cool to know the date.

She meant 96. Not 99.

Read the full thing, it is 3 pages, she says he left in 1999. I know she met him in 1996.

Thanks a lot, StaticXero.

We will add the show as

 

1996.01.28 Tempe, AZ, Club Rio

 

I'm slowly getting back on track after some time of absence, so I will answer everything I was asked about here and in PM's soon. I know there's some stuff I still should release.

 

Anyway, here's a new clipping for 1993.05.02 SDAHF Library Cafe date:92812373_681420975732502_8652924200111046656_n.jpg

So knowing that according to several people Grey Daze split up shortly after their minitour to California that featured Coconut Teaszer and Whisky shows, I later found out the band played Coconut Teaszer in October, 1997 (it's in the guide) and this date doesn't really fit the narrative, so I've had to figure out if the band played there more than once. I know Sean is saying they played in LA/Hollywood multiple times in his book, but having nobody else ever saying anything like that, I needed someone else to fact check it.

I've asked the band manager at the time Kerry Rose: 

"I think we went to LA twice, although my memory is a little fuzzy on the details. I remember us doing several showcases primarily for record label people, but can’t remember where or when. The Whiskey show was definitely a highlight show from our time there. I remember another really great show we did on the campus of UCLA too"

Awesome, thanks a lot for these!

I was just looking for someone who has the book. Can you also, please, post some pictures of that magazine article that's also in the book, the photo of a venue marquee that says Grey Daze along with other bands, God's Afraid handwritten lyrics, etc? This thread is good for that.

I hope LP Catalog will cover all pages of the deluxe version. Their scans will have a better quality than my photos.

Thanks to Ива Тошкова, I've got those pics and attached them to this post.

The article has info on 3 show dates, but all of them are already in the guide. At least, we now know there likely weren't any shows in between those three.

The pic with the Geckos' ad has no info to figure out the exact date, but that's the first time I hear about this venue/bar, so at least that's a clue to do more research.

The pic with the Whisky A Go Go marquee is the most interesting one.

The band was opening for Friik and Furbucket that night. Friik is the band John Dolmayan of SOAD used to play with and SOAD actually has a demo with the same name. Another friendly Phoenix band that almost entirely consisted of Sean Dowdell's relatives called Necessary Enemy played before Grey Daze.

It is not clear why Grey Daze then listed again on the Marquee as Grey Days. Likely just a mistake.

Yep, I've seen it being spelled like that on old ads like 5-6 times. That's the most common misspelling. Sometimes it is even Greydays, without a space.
