Happy Birthday Diz
Darren Arthur "Dizzy" Reed, was born on this date, June 18, 1963 in Hinsdale, Illinois.
He is best known as the keyboardist for Guns N' Roses, with whom he has played, toured and recorded since 1990.
Aside from frontman Axl Rose, Reed is the only member of Guns N' Roses to remain from the band's Use Your Illusion era.
These days you can catch Dizzy playing with his newest project, 'Empty V.'
Empty V plays once a week at the Dragongly in Santa Monica, California.
In 'Empty V,' Dizzy is joined by Eric Dover (Slash's Snakepit), Scott Griffin (LA Guns), and Troy Patrick Farrell of White Lion. They play the "hottest hits of the Eighties," everything from Huey Lewis to Prince.
