Dirty Honey Talk Opening for Slash, Topping the Rock Chart, and Aerosmith Praise

on May 08, 2020, 1:50pm
 

Dirty Honey are rising stars in the rock world, scoring chart-topping hits and winning over scores of new fans with their raw and rousing live shows over the past couple years.

Last year, Dirty Honey became the first unsigned act to top the Billboard Mainstream Rock singles chart when their song “When I’m Gone” hit No. 1 on the tally. The band followed that up with “Rolling 7s”, which also became a Top 5 hit.

Dirty Honey’s retro vibe has been compared to Aerosmith, AC/DC, and other classic rock acts, but they’ve carved out a unique sound of their own with guitar-driven tunes led by singer Marc Labelle’s powerful pipes.

Prior to the current pandemic, we caught up with Labelle and guitarist John Notto backstage at Dirty Honey’s gig in Brooklyn, New York, for a video interview. The pair discussed their experience opening up for Slash last year, their achievement of topping the rock chart, the song “Rolling 7s”, their various influences, and the praise they received from Tom Hamilton for their cover of Aerosmith’s “Last Child”.
