NEW GREATEST HITS ALBUM + GIVE ME SATURDAY NIGHT NATIONAL TOUR
While still in his teens, American born guitarist/singer Mark Lizotte was snatched from his bar band in Perth and launched on to the Australian charts as the leader of Johnny Diesel and the Injectors. A career was born and now some 30 years later Diesel is still rocking Saturday nights around the nation.
Diesel is one of those rare talents who has immense popular appeal and is also a musician’s musician. His guitar playing is always tasteful and inventive. It’s based around the rock and soul that he heard growing up as the son of a saxophonist.
However steeped in the classics he may be, Diesel is not afraid to experiment either.
“I always wanted to be an electric guitar player, I always wanted to be in front of an amp,” he says.
“I enjoy the economy of the solo acoustic work as it gives you a really good sense of reality, but I can’t wait to light up Saturday nights right across Australia on this very special 30th Anniversary Tour”.
In celebration of the new album, Diesel and his band will be heading out on the Give Me Saturday Night national tour in 2018 to perform a ‘best of’ collection of tracks from the upcoming album, ‘Diesel 30 The Greatest Hits’ due for release in August.
