Who are the Daredevils? They were a band made up of Brett Gurewitz from Bad Religion/Epitah Records and with Josh Freese (drummer), Gore Verbinski (Yes, the director) and Dean Opseth. This was a side band for Brett after Bad Religion broke up temporarily. I knew Brett and Josh. Did not know Gore or Dean.
It was a publicity shoot for Brett’s label Epitah Records. They only released a single I think. We did the shoot at The Chateau Marmont Hotel on Sunset Blvd. We got one of the bungalows and had fun. We made such a mess. I remember one dumb idea was to pour ketchup all over the bed to make it look like blood. I had to steal the sheets from the room. I did NOT want them to see the mess.
In the end they used the photos and I was happy. I also didn’t have to pay any extra money for the BIG mess we left behind. I assume The Chateau Marmont was used to it by now. I’ve had some seriously great times at that hotel. Some I can’t remember. Ugh.
