Mastodon julkaisi oman versionsa Led Zeppelinin kappaleesta ”Stairway To Heaven”

Mastodon

Yhdysvaltalaisyhtye Mastodon on julkaissut kotimaassaan vietettävän Record Store Dayn johdosta erikoisvinyylin, jolta löytyy bändin edesmenneelle managerille Nick Johnille omistettu versio Led Zeppelinin upeasta kappaleesta ”Stairway To Heaven”. Yhtye on kertonut Nick Johnin olleen heille eräänlainen isähahmo:

 

”In early September 2018, we lost one of our closest friends and our biggest fan, our manager Nick John. He was essentially the band’s Dad. From our highest highs to our lowest lows he was always there. Every single move we made went through him first as our trust in him was marrow deep. His favorite band besides us and Gojira, was Led Zeppelin. We were asked to perform ’Stairway to Heaven’ at his funeral. Afterward, finding out that someone had recorded it, we figured we should record a studio version and release it on Record Store Day as a tribute to Nick with all the proceeds to be donated to pancreatic cancer research. We would not be the band we are today without the help of Nick John. We miss him dearly and think of him always. We love you buddy.”
