Members of Anthrax, Death Angel & Metal Allegiance Quarantine Jam Mother Love Bone's "Crown of Thorns"

August 27, 2020
Mother Love Bone Metal Collaboration

What a tough summer it has been for all us concert going rock/metal fans! Thank goodness we've had some quarantine home concerts to view, but no matter how cool that is, it's not the same as being surrounded by our friends in the moment. Now imagine the musicians themselves not being able to rock out with their band members. That has to be frustrating since many live in different states or countries while not on the road. So the idea started somewhere that musicians would call their friends and ask to collaborate and jam a random tune. Of all the musicians out their doing this on YouTube I think the most enjoyable and unique video performances goes to my buddy and Anthrax Drummer Charlie Benante. If you thought he was just a killer drummer, wait till ya see his other talents! 

Well today's cover post of "Chloe Dancer/Crown of Thorns" by our Seattle's own Mother Love Bone totally blew me away. Especially seeing friends Mark Osegueda (singer of Death Angel) and Mark Menghi (bassist for Metal Allegiance) also performing. Check it out...totally great and for me, I can still feel that Mother Love Bone wound is still open nearly 28 years later. Andrew Wood...what could've been.

Charlie's channel has some other awesome video gems like collaborations with Living Colour's Corey Glover 

Darryl McDaniels DMC of Run DMC, Rob Caggiano of Volbeat and Ra Diaz of Suicidal Tendencies

Rush "YYZ" jam with Alex Skolnick of Testament and Ra Diaz of Suicidal Tendencies

Let's not forgot some Kiss (in masks) with special guest John5!
