The first cover song I recorded was always going to be a Queen song, but I wanted to do something a little different.
After searching the internet I found the original vocal tracks. Using the original vocals Sakito and I went about recording the rest of the instruments. It was great recording with the original Queen vocals. However to give it an added twist I also found a rare recording of the vocals from a live version of the song by Metallica…
So on the last verse you can hear Freddie Mercury, James Hetfield with Sakito and I…
I have rewritten some parts quite a lot but I hope you enjoy our version of Stone Cold Crazy.
I’m sure it infringes on every copyright in the book, but hey, its just for fun.
ps: The original suggestion to do a cover came from my brother Robert. Nice one bro!
