July 27, 2020
Former MACHINE HEAD and current VIO-LENCE guitarist Phil Demmel has teamed up with singer Jeff Scott Soto (SONS OF APOLLO, JOURNEY),bassist Billy Sheehan (SONS OF APOLLO, THE WINERY DOGS, DAVID LEE ROTH) and drummer Dave McClain (SACRED REICH, MACHINE HEAD) to record a "quarantine" cover version of the VAN HALEN song "Loss Of Control" as part of Phil's new series "Collab-A-Jam".
Phil uploaded the video to his YouTube channel, writing in an accompanying message: "This a song Dave and I have been jamming for awhile. It had to be covered.
"While I was touring with NONPOINT last year, my bud Jeff came to a show and we talked about our VH worship. He went on to show me his 'tri-tone' DLR screams that pretty much NO ONE can match. I've been waiting for the perfect tune to come along to ask him to do and this was perfect!
"I was going to reach for the moon and ask him to hit up his band-mate Billy to join us but he beat me to the punch and MADE IT HAPPEN. McClain puts on a tight shirt/Alex VH shades and kills this.
"If you haven't seen DLR's 1983 US Festival footage, check it out to get our opening scene Iced Tea reference.
"Such an honor to be joined by these guys to jam on a kick-ass song by some of our heroes of Rock."
