Machine Head frontman Robb Flynn is the latest musician to upload a bunch of musical covers during coronavirus lockdown, trying his hand at tunes by a bunch of classic rock and metal acts.
In what he called his Acoustic Happy Hour live stream, Flynn performed a bunch of metal and rock classics in acoustic form, jamming out for a couple of hours.
Among other tracks, he has solid crack at Snuff by ‘Slipknot’, ‘Aerials’ by System Of A Down, ‘Change (In The House Of Flies)’ by Deftones and Dio’s Holy Diver.
The stream opens with Pink Floyd’s 1975 classic Wish You Were Here, and ‘Black’ by Pearl Jam.
The Machine Head frontman even threw on some acoustic versions of his own band’s tracks including ‘Is Anybody Out There?’ and ‘Circle The Drain’.
Flynn played the 2-hour long acoustic set live on Facebook Live, and now you can go back over the whole thing on the Machine Head official YouTube channel.
The band are still scheduled to tour Australia as part of a stack of shows globally celebrating the 25th anniversary of their debut album Burn My Eyes, with original drummer Chris Kontos and original guitarist Logan Mader returning to the lineup.
Obviously, those dates could be subject to change or cancellation depending on the state of the coronavirus pandemic by then, but tickets are still on sale via Metropolis Touring at this point.
The band also proved that love exists in the mosh pit earlier this year, when a couple got engaged at a show in Phoenix.
“Last night this man proposed in the circle pit, during the intro to ‘Death Church’ (who says romance is dead!?),” said Machine Head at the time. “Was a pretty incredible moment in the middle of a song, and a first for us!!
