here’s Post Malone’s all-Nirvana covers set, with Travis Barker on drums
UPDATE: Post Malone released his first original music of the year, "Motley Crew," which features NASCAR drivers Bubba Wallace and Denny Hamlin, plus Ty Dolla $ign, Big Sean, Tommy Lee, and more in the video.
As he said he would, Post Malone did an all-Nirvana covers livestream today (4/24) with proceeds going to the United Nations Foundation’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for The World Health Organization, and as of this post he has raised over $2 million. (You can donate for the next 66 days, and Google.org will match $5 million.) What wasn't announced, was that his drummer would be none other than Travis Barker of blink-182. (And the band was rounded out by guitarist Nick Mac and bassist Brian Lee.)
What do you think? Was Posty's set better than Puddle of Mudd covering "About A Girl"? If you didn't watch, and you want to, you can stream the full set and view the setlist below. Donations are being taken here.
