watch mems of Sleigh Bells, Poison the Well, Cloak & more cover Guns N’ Roses for ‘2M2LN’
Heavy metal talk show Two Minutes To Late Night have released the seventh cover in their quarantine covers series, and this one's of Guns N' Roses' "Rocket Queen" with guest lead vocals by Sleigh Bells' Alexis Krauss. It also features Ryan Primack of Poison the Well (which is not the Poison the Well member who's actually in Sleigh Bells, but Ryan was briefly a touring member of SB), Bill C. Robinson of Cloak, Chris Maggio of tons of bands (including Wear Your Wounds, High On Fire, and alsso briefly a touring member of Sleigh Bells), and your host, Gwarsenio Hall.
"Sweet content o' mine! We got some of our favorite musicians to cover the best Guns 'N' Roses song about space travelin' royalty from the comfort of their own bedrooms," the Two Minutes to Late Night people write. They also add, "This is our seventh bedroom cover (!!!) made with the support of Patreon. With so many musicians stuck at home with no outlets, we're going to keep producing these style videos and use the Patreon to give some money to everyone who has a part in them. Please support our friends by donating to our newly redone Patreon at www.honorableswords.com."
The video's as fun as you'd hope and you can check it out below.
