Hookers & Blow, which includes Guns N’ Roses keyboardist Dizzy Reed and Quiet Riot guitarist Alex Grossi, have released their own take on Led Zeppelin’s “Trampled Underfoot”. Quiet Riot drummer Frankie Banali is also featured on the cover – he passed away on August 20 following a battle with pancreatic cancer.
They recorded this individually and then was mixed during the lockdown.
“Trampled Underfoot” is the fourth single from their covers album, slated for release later this year. They previously streamed their versions of Eddie Money’s “Shakin’,” the Rolling Stones’ “Rocks Off” and David Bowie’s “Ziggy Stardust.”
Grossi said, “This song was added into our live set during our first residency at the Whisky A Go Go in 2013 for Frankie Banali (QUIET RIOT) to come down and jam on. When it came time to picking songs to cover for this record, naturally we had this one on the list, with Frankie on drums.”
Part of the proceeds from this single will benefit the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network (PanCAN).
Since their formation in 2003, their touring members have constantly changed but their current lineup includes Johnny Kelly (Type O Negative, Danzig), Robbie Crane (Black Star Riders) and Nadja Reed.
