“Smoke on the Water” by David Gilmour, et al. (Deep Purple cover)
We all came out to Montreux On the Lake Geneva shoreline To make records with a mobile We didn’t have much time Frank Zappa and the Mothers Were at the best place around But some stupid with a flare gun Burned the place to the ground
A really cool thing happened in the late 80′s - David Gilmour, Brian May, Tony Iommi, Ian Gillan, and Bruce Dickinson (and others) got together to record a few versions of THE Deep Purple song to benefit victims of the earthquake in Armenia.
If you haven’t heard this yet, I strongly advise you do
Members from the bands Pink Floyd, Queen, Black Sabbath, Rush, Deep Purple, Yes, Iron Maiden, Bad Company, Emerson Lake & Palmer, and the solo artist Bryan Adams came together to record a kick-ass version of Smoke on the Water to raise funds to rebuilt things destroyed by an earthquake
It’s something every classic rock fan HAS to listen to
