para: smoke on the water

“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
