On of our favorite things to come out of the COVID-19 shutdown is Two Minutes to Late Night’s “Bedroom Covers” series, which sees Gwarsenio Hall — a.k.a. Two Minutes’ corpse-paint-slathered master of ceremonies, also a.k.a. Jordan Olds, the un-corpse-painted host of The Pit’s own talk show Last Words — assembling all-star ensembles of quarantined musicians to take on classic rock and metal songs. There’s been a Chelsea Wolfe-helmed take on Ozzy’s “Crazy Train” beguiled. A Neil Fallon-fronted rendition of AC/DC’s “Riff Raff.” A raucous playthrough of White Zombie’s “Super-Charger Heaven.” The latest entry of the series, released on Memorial Day, features Sleigh Bells’ Alexis Krauss, Poison the Well’s Ryan Primack, Cloak’s Billy C. Robinson, High on Fire and Wear Your Wounds’ Chris Maggio, and, of course, Gwarsenio himself. Watch below.
“Sweet content o’ mine!” Two Minutes offer in the YouTube description. “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. This cover features Alexis Krauss of Sleigh Bells, Ryan Primack of Poison the Well, Billy C. Robinson of Cloak, and Chris Maggio of High on Fire and Wear Your Wounds.
“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.
