Video: Dave Mustaine Covers Jimi Hendrix’s “Fire” and “Stone Free”

0

Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine is part of this year’s Experience Hendrix tour, on which a plethora of famous musicians perform songs by — you guessed it — Jimi Hendrix. This year’s other notable metal-friendly participants include Joe Satriani and Doug Pinnick from King’s X, but there’s also a ton of cool, notable non-metal-friendly participants, such as Jonny Lang, Eric Johnson, and Dweezil Zappa.

The trek began earlier this week in Clearwater, FL, so, naturally, fan-filmed footage has begun to emerge. Below, you can check out video of Mustaine and Jonny Lang performing “Fire,” as well Mustaine doing “Stone Free” with Billy Cox (Hendrix’s bassist) and Mato Nanji (Indigenous).
