Anthrax Reveal Cheap Trick Cover
The project pays tribute to the classic songs by some of Anthrax's favorite bands from the 1970s.
"We were toying around with the idea of doing a Cheap Trick song, and 'Big Eyes' was one of our favorites," said drummer Charlie Benante. "We recorded it, but then got busy with other things, so we never finished it. What happened was, Joey was out in LA doing vocals for the EP and Jay Ruston [co-producer] pulled 'Big Eyes' up and had Joey do the vocals, something we didn't know he was going to do. But it turned out so great. Joey's vocals are so amazing, so we knew we wanted the song on the EP."
"Big Eyes" originally appeared on Cheap Trick's second album, 1977's "In Color." more on this story
