Glenn Danzig Covering Black Sabbath, ZZ Top On New Album

(Classic Rock) Glenn Danzig has revealed his upcoming solo covers album will feature tracks by Black Sabbath, ZZ Top and the Everly Brothers. The singer says Skeletons could be released as soon as next month, although no exact date has been announced.

Black Sabbath's N.I.B, Rough Boy by ZZ Top, The Troggs' A Girl Like You and Crying In The Rain by the Everly Brothers feature on the record. On his Sabbath cover, Danzig tells Rolling Stone:

"It's one of the Sabbath songs I really liked, and the first Sabbath record is pretty groundbreaking. I just dropped it down to a half beat, pulled all the bass out of the beginning, and it's just drums, guitar and vocals. When the chorus comes in, it's just big old bass chords and church bells.

"My attitude with covers is, make it your own or else leave it alone." He also hints that work on the next Danzig album is coming along nicely. Read more here.
