Metal Allegiance Tribute Lemmy, Bowie, Glenn Frey On New EP

Metal Allegiance

(TeamRock Radio) Metal Allegiance will pay tribute to Lemmy, David Bowie, and Glenn Frey on a new EP. The supergroup release Fallen Heroes on August 12 and say it is in homage to three late music stars - Motorhead man Lemmy Kilmister, David Bowie and Eagles founder Glenn Frey.

Metal Allegiance's rotating all-star line-up includes Megadeth's Dave Ellefson, Alex Skolnick of Testament, Mike Portnoy of Dream Theater, Charlie Benante from Anthrax, Mike Menghi and Slayer's Gary Holt.

Fallen Heroes features covers of Motorhead's Iron Fist, Bowie's Suffragette City and the Eagles' Life In The Fast Lane. Menghi says: "The end of 2015 and most of 2016 has been a brutal year with many of our heroes passing. When Portnoy called me in January to alert me that Glenn Frey had passed, I literally broke down. That night after having a few tequila sunrises in Glenn's honor, a lightbulb went off - we're going to record a few tunes to honor our fallen heroes.

"I called back Mike that evening and asked him what he thought and the next day we were in the studio recording. By week's end, all guitars, drums and bass were complete. I can't begin to explain the influence that Glenn Frey, Lemmy, and David Bowie had on me.

"Each of their music has helped me immensely during some real dark periods of my life and not to mention their influence on me as a musician and songwriter. Lemmy is God, Glenn is King and David is the architect." Read more here.
