01 May Lockdown cover #1 – Have a Cigar
I’ve had a lot of fun working with the guys in The Aristocrats recreating a classic rock song while in homebound lockdown. The song chosen was Pink Floyd’s Have a Cigar.
The process was for the individual personnel to record their parts in their home studio or lounge and send the files to the others. Naturally it had to start with drums from the peerless Cole Goodley. Then Jared added his bass and then there was a platform for everybody else to play on.
The files were sent around the world between Auckland, Melbourne, Mumbai and Texas. My part was to do the rhythm guitar and lead fills. It was amazing to part of.
