The Bootleggers feat. Mark Lanegan – Fire And Brimstone (Link Wray Cover Version) (2012)

Scroll down to content

Things became even more surreal when they hooked up with [veteran Ralph] Stanley and his guitarist on Skype. “Ralph is a serious guy and his guitarist is even more so. We asked him to cover Link Wray’s Fire and Brimstone and he did it in 3/4 time, with a swing, because that’s what he knows. So, there’s Warren and me trying to explain that we want it in 4/4 time – rock’n’roll. Ralph is saying nothing and the guitarist is just looking at us as like he wants to string us up. It was like: ‘Who the hell are these freaks telling Ralph Stanley how to sing?'” [Source]
