To honor their recently departed longtime manager and friend, Nick John, Mastodon have recorded a faithful, evocative cover of Led Zeppelin's inescapable classic "Stairway to Heaven" as a Record Store Day 2019 exclusive.
John passed away in September 2018 following a battle with pancreatic cancer. Mastodon paid tribute to their friend, who they refer to as the "the band's Dad," by performing a touching version of Led Zeppelin's classic track at his funeral — an experience drummer Brann Dailor, who assumed the lead vocal duties on the track, called "daunting."
After hearing an amateur recording of that performance — captured by Gojira's Joe Duplantier on his phone — Mastodon decided to lay down the studio version of the tribute, which they're packaging as the "Stairway to Nick John" 10-inch vinyl for Record Store Day on Saturday, April 13th. Only 1,500 copies of the records were pressed and all proceeds from their sale will go to benefit the Hirshberg Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research.
