Atlanta’s own, Mastodon, recently recorded a cover version of the Led Zeppelin classic, Stairway to Heaven. Released on this year’s Record Store Day, the single, renamed Stairway To Nick John, was in tribute to the band’s late manager, Nick John, who passed away from pancreatic cancer late last year. Proceeds from the sale of the single will go to the Hirshberg Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research. Only about 1500 copies of the single were produced. So in case you didn’t have a chance to grab your copy, check out the single below.
Mastodon will hit the road with Coheed and Cambria and Every Time I Die on May 28 and will run through July 3. The band is looking to have a new album next year.
