Achilles Last Stand Drum Cover (I nailed it first take!!)

Recommended Posts

https://db.tt/CFBui4r7

I know there are quite a few out there who can't stand listening to drum covers, but as Led Zeppelin fans, I emplore you to consider listening to mine.

Tonight I jumped into the studio with my engineer friend Ovidiu (he's Romanian, I'm English. Hi!) and I decided to do a few covers; Locked Out Of Heaven, In My Life, to name a few. Almost knackered out at this point, I decided to take on the mightiest of songs, Achilles Last Stand as I knew conquering that would ensure my right of passage as a man, and a drummer - And I tried to pay homage to my hero justly.

First take was going well, but a short way through realised the track wasn't loud enough in my headphones for me to follow, especially as the Zeppelin tracks can be muddy at times. So we adjusted that. Next take was going well too, until half way through the fackin' crash cymbal stand decided to collapse on me and the drum kit! 3rd take, and by this point I was nearing exhaustion but this time I was ready, and I really think I did a good job and wanted to share it with you guys. 

For the drummers in here, I hope you appreciate the smoothness and accuracy with which I performed that blinding single stroke drum fill near the beginning ;) 

Let me know what you guys think of my efforts, and remember to turn it up!

I'd like to hear it but I can't get it to download.

Hey there! Thanks for replying. I've actually done another rough take in a rehearsal room and managed to upload it to YouTube, along with the above studio take which is also there now rather than via the dreaded Dropbox. You can check them both out on my channel dude here:
