Fade to Bluegrass

A bluegrass Metallica tribute album is right up my street. I love the cover of Enter Sandman.

Metallica’s thundering drums, heart-pounding guitars and anguished vocals tell the story of people lost in the hustle of modern society. Bluegrass music sings the tale of people stuck between heaven and hell, the farm and the city and love and hate. In many ways Metallica and bluegrass are brothers, one raised in the urban jungle and the other in the country. So what happens when these two estranged siblings get together?

And then... Anthony's right! "Pickin' on Zeppelin" is a bluegrass Zeppelin tribute album. The link leads to music samples at Amazon (and no, the Flea does not take a cut from any sales). I love bluegrass Kashmir...

There's also a bluegrass Zepplin disc floating around somewhere.
