Watch Clutch, The Sword, Royal Thunder, Etc. Members Cover Styx’s “Renegade”

Mlny Parsonz (Royal Thunder), Kyle Shutt (The Sword), Jean-Paul Gaster (Clutch), Per Wiberg (Opeth, Candlemass), and Mike Squires (Duff McKagan’s Loaded) recently teamed up for a cover of Styx’s “Renegade” as part of Couch Riffs. Squires commented:

“This song, you guys, is an absolute classic and one of the biggest songs from my childhood. To this day when I hear it I get excited and electrified. So, when JP and Kyle decided to reprise their spots with Couch Riffs and suggested this song I was ALL OVER IT. Also, I didn’t want to pass up the opportunity to swap solos with Mr Shutt. We were lucky enough to further elevate this line-up with two more absolute crushers in Mlny Parsonz and Per Wiberg on vocals and keys, respectively. This cover is certainly more raw than the original version (like most all of our covers) and I’m proud of what happened here. I hope you guys enjoy this as much as we did! This was a blast!”
