CKY’s Jess Margera Guests On New Roadkiller Song “Like The Crow”

Roadkiller have teamed up with CKY drummer Jess Margera for a new song titled “Like The Crow.” You can find a video for that track below. Roadkiller’s Phillipa Tank commented:

“I knew Jess Margera would be perfect for it. He obliged and we knocked it out at the hobbit hole at Castle Bam before Castle Bam was Castlebam Studios. We tracked with Chris Weyh, beers and Spinal Tap!”

Margera added:

“I had so much fun being part of this badass album. This particular track has more hooks than a tackle box and is heavier than a death in the family.”

During a recent interview with Guitar World, Rush’s Alex Lifeson was asked about the possibility of making new music with Geddy Lee. He responded with the following:

“We’re not putting any pressure on it or anything. We had a lot of good years together and we still love each other very much. I talk to Geddy every other day — we’re best friends. There’s more to our life together than just writing music. So if it happens, it happens. And it’ll happen when it happens.”
