Kirk Windstein (Crowbar, Etc.) Streams Cover Of Jethro Tull’s “Aqualung”

Kirk Windstein (Crowbar, etc.) is streaming his cover of Jethro Tull’s “Aqualung.” This track is from his new solo album, “Dream In Motion,” which will be released on January 24. Windstein commented:

“‘Aqualung‘ has always been one of my favorite classic rock songs. Crowbar used to cover it. Because everything’s in D Standard, I was able to pick out the natural key that the song’s in, so it’s exactly like the Jethro Tull version. That guitar solo was named the Number 25 Greatest Solo of All Time on a readers poll in Guitar World or something. I’m really proud of the way the song came out as a whole. I think I did a good job on it. I hope that Tull’s Ian Anderson and Martin Barre get to hear it at some point.”

Windstein said the following about the new record, which was originally going to be an acoustic release:

“Nothing against [making an acoustic record,] but It’s been done a million times. But I had been thinking about doing something a little more mellow for some time. It’s something I wanted to do, I needed to do. It’s another side of my songwriting, my personality.

It’s another side of me. It’s something I did for myself. It’s not even that this isn’t heavy, because there are bits and pieces that are very heavy. But even the heaviest riff on this is something I couldn’t really do in Crowbar. If some Crowbar fans don’t like it, I’ll understand. But I hope people dig it.”
