The following statement was issued:

“Pork roll, egg, and cheese! We helped Slipknot drummer Jay Weinberg make a father’s day gift for his dad (Bruce Springsteen‘s drummer and comedy legend Max Weinberg!!!) but frankly, this gift is for everyone. So grab a denim jacket, wear a face mask, and stay out of those BADLANDS! This is our tenth bedroom cover made with the support of Patreon. With so many musicians stuck at home with no outlets, we’re going to keep producing these style videos and use the Patreon to give some money to everyone who has a part in them.

‘Cause we got some stuff done, but it wasn’t a major lot. But there’s definitely all these… there’s like two hours worth of ideas, it’s just putting them all together you know? And feeling each other out and having different… We kind want to make it like so we can have different people, like different bass players, different drummers, different singers, different people playing tambourine, whatever [laughs]. Like some sax guys… ‘oh, what’s that dude doing over there, he’s choking a goose!’ [imitates sax] [laughs].”
