Watch Vio-lence, Vision Of Disorder, Nonpoint, Etc. Members Cover Don Henley‘s “The Boys Of Summer“

Phil Demmel (Vio-lence, ex-Machine Head), Tim Williams (Vision Of Disorder, Bloodsimple), Robb Rivera (Nonpoint), Piggy D (Rob Zombie, The Haxans), and Marta Demmel (Bleeding Through) have joined forces for a cover of Don Henley‘s “The Boys Of Summer.“ You can check that out below. Phil Demmel commented:

“Been wanting to do a cover with Robb Rivera, Tim Williams and Piggy D for awhile, but as the the Vio-lence recording was progressing and other (paying) opportunities were becoming priority to my recording practice, I was phasing out the collab-a-jams as the music industry is starting to crawl back. Then @pauliezofficial approached me about contributing another song for the @davidzfoundation fundraiser this year it presented this opportunity to jam with my buds. My wife Marta added some awesome keys and our youngest son, Magnus makes his video premiere. Please check out the foundation and it’s cause and thanks to all who helped create this jam.”
