Sepultura, Ex-KISS, Etc. Guitarists Cover The Police’s “Synchronicity II”

Bruce Kulick (ex-KISS, etc.), Joel Hoekstra (Whitesnake, etc.), Monte Pittman (ex-Prong, etc.), Andreas Kisser (Sepultura), Tommy Denander (Alice Cooper, etc.), David Palau (Bobby Kimball, etc.), Gabe Treiyer (Bobby Kimball, etc.), Gary O´Toole (Steve Hackett), Pablo Motyczak (Rata Blanca), and J.A.F. have teamed up for a quarantine cover of The Police’s “Synchronicity II.” The performance, which was organized by Gabe Treiyer, will also act as a fundraiser for the Red Cross to help out with COVID-19 relief efforts.

Treiyer commented:

“I’ve been thinking of a way to entertain and help at the same time those that are isolated because of the quarantine while staying at home, and maybe suffering the loss of a friend or family member.

So I decided to call some friends. I explained them what this was all about, and they jumped in inmediately.

Even though I’ve never been in touch with some of them, like Andreas or Monte, they are players that I really admire and follow and I’m really happy that they decided to join anyway. The idea is to give people some entertainment during this global pandemic period, and the ‘synchronicity’ concept of the song, translated as unity between us (musicians), all based around the globe, could send out a message of hope to other people during these difficult times, and also encouraging them as well to help others.”
