Sons of the Sea do impromtu Led Zeppelin cover on Alt Nation

November 5, 2013

Incubus front man Brandon Boyd and mega alt-rock producer Brendan O’Brien were on Alt Nation to talk about their Sons of the Sea side-project, which is out now. They played some acoustic tracks off the album and then we said it would be awesome if they did a cover, but we don’t always expect it. What happened next is one of those cool/magical things you get to witness here at SiriusXM.

Brandon Boyd literally took out his iPhone and Googled the lyrics to Led Zeppelin’s Friends, then they took about 15 minutes in Studio 1 to work out the pacing, came back in and nailed it. I really don’t think they’d ever played it before. Listen below to hear for yourself and check out SiriusXM On Demand for the whole interview and performance.
