Over the past weekend, Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready made his concert-curating debut with the inaugural Peak To Sky Festival. The two-day affair in Montana was capped off by a string of Led Zeppelin covers performed by McCready and members from Guns N’ Roses, Foo Fighters and Red Hot Chili Peppers.
The supergroup included the likes of GNR’s Duff McKagan, RHCP duo Chad Smith and Josh Klinghoffer, the Foos’ Taylor Hawkins as well as Americana superstar Brandi Carlile. They delivered faithful renditions of Led Zep classics such as Immigrant Song, Moby Dick, Good Times, Bad Times, Dazed & Confused and Babe I’m Gonna Leave You.
The last cover, in particular, was executed to perfection: Carlile’s powerhouse vocals were supported by McKagan’s rumbling basslines, Klinghoffer’s acoustic guitar and McCready’s high-octane riffs. The Led Zep renditions were part of a 19-track setlist, which also included covers of iconic Queen, David Bowie and Van Halen tunes.
