“I think The Lemon Song is kind of a sleeper track on this EP. Everybody has covered Zeppelin – I mean everybody! – and it’s so hard to better what they did. Like it is with Van Halen, you really can't. But I do think that The Lemon Song shows off Adrenaline Mob’s ability to stretch.
“John Moyer is the MVP of this particular track with the walking bassline he does. He really nails what John Paul Jones originally did. I also have to give it up to Russell Allen, whose vocals are through the roof. Everybody knows he can sing with grit and balls and power, but here he tackles the blues with authentic feel. And what about Mike Orlando paying tribute to Jimmy Page’s classic riffs and genius? At the same time, he adds his own little twists. Our version of The Lemon Song might be one of my favorite Zeppelin covers.
“As for myself, when I cover John Bonham, whether it’s on this EP or with the tribute band I did with Paul Gilbert, I don’t stray from what he did. You put on your Bonzo shoes and you pay tribute. You’re not going to hear any Mike Portnoy here. True, I did throw in a little double bass at the end, just to kick it up a notch and add some power, but the other 95 percent is me in full-on Bonzo mode, and I’m just doing him.”
