After entering several international charts with their latest album, Curse of Autumn, WITHERFALL have shared the video for their special cover of Boston\’s illustrious \”Foreplay/Long Time,\” entitled \”Long Time (Long Version).\” The song has been available as an Acoustic Version on Curse of Autumn, as well as slightly shorter Band Version on the Japanese edition of the album.
Watch it here.
\”Witherfall are huge fans of Boston,\” the band says. \”We are obviously influenced by the rich guitar and vocal harmony work. Joseph grew up in upstate New York, and Tom Scholz would come to his grandpa\’s lawnmower shop for repair work. Upon becoming interested in playing guitar, Joseph would frequent Bank Place Guitars, a shop owned by Joe Bonamassa\’s father and Tom Scholz. Our version of Boston\’s \’Foreplay/Long Time\’ is a tribute to one of the greatest voices in rock and roll history — Boston vocalist Brad Delp, who in 2007, tragically took his own life. The re-working of this song reflects the true emotions behind the lyrical content. RIP.\”
