Real estate agent, metalhead and singer of Less Than Jake Chris DeMakes covered Motley Crue’s “Home Sweet Home” for Rare Breed Recording Company Flexi Subscription. The flexi subscription is available for pre-order and will ship in early 2016.
Chris talked about the track and recording a few songs for Rare Breed:
I was approached by Vinnie and Obi to participate in their Rare Breed series. They played me a few tracks they had with other artists singing. I thought it was great and was immediately intrigued by the idea of doing a few 80’s metal songs retooled into reggae tunes.
After much consideration, I settled on “Home Sweet Home” by Motley Crue. The 80’s metal tunes often get a lot of slack, but when you look past the image of the bands and listen to the melodies with open ears, there’s a lot of good stuff there. When I heard the reggae arrangement, I knew I had made a cool choice.
I’m super excited about this project and am honored I was asked to be a part of it. Can’t wait to share more of these tunes with you!
