    The Vitamin String Quartet

    Post by Rhosauce on Mon Dec 06, 2010 11:23 am

    The VSQ is a group I discovered just a few hours ago (if that). The members are all Los Angeles musicians who, from what I gather, take turns in producing tribute albums to dozens and dozens of famous and talented artists.


    "Vitamin String Quartet is about applying rock 'n' roll attitude to classical technique," says Tom Tally, a violist and arranger who has performed on and produced over thirty-five Vitamin String Quartet albums, which is one reason VSQ can count renowned film composer Danny Elfman, members of Tool, Deftones, The Killers, and Underoath as fans.

    Here are two of my favourite covers:

    Gotta have some Kiss.


    This is an amazing piece of music when done the way VSQ do it. So much better than the original.

    These guys are so awesome that famous bands help VSQ in making the tribute albums to themselves.

    Here's a taster list of artists they've covered:

    AC/DC
    Coldplay
    Flyleaf
    Jeff Buckley
    Journey
    Lady Gaga
    Mastodon
    Pantera
    Rise Against
    Santana

    If you've got iTunes, you can get a lot of their music straight from their website - some free, some not. I really recommend you check these guys out. They've covered such a huge variety of artists and genres and done almost every single one of them amazingly well.

    I actually have the whole Kiss album for them (my father's a big Kiss fan.)

    I do love these guys though, the Pantera & Mastodon stuff is very powerful.
