The Boys Of Summer Cover

Watch Vision Of Disorder, Rob Zombie, Nonpoint, Bleeding Through & Vio-lence Members Cover “The Boys Of Summer”


Vio-lence guitarist Phil Demmel has released a guest-laden cover of Don Henley‘s 1984 track “The Boys Of Summer“. Joining him on this rendition are members of Vision Of Disorder, Rob Zombie, Bleeding Through, Nonpoint and more. The recording lineup runs as follows:

Vocals: Tim Williams (Vision Of Disorder, Bloodsimple., Rollin’ Coffin)
Drums: Robb Rivera (Nonpoint)
Bass: Piggy D (Rob Zombie)
Keys: Marta Demmel (Bleeding Through)
Guitars: Phil Demmel (Vio-lence, BPMD, Echoes Of Reckoning)

Juan Urteaga (Machine Head, Testament) mixed the track, while Demmel had the following to say of it:

“Been wanting to do a cover with Robb Rivera, Tim Williams and Piggy D for awhile, but as the the Vio-lence recording was progressing and other (paying) opportunities were becoming priority to my recording practice, I was phasing out the collab-a-jams as the music industry is starting to crawl back.

Then @pauliezofficial approached me about contributing another song for the @davidzfoundation fundraiser this year it presented this opportunity to jam with my buds.

My wife Marta added some awesome keys and our youngest son, Magnus makes his video premiere. Please check out the foundation and it’s cause and thanks to all who helped create this jam.”

The song was released as part of a fundraiser for the David Z Foundation, a non-profit focused on helping bring music programs and more to low-income families and high-risk children.
