Chaka Khan And Steven Tyler To Cover Led Zeppelin
The Queen of Funk is teaming up with a rock legend to record a classic Led Zeppelin track for her new duets album.
Chaka tells Billboard that she met Steven at a party hosted by Sir Elton John and the two just clicked. The pair decided they should collaborate with each other by a “neutral band. A band we both love”, so they decided on Led Zeppelin.
Here’s the funny thing. Steven Tyler tried out for Led Zeppelin and it was an epic fail because Steven didn’t know any Led Zeppelin songs and even told the band members he wasn’t familiar with their song catalog.
All I can say is this should be interesting.
