Veteran QUIET RIOT drummer Frankie Banali and guitarist Alex Grossi are the newest recruits to the upcoming tribute album WHOLE LOTTA LOVE: An All-Star Salute To Fat Chicks.
Each lends their talent to a unique interpretation of the title track, originated by Led Zeppelin in 1969. All vocals are handled by newcomer Celisa Stratton, a supersized songstress of 6′2″ and 400+ lbs. A big, beautiful woman with a big, beautiful voice, she more than embodies the spirit of the album and brings all new meaning to the phrase “Whole Lotta Love.” A sample of the song is now available at the official “WHOLE LOTTA LOVE” MySpace page: http://www.myspace.com/WholeLottaLoveTribute.
Says heffer vocalist Celisa Stratton.
“Since this is a salute to fat chicks, my intention was to make the song sound FAT. So I changed the key and utilized my full vocal range to create a whole new version of the song. Hopefully in listening to this track, people will see the point of view of a proud fat woman who has a whole lotta love to give.”
