WHOLE LOTTA LOVE: Actually Recruit Fat Chick to Sing on the Record
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.”
