Cheap Trick’s Tom Petersson collaborates on cover of Big Star’s “The Ballad of El Goodo”

Cheap Trick bassist Tom Petersson recently teamed up remotely with Jody Stephens, founding drummer of the influential power-pop band Big Star, and other musicians for a rendition of the 1972 Big Star gem “The Ballad of El Goodo,” during a virtual benefit event hosted by Memphis’ famed Ardent Studios.

You can check out a video of the performance, which also featured ex-Black Crowes guitarist Audley Freed and current Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit lead guitarist Sadler Vaden, at Vaden’s official YouTube channel.

Love Big Star + Love Cheap Trick = a real treat.
