The New York rockers TRAGEDY: ALL METAL TRIBUTE TO THE BEE GEES & BEYOND have released the official video for their cover version of "You're the One That I Want", a song written by John Farrar for the 1978 film version of the musical "Grease". The clip, which can be seen below, has taken North America by storm with more than 200,000 views in its first week on YouTube.
"You're the One That I Want" is taken from TRAGEDY's fourth studio album, "The Solo Albums", which was recently released. This CD's concept, inspired by KISS's solo albums, has the band doing some tracks together, and some as solo tracks, dedicated to their fellow band members. The album features TRAGEDY-metalized versions of songs by SISTER SLEDGE, THE VILLAGE PEOPLE, NEIL DIAMOND, and, yes... the BEE GEES... alongside many more.
TRAGEDY is a metal discothèque from the shiny glamorous streets of New York. The band has covered the classic tracks of THE BEE GEES in true fashion but has given them an infectious groove with a metal sound that has riffs catchy enough to pop your socks off. The group is fronted by the nucleus of Barry Glibb (vocals, guitars, piano) and Mo'royce Peterson (vocals, guitars).
* Barry Glibb - lead vocals, lead back-up vocals, lead rhythm guitar
* Mo'Royce Peterson - lead vocals, lead back-up vocals, lead lead guitar
* Disco Mountain Man - lead vocals, lead back-up vocals, lead keyboards, lead cowbell
* Andy Gibbous Waning - lead bass, lead vocals, lead back-up vocals
* The Lord Gibbeth - lead drums
Asked by RFTK Promotions where the idea for TRAGEDY came from, Peterson said: "I was producing an album for Barry's old band, CHILDREN OF THE UNICORN, when we got a call from a promoter friend who asked if we had any ideas for a support band for this big Neil Diamond tribute, SUPER DIAMOND, who was doing a weekend at New York City's Irving Plaza. We said, 'Yeah, sure, we'll be a metal tribute to the BEE GEES… haha,' and the promoter said, 'Okay, as long as I'm in it.' The promoter became our dearly departed brother, Robin Gibbens, and the band became TRAGEDY. We thought we'd do those two shows and that would be it. But everything connected in a special way — the music, the fans, the personnel… and here we are a few years later on the cusp of our 11th international tour."
