Les Claypool (PRIMUS) and GOV'T MULE are among the artists paying homage to to one of America's greatest rock bands on "Under The Influence - A Jam Band Tribute to Lynyrd Skynyrd", out October 5 via Sanctuary Records. For the special 11-song disc, Sanctuary recruited some of the top names in guitar-driven rock to re-interpret their favorite classic LYNYRD SKYNYRD tunes, including BLUES TRAVELER ("Free Bird"), BIG HEAD TODD AND THE MONSTERS ("Sweet Home Alabama"), NORTH MISSISSIPPI ALLSTARS ("Whiskey Rock a Roller") and DRIVE-BY TRUCKERS ("Every Mother's Son"). Other songs set to appear on the CD include GOV'T MULE's "Simple Man" and Les Claypool's "Call Me The Breeze". CORROSION OF CONFORMITY's version of LYNYRD SKYNYRD's "On the Hunt", which was recently recorded with longtime producer John Custer in his Raleigh studio and at Sonic Wave, will appear on a different SKYNYRD tribute album, due next year via Sanctuary.
