Video of the Week: A Smokin’ Cover of the Ides of March by Leonid & Friends

Jim Peterik of The Ides of March says of this 50th anniversary tribute to his band’s song:

I just heard what is probably the best cover of our chestnut “Vehicle” that I’ve ever heard in my life! In fact, when I first heard this, I thought it was us! And then I looked at it and saw it was all these other people…

It’s a real homage to the Ides of March and the sound we created with “Vehicle.” We couldn’t be prouder that you chose this song.  I have to tell you, the guitar solo (Sergey? Serge?) — he’s the only guitar player that’s ever copped my lead note-for-note-perfect. The horn section is tight, Vasily is great (strange to hear a little of that accent, but that’s just fine!)

Anyway, congratulations, Leonid and Friends and Great God in Heaven, we love you!
