Hook of the Day - Brent Hinds, Bill Kelliher, & Scott Gorham "Emerald"

Hey, this is fun! Mastodon guitar gods Brent Hinds and Bill Kelliher sit down with Thin Lizzy's Scott Gorham for an acoustic run-thru of Lizzy's "Emerald" , which Mastodon is known for busting out live from time to time.

According to Blabbermouth, Mastodon is hoping Gorham will join them onstage at the UK's Sonisphere this August for a balls-out, triple guitar'd take on the song.

You gotta sit through a trailer for "Observe & Report" first, but it looks awesome, so no worries.

This came up the other day off-blog, so let's rock it here. Don't just automatically label these guys as just another "hair metal band". They were rocking pre-Tawny, and they are still rocking. Case in point:
