Amazing Cover Bands: David Garett Performs Metallica's "Master of Puppets"

Check out this video interview and performance with violinist David Garrett that Rolling Stone recently posted. He discusses his methods for transforming songs like Metallica's "Master of Puppets" into a string rendition:
"Of course you kind of try to stay true to the core of the essence of the original but try to go as far as possible away, especially when you have an instrument that is not typically for rock and roll music."
Garrett goes on to prove that while the violin may not make an appearance at most Metallica concerts, the instrument can still rock just as hard.
"I always considered the violin quite close to the guitar."
His new album Rock Symphonies features covers of songs like Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” Guns n’ Roses’ “November Rain,” Metallica’s “Master of Puppets” and Led Zeppelin’s “Kashmir.” Recommended Listening:
