It's been a long time since I posted a live, raw cover video. The emotion and honesty that BANKS put into crafting "Under The Table" is beautiful and I felt connected to the song immediately when I first heard it last year. Thanks for watching. ♡
My W.A.S.P. cover passed half a million views on YouTube so I thought I'd share this video from our live full band performance of "Sleeping (In The Fire)" on the Wacken Full Metal Cruise II! Thank you to Peter Rohde for sending the clips and everyone who has supported my version of this incredible song.

See the acoustic version that I posted last year to commemorate three years of his passing here. For more information on his cancer fund, visit diocancerfund.org.
