Live at Rolling Stone: David Garrett

Violin virtuoso performs inventive takes on "Walk This Way," "Master of Puppets"

By |

David Garrett is a classically-trained violinist with rock & roll as his inspiration. On his new disc, Rock Symphonies, the German-born musician offers deft, imaginative takes on rock classics like Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit," Guns n' Roses' "November Rain," Metallica's "Master of Puppets" and Led Zeppelin's "Kashmir." Garrett recently dropped by Rolling Stone to perform a couple tunes -- including a killer version of Aerosmith's "Walk This Way" and "Master of Puppets" -- and opened up about why classical music can appeal to rock fans. Check out video of the performance above.
