Just from those two tracks' lineups the album seems to be a solid venture. It would've been cool to get a hold of Jason Bonham for Whole Lotta Love, but Zak Starkey seems to have the chops to work fine on it.

Zak's super-talented, I have seen him play with The Who and Johnny Marr.

I normally don't buy [Insert artist here] and friends-type albums, but this one will be an exception. Any news of an expected release date? Edit: Nevermind, I found it on iTunes.

@earthdog70, yeah, I remember watching The Who's Halftime Show a few years ago and thinking the kid drumming looked out of place (next to the veteran members, he looked like he could be 25), but I thought he did really well. Now I realize that he's the son of Ringo Starr? And he's had connections to Keith Moon?
