Former Presidents of the United States of America guitarist Andrew McKeag and his band are set to release their self-titled debut this Friday, November 17. Today, presents one of the album's fiercest tracks, a cover of Mountain's "Never in My Life" that features additional fretwork from Aerosmith's Brad Whitford and Zakk Wylde. You can listen to it below.

"This all started when I went to see Aerosmith at Kaaboo Festival last year, near where I live in San Diego," McKeag said. "Brad Whitford and I had become pals on the Experience Hendrix tours we’ve done together, and we share a love for heavy 60’s and early 70’s blues rock. While I was watching their gig that night it occurred to me that I might be able to get Brad to play on a version of “Never In My Life” by Mountain, as it’s a band and song we both hold in high regard."
