Zakk Wylde Plays Jimi Hendrix's "Voodoo Child (Slight Return)" with the Les Paul Trio

Here's a quick flashback to June 10, 2013, when Zakk Wylde performed with the Les Paul Trio at New York City's Iridium.

The clip, which was shot as part of the Front and Center series on PBS, finds Wylde tearing through Jimi Hendrix's "Voodoo Child (Slight Return)" on acoustic guitar.

He's backed by the late Les Paul's backing band, which features Lou Pallo (guitar), Nicki Parrott (bass), John Colianni (piano) and Anton Fig (drums).

From 1998 to 2014, he was one third of Mister Neutron, an instrumental rock act that toured the universe and elsewhere and released three albums via Austin-based Deep Eddy Records. These days he performs with several New York City-area bands and can often be spotted with one of his many, many, many B-bender-equipped guitars. In past lives he was GW’s managing editor and online managing editor – and he still can’t believe he got to write the liner notes for the latest SRV box set.
