"Whole Lotta Love: An All-Star Salute To Fat Chicks" is a musical homage to the big, beautiful women who make the rockin' world go 'round. The tribute will feature all-new recordings of popular songs praising the fuller female figure, originally made famous by some of the biggest names in rock and pop music. These anthems to abundance will be performed by renowned rock and rollers from yesterday and today, along with a select few rising stars. In direct opposition to the "no-fat-chicks" mantra espoused by some, "Whole Lotta Love" will be a star-studded celebration of large and lovely ladies. Songs confirmed so far include QUEEN's arena-rock classic "Fat Bottomed Girls" by L.A. GUNS singer Phil Lewis, with guitarist Paul LaPlaca and drummer John Macaluso. Also on tap is a high-octane version of the AC/DC concert staple "Whole Lotta Rosie" by RUFUS FONTAIN, featuring CINDERELLA guitarist Jeff LaBar and original JACKYL vocalist Ronnie Honeycutt. The POISON chart-topper "Unskinny Bop" is ably recreated by party rock outfit EVICK, featuring members of the Bret Michaels band. And the bass-heavy SPINAL TAP dirge "Big Bottom" is given a six-string revamp by TWISTED SISTER guitarist Eddie Ojeda and his BAND OF STEEL. Plus-sized songstress Celisa Stratton brings all-new meaning to the title track "Whole Lotta Love" by LED ZEPPELIN, in conjunction with veteran QUIET RIOT drummer Frankie Banali and guitarist Alex Grossi. Additionally, rock and roll comic C.C. Banana offers up a faithful rendition of the KISS track "Spit" (a.k.a. "Split"), featuring bassist David Z of ZO2 and guitarist Angus Clark. The album boasts an inspired cover by pop artist Les Toil, known for his bold and beautiful "big girl" pin-up art.
"Whole Lotta Love: An All-Star Salute To Fat Chicks" is scheduled for an August 31 release and is now available for pre-order directly from SplitScreen Entertainment. The first 500 pre-orders will receive a free instant digital download of "Fat Bottomed Girls" as well as a bonus mini-print of the cover art upon delivery of the album.
