Godsmack‘s Live and Inspired two-disc set hits stores and digital retailers today. One is filled with highlights from a 2010 show in Detroit, the other with covers of tracks including Joe Walsh‘s “Rocky Mountain Way,” The Beatles‘ “Come Together,” Pink Floyd‘s “Time” and Metallica‘s “Nothing Else Matters.” Drummer Shannon Larkin says he was really up for covering “Rocky Mountain Way” because it was the first song he ever played in public.
