Former Guns N’ Roses and Velvet Revolver drummer Matt Sorum plays on a new charity cover of the Tom Petty classic “I Won’t Back Down.”

The recording also features Eagles members Joe Walsh and Timothy B. Schmit and country star Blake Shelton, and supports the organization Miraculous Love Kids, which provides music lessons to young women in Afghanistan.

“In ‘I Won’t Back Down,’ Tom Petty so powerfully wrote, ‘You can stand me up at the gates of hell, but I won’t back down,'” says Miraculous Love Kids founder Lanny Cordola. “The girls and I are honored to have Blake, Joe, Timothy and Matt join us in spreading this message far and wide.”

You can listen to the cover now via GoodNoise.io, which describes itself as “a metaverse destination for people who are passionate about music, the arts and good causes.”
