Pinball Machine Melodies: The Godfather Cover by Tremonti and Slash
Mark Tremonti, the powerhouse behind Alter Bridge, and Slash, the guitar virtuoso from Guns N’ Roses, have joined forces in an unforeseen musical alliance. The two have breathed new life into “Speak Softly Love,” a classic track from The Godfather soundtrack, with Tremonti taking the reins on lead vocals. Listen to the original song below:
Slash and Mark’s The Unusual Platform: Pinball Machine
In a twist that no one saw coming, this cover will debut not on a traditional music platform but on a pinball machine. This isn’t just any pinball machine, though. It’s a special edition released to commemorate the 50th anniversary of The Godfather, one of the most iconic films in cinema history. Listen to the preview of the new version.
Limited Edition Vinyl: Sold Out Instantly
Adding to the intrigue was a limited-edition release of the cover on a 7″ vinyl. Unsurprisingly, it sold out in the blink of an eye. It’s a testament to the enduring popularity of the musicians and The Godfather franchise.
The Question of the Hour
So, what would it be if you could have any pinball machine or arcade game in your home? Perhaps this Godfather-themed pinball machine with its unique soundtrack has piqued your interest.
The Godfather Pinball Machine
Oh, the Godfather Limited Edition Pinball Machine. A contraption that’s as flashy as it is pricey. For a cool $12,000, you can own this metallic black armor and legs adorned with high-quality gloss decals. It even features a ‘Furious Floyd’ Caporegime head because who doesn’t want a mobster’s head in their game room?
The machine is limited to 5,000 units, each with an individually numbered “Limited Edition” plaque. A clever marketing ploy to create a sense of scarcity and exclusivity.
The playfield is graced with an image of Michael Corleone, the reluctant mob boss from the iconic film. But the real selling point, apparently, is the performances by Slash and Mark Tremonti of ‘Speak Softly Love.’ Yes, that’s right. Your pinball machine now doubles as a music player. Steve Jobs really dropped the ball on this opportunity.
Godfather Pinball Features
The game features a moving, shooting, beat-em-up articulating Caporegime sculpted interactive toy, a player-controllable spinning disk take-down amplifier toy, and dual bi-directional shooting main steel ramps.
It also boasts a laser-etched & enameled steel cityscape upper loop ramp, a bi-directional ball travel lift ramp, and a 3-ball lock-up mechanism with direct feeds to all 3 flippers. The machine is practically bristling with features, like a Glory Bumper™ (let your mind wander) illuminable multi-material fountain sculpture and an active Newton-ball compound area.
And let’s not forget the Don Vito Corleone sculpted bust. Because nothing says “fun” like the stern face of a mob boss watching over your game.
So, if you’ve got a spare $12,000 lying around and a burning desire to own a pinball machine that doubles as a tribute to a 50-year-old movie, this might be the game for you. But remember, a $1,000 non-refundable deposit will be charged at the time of checkout. The remaining balance is charged when the game is shipped. So, think twice before you hit that ‘Order Now’ button.
