Tomorrow, Bhi Bhiman releases covers album Substitute Preacher, his mostly-acoustic take on everyone from the Police to Dio. As these things often do, the project started with one song.

“The inspiration to do this covers record came from one song,” Bhiman wrote. “It was “Walk of Life”, by Dire Straits. I knew the song since being a kid, and I’ve always thought of it as Mark Knopfler’s nod to Chuck Berry’s ‘Johnny B. Goode.’ The song really rings true with me because, in a way, it’s my story too. So I started doing a live version, in a country blues style with the audience whistling along, and it became a highlight of my shows.”

For the video, Bhiman brought in old Buster Keaton footage, calling him the “greatest physical comedian of all time.” Listen to “Walk of Life” – and watch Keaton paddle a horse, scrub a lion, and fall down a lot – below.
