    The Afghan Whigs lost guitarist Dave Rosser to colon cancer almost exactly one month ago. Today, the alternative icons are paying tribute to their fallen bandmate with a cover of one of his favorite songs, Pleasure Club’s “You Want Love”.

    “Pleasure Club was a legendary New Orleans band and Dave Rosser and I had spoken for years about performing this song,” said Whigs frontman Greg Dulli.  “In light of his passing we decided to record it in his honor.”

    “You Want Love” originally comes from Pleasure Club’s 2004 album, their second and final full-length. The band’s original singer and songwriter, James Hall, returned to lend his voice to the tribute cover. Take a listen below, and download it for free over at the Afghan Whigs’ website.
