Imagination was given to man to compensate him for what he is not, and a sense of humor was provided to console him for what he is. - Oscar Wilde

2CELLOS is a pair of Croatian cellists Luka Šulić and Stjepan Hauser who have some serious classical training under their belts. Their collaborations are primarily rock song covers, but they certainly won’t be abandoning classical music. (at least I’m fairly sure that’s what the article says. the google translation is suspect but exceedingly entertaining nevertheless)
They recently played Smooth Criminal on the Ellen DeGeneres show (which put them squarely on the US radar) and are currently on tour with Sir Elton in Europe. Their debut album is due out towards the end of July. Welcome to the Jungle will be on it as well as covers of Nine Inch Nails, Nirvana, U2, and more.
