Wow, I'm enjoying some great stuff on this thread. I was fortunate enough to see Stevie Ray Vaughn before he died. Jimi Hendrix was a little before my time and I was introduced to "Voodoo Chile" by Stevie Ray on his "Live Alive" album. Imagine sitting in the seventh row watching this man play guitar. I"ll never forget that night.

Was just in Chewelah WA last week for a client visit. Chewelah is the hometown of Allen Stone.

Here is a cover of "You and I", with the Seattle Rock Orchestra. This kid has pipes and stole your grandma's glasses.

Terrible cell phone recording or something but I can't find an official version so far. Best part starts about 3:45.

   I really enjoyed the Heart / Stairway to Heaven video that I watched on my laptop and heard from the  computer speaker.
    I was coming home today and heard this song in stereo for the  first time. I turned it up loud because wow! that was an ass kicking rendition of that song by the Wilson Sisters, Jason Bonham, the choir, the backup singers, and everyone in that video. That look on Paige  and Plant"s face when the big choir comes out was priceless. It must be pretty cool to watch someone else s interpretation of your work that is much different from the original, yet awesome enough to bring tears to your eyes

One thing I love about musicians is how so many of them don't believe in boundaries or categories.  They listen to music entirely different than what they perform (or maybe it's only different on the surface).  They respect musicians in other genres and other generations.  It makes what they do so much richer.  Some have musical backgrounds entirely different than what they perform--jazz musicians who started in classical music, rock singers who started in opera, etc.  I love that my daughter is listening to Tony Bennett because he recorded with Amy Winehouse.  Johnny Cash is a great example of all this.  Some move from one style to another even though they risk alienating their fans....

I remember when Bob Dylan went "electric", many of his hardcore fans thought that was one of the most sacrilegious things that any folk artist could do.  The world will come to an ugly end.
That was every early on during his long sucessful career.
One of the best concerts I ever went to, was Bob Dylan when we was touring with Tom Petty about 20 years ago, when the two of them shared the stage together, it was magic, and fully electric.

OK.  The first half should be in the WTFAYLT thread.  Emphasis on the F cuz its weird.  But at 6 something it gets very Peter Gabriel-ish.  At 7:30 or so there is a real treat for Joy Division fans.

At 12 something minutes long it is a millennium of internet attention-span, but put it on and go do something else.  That is if you can handle the Brony first part and like Peter Gabriel and die for Joy Division. 

Careful or you will be singing this tune for weeks.  Just try explaining it to your colleagues and family. 

This was payback from my kids for raising them on anything but top 40.

One of the most covered songs ever is Heartbreak Hotel. there's lots to choose from, but here's Frigid Pink's version. A mediocre band from the 70's that did a decent job with Elvis.

Great interview here:
http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/is-sturgill-simpson-country-musics-savior-not-if-he-can-help-it-20140603

Not a cover per se... because, it was one of Gregg Allman's biggest hits......but, he brings in a couple of my favs for "Midnight Rider"...Zac Brown, who I've met a couple of times and gave him a Hawaiian fish hook... and, Vince Gill really light this song up...do yourself a favor if you like good music and pick this CD/DVD up...

http://www.amazon.com/All-My-Friends-Celebrating-Allman/dp/B00IK7NC9G

On January 10, 2014, a multi-generational assortment of musicians from the worlds of rock, blues and country joined together at Atlanta's historic Fox Theatre for a once-in-a-lifetime all-star performance to pay tribute to the life and music of the legendary singer/musician/songwriter Gregg Allman.
"Midnight Rider" featuring Vince Gill, Gregg Allman, and Zac Brown, from  "All My Friends - Celebrating The Songs And Voice of Gregg Allman" Blu-Ray/DVD/CD  from Rounder Records.

For something completely different...wifey had Adele on the playlist for a recent vacation...some good tunes that worked when they were on...especially, "Rolling in the Deep"...turns out over 519 million views on You Tube...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rYEDA3JcQqw

Then along comes 10 year old Angie Vazquez out of Mexicali with this cover of it...133 million views and counting...she also covers "Let it Be" and "Time After Time"..."Blowing in the Wind"...etc...

Listening to a pretty damn good local band across the canyon play Cream's  "Sunshine of your Love" right now...
Recently saw a special on Hall & Oates after their induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame...missed the whole pop music thing while in college...so, I dug a little more and uncovered this gem...

Multi-platinum Matchbox Twenty vocalist Rob Thomas joins Daryl Hall for a special pairing of two of pop-rock's leading singer/songwriters on the 31st and latest installment of Live From Daryl's House. The two join together on a soulful version of the classic, "I Heard It Through the Grapevine."

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DV_nGyjwISk

"Past episodes of Live from Daryl’s House have featured a mix of well-known performers like Train, Rob Thomas, Smokey Robinson, The Doors’ Robby Krieger and Ray Manzarek, Nick Lowe, K.T. Tunstall, Todd Rundgren, Gym Class Heroes’ Travis McCoy, Fall Out Boy’s Patrick Stump, Finger Eleven’s James Black and Rick Jackett, the Bacon Brothers and country star Jimmy Wayne, along with newcomers such as Philly soul singer Mutlu, Canadian techno-rockers Chromeo, pop-rock phenom Eric Hutchinson, Cash Money rocker Kevin Rudolf, Wind-up Records’ Chicago rockers Company of Thieves, Bay Area singer/songwriter Matt Nathanson, Charlottesville, VA’s rising Parachute, Plain White T’s, Fitz and the Tantrums, Diane Birch and Sharon Jones and The Dap Kings.

Daryl started the free monthly web show in late 2007 after having the idea of “playing with my friends and putting it up on the Internet,” and the show has since garnered acclaim from Rolling Stone, SPIN, Daily Variety, CNN, BBC, Yahoo! Music and influential blogger Bob Lefsetz, who have cited Live From Daryl’s House as a perfect example of a veteran artist reinventing himself in the digital age by collaborating with both established colleagues and newer performers."

Aloha Greg,
Believe me...I know...a couple of our younger staff members were there and shot me some vid...
My ticket connection said that the prices in the first couple of rows doubled immediately after going on sale...then further climbed...so, after seeing them a couple of times up front and partying with them back stage, we had to take a pass because of what we had paid already to take our shop manager and his wifey to Monday's FGL show there...and, another killer...but, super spendy show that we're going to in October...

I took this ZBB vid 4 years ago...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ruMkL8AJQDk

Siblings...father is a music producer...they are good...cool to see her brother guitar/piano wearing a Miles Davis tshirt in the Let it Be vid clip below...they were signed to Sony...I think that they are trying to slow things down and refine their act before they bust it loose...they are young and have time...;-)

Yoko Ono has also noticed...
"After turning down Yoko Ono's offer to cover Imagine, the Mexican band decided on Let It Be. The Vazquez Sounds give a great rendition to this classic from The Beatles. Watch the music video after the jump.
Vazquez Sounds are an internet phenomenon that came to the scene when they uploaded to YouTube a Rolling In The Deep cover. Since then, they have covered songs like Forget You and All I Want For Christmas Is You.
Yoko Ono took notice of these kids and invited them to participate in her Non-Violence foundation and sing Imagine.

They opted not to make a new version of that song because the lyrics include, "Imagine there's no heaven," which goes against their religion.
It looks like they settled on covering another song though and that is how Let It Be came to fruition.
Take a look at the complete music clip below and watching Yoko Ono make an appearance at the end to promote her foundation."

Not a cover...but, Pink Floyd is releasing their 1st new record in 20 years...cool cover...

After months of rumors, Pink Floyd have finally announced the details of their new album The Endless River, which hits shelves on November 10th. It's the group’s first new release since 1994’s The Division Bell. According to a press release, The Endless River is a “four-sided instrumental album,” though one track, “Louder Than Words,” has lyrics by David Gilmour’s wife Polly Samson. It was produced by Gilmour, Phil Manzanera, Youth and Andy Jackson

One time Santa Barbara resident, Joe Cocker, died a couple of days ago...December 22, 2014...

"In 1978, Cocker moved onto a ranch Jane Fonda owned in Santa Barbara, California. Pam Baker, a local summer camp director and fan of Cocker's music, persuaded the actress to lend the house to Cocker. Baker began dating Cocker, and they married on 11 October 1987."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joe_Cocker

Folks...I'm here to tell you that he arguably performed more "hit it out of the ballpark" cover songs than anyone on the planet...totally made the songs his...

Definitely not a pretty boy rock star...had his substance abuse issues...like many of his Woodstock compadres...but, he survived unlike many of his peers...

This almost 2 hour concert from last year is EPIC!
Enjoy...this is a high quality production...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Lwg0ZlPTJA

From the Beatles' "With A Little Help From My Friends"..."She Came In Through The Bathroom Window"...to the Box Tops' 1967 hit "The Letter"...Dave Mason's "Feelin' Alright"...his duet with Jennifer Warnes, "Up Where We Belong" - from An Officer And A Gentleman - hit number one and went on to win both a Grammy and an Academy Award in 1983. Joe Cocker was ranked number 97 on Rolling Stone's 100 greatest singers list...

http://thinkprogress.org/culture/2014/12/24/3606829/why-shouldnt-a-white-guy-sing-the-blues-joe-cocker/

Joe Cocker released 40 albums in his 50 year career. For more information regarding his career please go to www.cocker.com.

Joe enjoyed long walks in the mountains with his dogs, fly fishing in the Black Canyon, playing snooker with friends and growing tomatoes in his greenhouse year-round.

Joe Cocker is survived by his wife, Pam, of Crawford; his brother Victor Cocker of Norfolk, England; his step daughter, Zoey Schroeder of Stevenson Ranch, CA and two grandchildren, Eva & Simon Schroeder.

Beasties & Costello

Under strict orders from Columbia Records and Lorne Michaels not to play his anti-media hit Radio Radio, Elvis Costello began to play Less Than Zero. After a few seconds he changed his mind, apologized to the audience, and quickly directed his band to go ahead with Radio Radio anyway.  An incensed Lorne Michaels banned Costello from the show, but as years past, he began to embrace the significance of it and approved a tribute during the show’s 25th anniversary in which Costello came out to interrupt the Beastie Boys starting into Sabotage to re-enact his legendary 1977 appearance.

Okay, so I'm driving in my van and that song comes on again, a song I've always liked but always had no idea what the hell it was about, as well as being totally unsure about some certain lyrics, and I know I'm not alone on that.  Is he singing what I think he's singing?
Besides, it's a cover of a Bruce Springsteen song that was on his first album, but this cover by Manfred Mann made it to #1 on the pop charts.
So here, now you'll know what the lyrics are, but I still have no idea if it's really supposed to be about anything.

It's a car, not a douche, if that's what you're getting at.  There are whole essays on those lyrics and what they mean if you google the song.  They're pretty bizarre.  "Smoke on the Water" is another with a whole story behind it.

Also, Jimi Hendrix wasn't singing "Excuse me while I kiss this guy".

There's a word for those misheard lyrics--"mondegreens"--named after Lady Mondegreen, who didn't exist.  She appeared in a 17th century ballad called "The Bonnie Earl o'Moray:

Ye Highlands and ye Lowlands,
Oh, where hae ye been?
They hae slain the Earl o'Moray,
and Lady Mondegreen.

The only problem was that the actual last line was, "And laid him on the green".  But people misunderstood, and ever since then people have wondered who Lady Mondegreen was.  Don't ask me how I know all this.

As I was reading the verse, "Ye highlands........"  I was wondering.......how the heck does he know this. Pretty cool.
I read somewhere years ago Bob Dylan heard "I want to hold your hand" and thought instead of the harmonies saying...."I get by" that it said "I get high" and told this to the fab four when he met them thus turning them on to their first foray into all that stuff. Not sure if that is even remotely true but I do remember reading or hearing that somewhere.

Ok Double or nothing, extra points for being a "new" Dylan song. (that happens to be over 30 years old)

"Neighborhood Bully"


Well, the neighborhood bully, he's just one man
 His enemies say he's on their land
 They got him outnumbered about a million to one
 He got no place to escape to, no place to run
 He's the neighborhood bully.

 The neighborhood bully he just lives to survive
 He's criticized and condemned for being alive
 He's not supposed to fight back, he's supposed to have thick skin
 He's supposed to lay down and die when his door is kicked in
 He's the neighborhood bully.

 The neighborhood bully been driven out of every land
 He's wandered the earth an exiled man
 Seen his family scattered, his people hounded and torn
 He's always on trial for just being born
 He's the neighborhood bully.

 Well, he knocked out a lynch mob, he was criticized
 Old women condemned him, said he could apologize
 Then he destroyed a bomb factory, nobody was glad
 The bombs were meant for him. He was supposed to feel bad
 He's the neighborhood bully.

 Well, the chances are against it, and the odds are slim
 That he'll live by the rules that the world makes for him
 'Cause there's a noose at his neck and a gun at his back
 And a licence to kill him is given out to every maniac
 He's the neighborhood bully.

 Well, he got no allies to really speak of
 What he gets he must pay for, he don't get it out of love
 He buys obsolete weapons and he won't be denied
 But no one sends flesh and blood to fight by his side
 He's the neighborhood bully.

 Well, he's surrounded by pacifists who all want peace
 They pray for it nightly that the bloodshed must cease
 Now, they wouldn't hurt a fly. To hurt one they would weep
 They lay and they wait for this bully to fall asleep
 He's the neighborhood bully.
 Every empire that's enslaved him is gone
 Egypt and Rome, even the great Babylon
 He's made a garden of paradise in the desert sand
 In bed with nobody, under no one's command
 He's the neighborhood bully.

 Now his holiest books have been trampled upon
 No contract that he signed was worth that what it was written on
 He took the crumbs of the world and he turned it into wealth
 Took sickness and disease and he turned it into health
 He's the neighborhood bully.

 What's anybody indebted to him for ?
 Nothing, they say. He just likes to cause war
 Pride and prejudice and superstition indeed
 They wait for this bully like a dog waits to feed
 He's the neighborhood bully.

 What has he done to wear so many scars ?
 Does he change the course of rivers ? Does he pollute the moon and stars ?
 Neighborhood bully, standing on the hill
 Running out the clock, time standing still
 Neighborhood bully.

btw saw johnny winter, and edgar winter's white trash, along with bb and albert king--third to last fillmore east show--i was 12 or 13--went with my cousin--my parents flipped!

"look ma (i'm only bleeding)" is prolly my favorite dylan song.

Bully is interesting--Dylan took a counterintuitive view of many issues--like "only a pawn in their game" performed at MLK's "I have a dream" rally--where, of all things, dylan empathises with medgar evers' murderer--powerful shit--powerful times--joan baez, 22 at the time performed also:

A bullet from the back of a bush took Medgar Evers’ blood
A finger fired the trigger to his name
A handle hid out in the dark
A hand set the spark
Two eyes took the aim
Behind a man’s brain
But he can’t be blamed
He’s only a pawn in their game

A South politician preaches to the poor white man
“You got more than the blacks, don’t complain.
You’re better than them, you been born with white skin,” they explain.
And the Negro’s name
Is used it is plain
For the politician’s gain
As he rises to fame
And the poor white remains
On the caboose of the train
But it ain’t him to blame
He’s only a pawn in their game

The deputy sheriffs, the soldiers, the governors get paid
And the marshals and cops get the same
But the poor white man’s used in the hands of them all like a tool
He’s taught in his school
From the start by the rule
That the laws are with him
To protect his white skin
To keep up his hate
So he never thinks straight
’Bout the shape that he’s in
But it ain’t him to blame
He’s only a pawn in their game

From the poverty shacks, he looks from the cracks to the tracks
And the hoofbeats pound in his brain
And he’s taught how to walk in a pack
Shoot in the back
With his fist in a clinch
To hang and to lynch
To hide ’neath the hood
To kill with no pain
Like a dog on a chain
He ain’t got no name
But it ain’t him to blame
He’s only a pawn in their game.

Today, Medgar Evers was buried from the bullet he caught
They lowered him down as a king
But when the shadowy sun sets on the one
That fired the gun
He’ll see by his grave
On the stone that remains
Carved next to his name
His epitaph plain:
Only a pawn in their game

That's one of the best in my book,  hard to nail down a fav.  Depends on "which way the wind blows".

Wow, that sounds like an epic show. Albert King such a bad ass I got to see Jonny Winter at "My Fathers Place" in Roslyn.  Funny I went and saw Traffic at the Nassau Coliseum with a catholic youth group when I was 13.  They did one of there legendary long sets and we got home at 2 am.  Same deal, parents , bonkers.  Almost pulled off sneaking up to Woodstock at 10 in the back of my older sisters car. That would have been almost as cool as hanging at the dog bowl.

Hendrix All Along the Watch Tower.. come on.

Okay, I kind of forgot that, though Dylans version is about the poetry and Hendrix version is about the music.

My favorite is Mr. Tambourine Man. When I was a kid people would say "Why do you listen to that, the guy can't even sing." And I'd wonder WTF was WRONG with their shriveled up little souls. I heard Mr. tambourine man done as elevator music, and it screwed me up for months. I kept hearing it. It was torture.

Well, looking for some elevator music that would stick with us for months this is what I found.
If Marky is there does it count as a cover?
Less than two minutes, but if you want to be singing it tomorrow right off the bat...........about :35.

no woodstock for me, tho i was aware, spending summers nearby in millbrook, ny--the millbrook where leary and 5000 disciples set up shop for a few years on the huge mellon family estate there

cream traffic blind faith--very nice vein

played blues harp/sang in a band in HS back then--dear mr fantasy was one of our regular covers--also, of course, jumpin jack flash!

non-sequitur: read "Barbarian Days--A Surfing Life" by William Finnegan--excellent book by a writer i have read for years, but had no idea surfed--and really surfed--sent a copy to creek--he prolly shared waves with finnegan--tho likely not the drugs! seems creek dodged those bullets--or he's a warrior who won't speak of trench trauma!

forecasts for weekend are not encouraging--desperate, i will paddle for ankle-biters even

Otis Rush - I Can't Quit You Baby - Led Zep; Summertime - Janis; Robert Johnson - Crossroads- Cream; everybody stole from everybody. Played in bands until I was 50. Did the Bill Wyman, except I didn't marry a 15 year old.

My last gig was in a biker bar in Grafton. We were "asked" to play Stones tunes between the second and third sets to accompany a tattoo contest where some very large and very larger biker dudes and babes displayed their ink.

Got home at 3 am and took three days to clear the second hand smoke from my scrawny frame. The c note wasn't enough. No mas.

Played at a festival in Vermont for a few thousand very stoned hippies; we were all tripping. Jammed with a couple of the Allman's; was the token white cat in a black R & B band. Fun.. 8)  8)

Geez, Allston. Talk about parallel tracks. Lived at 16 Allston Street, Allston until I joined the navy--the house my dad was born in. I played guitar, but never well. Motorcycles and mountain bikes of course--still do. Most of my injuries are from Hockey--of the rollerblade flavor. I didn't play much on the east coast, but I learned to skate there. Big difference is that I think I make about one and a half of you, and Bob is an even two.

Crap sound quality, but the amazing Amy Winehouse. I loved that lady. Could make bubblegum pop sound serious and soulful.

Figure I should actually add something. I had the pleasure of viewing this live last month with my wife. My favorite band as a kid/teen (Pink Floyd, well Roger Waters) playing with my favorite band since 2000 (My Morning Jacket) covering my favorite Dylan tune (Forever young) at the venue where Dylan "went electric"! Video is a bit rough but it was an epic 1 hour 20 min set.

That's true, but they do them very entertainingly :)

The Detroit Cobras on the other hand also do nothing but covers but make a point only to do covers of songs that were not really well known in their time, and do that very well.

Disclaimer, I'm a fan of "The Voice", okay, I said it.  This season has been another good one, a guy named Jordan will win, it's a lock.
My favorite however didn't make it into the final 4, but close, her name is Amy.  A few weeks ago she made me a fan when she covered a song that I always thought was just another corny boy band song that I never liked, "Bye, bye, bye" by NSYNC, you know, Justin Timberlake's band, yuck.
But she flipped it, sang it to a rock-steady beat, almost Reggae, loved it!  I was sorry to see her go.

Love for Levon (Helm)...I liked it so much that I bought the blue ray disc...

This is a labor of love, rooted in the songs and spirit of Levon Helm. Highly recommended for fans of "real" American music.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZxkCYwVDMpQ

Dozens of luminaries from rock, soul and country gathered at the Meadowlands Arena on October 3, 2012, for an incredible tribute to Levon Helm, The Band s late drummer/singer/mandolin player (who passed away in early 2012). The concert, directed by bassist Don Was, was an opportunity to say a final farewell and, in the process, raise money for the ongoing Midnight Ramble series of concerts still held at The Barn, Helm s famous home-studio in Woodstock, New York. One at a time or, sometimes, in pairs, rock-royalty took turns in the spotlight over the course of the evening, singing songs associated with Levon Helm and The Band including "Up On Crippled Creek," "The Shape I m In," "Life is a Carnival," "Ophelia," "The Weight," "Rag Mamma Rag," "I Ain t Got No Home," and "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down."

1."The Shape I'm In"
feat. Warren Haynes
2."Long Black Veil"
feat. Greg Allman and Warren Haynes
3."Trouble in Mind"
feat. Jorma Kaukonen and Barry Mitterhoff
4."This Wheel's on Fire"
5."Little Birds"
feat. Garth Hudson
6."Listening to Levon"
feat. Marc Cohn
7."Move Along Train"
feat. Mavis Staples
8."Life is a Carnival"
feat. Allen Toussaint and Jai Johanny Johanson
9."When I Paint My Masterpiece"
feat. Garth Hudson and John Prine
10."Anna Lee"
feat Bruce Hornsby
11."Ain't Got No Home"
feat. Jakob Dylan and Rami Jaffee
12."Whispering Pines"

SUPsports that's a fine album.

Just getting home from an epic SUP surfing and camping trip to learn of Gregg Allman's passing...what a buzzkill...
He wasn't an angel...and, said so...R.I.P.

Saw him solo...and, with the Allman Brothers Band several times...even worked with their lighting guy back in the college days at an outdoor concert they performed in the Redwoods...

To quote Billboard:

Gregg Allman, who died yesterday (May 27) at the age of 69, was one of the greatest blues-rock singers of his generation, and maybe the greatest white blues singer of all time.

Here's a few of the great blues songs they covered...

One of my favorite country acts performing "Midnight Rider"...

If you are a fan...you owe it to yourself to pick up this DVD/CD combo...very entertaining...

Mayer has been mentioned a few times here but is worth doing again. If your experience with John Mayer is his early 2000's top 40 bubble gum hits like "Your Body is a Wonderland" and you are not familiar with his more recent blues-based work, you are in for a treat. He is one of the best modern blues guitarists we have right now, outrageously talented guitarist.

John Mayer gets a bad rap for some past indiscretions and unappetizing pop songs.

But for those wiling to journey past the veil just a little bit the guy is an amazing artist.

I am a bit biased tho as he has helped to revitalize most of the surviving members of my favorite band of all time (the Grateful Dead) to present as Dead & Company.

Today I hop on Summer Tour with my friends: Fenway>Fenway>SPAC>Citifield>Camden

I will be forever grateful to one John Mayer who has set his ego aside, is learning from his elders and letting the music play the band!

There is a group named, TV On The Radio. They wrote a song named, Wolf Like Me and sing it. I never liked this song because even though they wrote it, I think it is better sung by a woman named Lera Lynn. And in this cover version, her fellow musician is playing a banjo which gives this song a little bluegrass flavor.

Night Wing,

These guys are great! I'd never heard of them. I'm a big 60's music fan and really enjoyed hearing these guys. I googled them and found a number of other songs of theirs (all Beach Boys covers) and then forwarded that onto a buddy of mine, who is also a 60's music fan. He quite rightly pointed out to me how many of them it took to re-create what the Beach Boys did. Still, very enjoyable. Thanks.

I have been a Tom Petty fan for 4 decades...this cover of "I Won't Back Down" has taken on greater significance for my wifey and I, after being in attendance at the Route 91 music festival in Las Vegas a couple of weeks ago as Jason Aldean was closing it out when the shooting started...and, then learning of the passing of TP as we were driving home...we're still processing...but, like others have said...music has the power to heal...

We've seen all of these artists...some more than once...Jason Aldean, Keith Urban, Chris Stapleton, & Little Big Town perform separately...we're big live music fans...but, awesome to see them all come together last night in Nashville giving Jason Aldean a lift back up on the musical horse...

Great tribute to Tom Petty...R.I.P.

This one is a bit off-topic of cover songs.  I hope y'all are OK with me posting this here.

Yesterday Gord Downie passed away after a 2-year battle with an aggressive brain cancer. If you've heard Canadians talk about Gord Downie and the Tragically Hip, you might have wondered what all the fuss was about. Here's what the New York Times had say:

The place of honor that Mr. Downie occupies in Canada's national imagination has no parallel in the United States. Imagine Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan and Michael Stipe combined into one sensitive, oblique poet-philosopher, and you're getting close.

Here's a clip of the band after they had asserted themselves as the top band in the country in the mid-90s. They kept producing music right through to 2016 and released their final album after Gord Downie's terminal diagnosis. Over half the country tuned in for their final show which was broadcast coast to coast on the national TV station. He meant a lot to us.

Aloha eastbound,
Thanks for the note...Deb and myself are big time into live music...of all genres...it's been part of the glue that's held our relationship together over the decades...
We were at a number of the same concerts growing up...before we met each other...
We both worked concerts in college after we hooked up...I worked with lighting...Deb was chosen by Carlos Santana to keep the "evil spirits" away from his guitars...
I had to have a chat once with Eddie Money after he tried to heavily pick up on her at his show...he told her something about having "two tickets to paradise"...;-)

We celebrated our 30th anniversary by seeing U2 twice when they played in LA...etc...

Back to Vegas...our first visit, BTW...things were going great for 3 days until they weren't...we had great music...beautiful weather...beautiful people...great food...good times...etc...
Then the clock rolled up to 10:00 PM on Sunday night and all hell broke loose...
It was very scary...beyond actually, because the terror didn't stop once we were out of the event site...we experienced bomb threats and multiple reports of shooters inside the hotel into the night...lots of uncertainty...

We ended up sheltering in place with 15 other people that we didn't know in a hotel room (Excalibur) away from ours (Luxor) because it was on lockdown...a guy named Ralph offered it up and we ran like hell as a group to get inside there...lights out...curtains drawn...everyone down on the floor...there was a pregnant woman that had a panic attack...a veteran with multiple tours to Iraq and Afghanistan that snored the whole time...etc...surreal...still is...

Hey Warren,

Were you in the crowd during the shooting?

Aloha Randy,
Affirmative...my camera recorded this as we were running for our lives...after having the time of our lives...covered with blood splatters...Deb had it all down her face and in her hair...
The shoulder and back of my shirt had enough on it that a medic stopped us and assessed me for shrapnel...a mysterious wound on my leg had to be X-rayed...

https://youtu.be/q5ORKnqd6bc

We were standing to the left of the sound engineer booth (1st pic) while Jason Aldean played "Any Ol' Barstool" when we heard the first shots...you can see the Mandalay in the background...so, we were in the line of fire...we actually had been closer to the stage earlier and had moved back a bit...a woman near us was hit and screamed "I'm gonna die!"...we think that's where the blood we were splattered with came from...I heard the bullet whiz by...I heard the thud...

https://youtu.be/eES9hFvayUs

The main reason that Deb and I went to this concert festival in Las Vegas...a place that we have never been other than driving past on the way to Utah...was to see Eric Church...CHIEF...

His performance on the first night of the festival was EPIC!!!...his last concert of the year...they played their hearts out...48 hours before the carnage started...
We were very close to the stage...the area where a large portion of the fatal shots landed...

https://youtu.be/ODcWrFNkGoI

So, the ultimate cover song of the 3 day festival ended up being "God Bless America" by Big & Rich...
I recorded this 3 hours before the shooting began...we moved a bit closer for Jake Owen...who was on right before Aldean...then, went to the other stage to catch a bit of Luke Combs...prolly saved our lives...then, we made our way back towards the main stage for the grand finale...

What doesn't kill you makes you stronger...

Mahalos guys for the kind thoughts...

My trademarked mantra "Stoked For Life" has never rung more true to Deb and myself...especially, after this unfathomable act of evil of being stocked from a sniper's lair to increase the statistical body count of prey for days before he finally gathered the gumption to proceed with this meticulously planned slaughter of innocent human beings without fear of being wrestled to the ground by the concert goers in the darkness of night...

What's next? bio-weapons...drones and dirty bombs at the World Series?!?!
There has already been movies made about this kind of incarnate evil...but, there is always a motive to satisfy the movie plot...so far, that's not the case in this event...which just brings the whacked conspiracy theorists out of the woodwork...it's hard to believe the comments that I've had to delete off of my You Tube clips and have read on others...actually, it's downright sickening...whether Russian bots or actual humans, the venom is bitter...
 
Believe me...even though ya'll weren't in attendance...your life as you knew it has changed also...just as it did for us all after 9/11...humanity has been permanently harmed again...

I have a high level of situational awareness that has served me well throughout my life...problem solving and trouble shooting come natural...MacGyver has inspired me through some sticky and difficult situations...etc...

In fact, I could write dozens of stories about dodging metaphorical bullets from our travels over the decades deep in the Baja to deep in jungles and remote beaches of mainland Mexico...as well as a few other places in the world we have traveled when there was an element of surprise that sent adrenaline racing...but, nothing really prepares you for literally dodging hundreds of rounds being fired over your head from an unknown source...

Every single decision that you made was literally life and death...total uncertainty cloaked every path forward with doubt and fear...fast spreading rumors of bombs...multiple shooters in tactical gear...etc...

This wasn't supposed to happen...an NBA playoff sized group of people peacefully assembled together to enjoy 3 days of top shelf country music at an outdoor venue...being shot at like fish in a bowl...as the festival was into the final act of the...up until that point...beautiful evening...

So ironic that as concert goers we went through extra security screening...we even had the TSA wrist bands after being finger printed and passing background checks...a new feature at concerts and sport events for faster entry and shorter lines...

Back to situational awareness...we made sure that we got solid sleep in...and, even though it is fashionable to wear jeans and boots to country concerts...we wore shorts and running shoes, despite the fact that we both have some pretty nice Ropers...mostly because we got a lot of walking in...big city blocks...we had 25 miles in by the time the 3rd day of the festival started...even still...it's hard to sprint while in a crouched position holding hands...ducking behind the nearest possible shield after every magazine unload...

We were lucky...very lucky...wasn't our time to go...but, who knew that you had best leave lots of gas in the tank for what was to come as the clock ticked towards 10 PM...fortunately for us some big hombres had just knocked down a fence to create a new exit...which sped up our escape out of the concert venue...also, we bonded with a great group of strangers that included a couple of dudes with military backgrounds...strength in numbers we all thought...

In our group of 15 there were lots of folks who were suffering blisters and their boots slowed them down on escape...as well as 3 days and nights of partying...lack of sleep...separation from friends and family...one gal was 7 months pregnant suffering a panic attack...lost cell phones...etc...but, we all pulled together sharing individual skill sets and being united to confront whatever problem or potential enemy we faced...making sure that everyone made it to Ralph's room safely...or, what we hoped and prayed was safety...

Be kind...and, stay stoked for life...

I'm pretty sure everyone has heard of the Dire Straits band. One of the songs they're best noted for was "Sultans of Swing". There is a little known band named, "The Pelicans" and below is their live cover song for Sultans of Swing. Hope you enjoy it.

@ addapost

I know this topic thread is for cover songs and I've found many people who've done the cover for the "Song of the Golden Dragon" by Estas Tonne, but they are no way near as good as him since this song is not easy to play. In other words; "close, but no cigar". Estas Tonne wrote the song of the Golden Dragon and he plays an acoustic guitar without a pick. So this song won't be a cover. It will be from the master himself.

Pay special attention to the length of his fingernails at the end of his fingers on his right hand and I think you'll enjoy it when Estas "gets after it without a pick".

First, a little background of what I like in music. I enjoy a varied mix of different music styles. From rock, southern rock, pop, blues, jazz, country, swing, big band, a little bit of metal, etc.

Lana del Ray is an american solo singer who grew up in Lake Placid, New York. One of her big song hits was "Summertime Sadness".

In Europe, there are a lot of good music groups. One of them is a dutch (Netherlands) group, Within Temptation with it's lead female singer, Sharon den Adel. Sharon's native language is Dutch, but she is fluent in English.

The Within Temptation band has been described as a gothic or metal type music group, but I classify this group as "symphonic". Below is a video of Sharon and WT, doing their cover rendition of Summertime Sadness and also the photos of both Sharon; the first photo and then photos of Lana. And Sharon nails this song with her great voice. And in my opinion, I think this cover rendition by Sharon and WT is better than the original by Lana. If you want to compare the two singers with this song, you'll have to look it up on YouTube.

Sharon den Adel & Within Temptation  - "Summertime Sadness".

The song below, "Because The Night", was originally performed by the Patti Smith Group. The song was composed by Patti Smith and Bruce Springsteen. A cover song was done later on by the band, 10000 Maniacs with Natalie Merchant and later with Mary Ramsey after Natalie Merchant left the band.

This is a good cover performed by the band, The Classic Rock Show in a live concert performance.

There is a blues singer, writer named Joe Bonamassa who started out as a 13 year old. He was so good with playing all types of guitars (acoustic, electric, slide) that he eventually caught the eye of the late BB King. Joe even played with BB and covered a lot of BB's songs when he was growing up. Joe is my favorite blues singer.

Below is not a cover song. It is a one of his original songs he wrote. In the video below, this is a few recording sessions spliced into one to make the video. It had to be done this way since Joe plays three different guitars in this video. BTW, this song is a "blues ballad".

Even though this is not a cover song, I hope you enjoy it. View it full screen mode.

Joe Bonamassa - "The Ghost of Macon Jones".

We saw Joe Bonamassa in concert two nights ago. Is the third time we’ve been to see him. He is a phenomenal guitarist and puts on a great live show. While onstage Joe told the audience that this was his last show of the year, and this was their 111th show this year. So really, since we saw him on December 1st, that’ 111 shows in 11 months. That’s a pretty heavy touring schedule.

Wow! No cover song since December 29th, 2018! Well, that is way too long. I might as well get the first cover for 2019.

Back in the late 60's, a band came together and called themselves,"Chicago". Actually, they first called themselves, "Chicago Transit Authority" and later shortened it to "Chicago". Chicago's lead singer was Peter Cetera who later went solo.

They had many hit songs. One of them was "25 To 6 Or 4". Below is a russian group who made a cover song and this is one of the best renditions I've ever heard for this song and it is a studio rendition. The russian group calls themselves, "Leonid & Friends".

Now to the song.

I was at the ELO concert in Vancouver a couple of nights ago. Great, great show. They put on an amazing performance. They did one song for an encore which was “Roll Over Beethoven”. I’ve always liked their version of this Chuck Berry classic, but this live performance was outstanding. While this isn't my recording, it is from the same show I was at.

I really enjoyed that as well.  She is amazing.  It takes a lot of bravery to cover that song.  I am pretty sure that Knopfler's guitar thanks him when he sets it down (and possibly asks for a cigarette).  Holy shit that guy's right hand.
