Agreed. But it's the only one that works.
And how many Dylan songs does it work with besides AATW?
Even The Police played their songs differently live. Sting took some Police songs and changed them to the point of being almost unrecognizable when he started out his solo career.
I'm not surrendering yet, but you're making some good points.
Stevie Wonder's Cover of We Can Work it Out is pretty damn transcending as well.
I gotta pretend to work for a bit but a bunch from the band and the byrds alone.
We did a couple Rush tunes in the band i was in many years ago. Our drummer was a huge Peart fan and could pull it off and had a huge kit so me and the bass player were in our glory. I think he got a little tired of us wanting to play Rush tunes though.
That's not an easy band to cover if you don't have the vocals and drums accounted for. We did the instrumentals for the latter reason
Not one on the scale of your analogy though. That is the problem, Cocker and Hendrix pull off two of the biggest covers of all time, in fact Hendrix' AATW might be the best rock cover EVER. So if you hold the covers of Beatles music to that standard you have to hold all others, and there are precious few who make the cut.
I'm not in a band
One that might be difficult
Cover a cover
So to speak...
I'm gonna say Testament. Right @Mouse ?
Never heard a good GnR cover, even with GnR members involved. These songs don't sound right without Axl.
Police covers also sound wrong to me.
these guys did a pretty good job. sure, they used some kind of vocal processing, but knowing how to use it is hard to do, imo.
Having challenged myself (and failing) to learn the guitar parts of Hotel California in 2 days, I would say The Eagles!
Yeah, it'll be sometime between now and never (closer to never) before I can take on a Skolnick solo.
There's something about Felder's guitar style (and Walsh's for that matter) this is just hard for me to grasp. When I listen, it doesn't sound hard or complicated. I try to play it and I feel like I'm new to guitar!! I tried real hard on the intro for Already Gone and threw my hands up...when in doubt, leave it out!! .
One day I may revisit HC...maybe I'll surprise myself.
The subtlety is in the bends I think. And of course only learning 1/2 the solo each!!
The Pixies are pretty hard to cover...
Sonic Youth, Patti Smith... never heard a good P Funk cover, or Labelle
Sly and the Family Stone - can't think of a good cover...
Agreed. Between the orchestration and the vocals...pretty tough act to follow.
Gov't Mule They do great (imho) covers on every album...my favorite is Dose.
Joe Cocker did a great cover of the Beatles' Help From My Friends (title?).
A great cover is one that has the listener wondering if they've heard the song before and then finally the recognition comes.
Stevie completely revamped We Can Work It Out, so what are you looking for? Improvement on the Beatles?
