Actually, I like anything Linda Ronstadt covered better than the original.
David Allen Coe had the original Tennessee Whiskey recording, George Jones, and a host of others covered it, but Chris Stapleton made it his own.
So, I could probably really deliberate on this, and come up with a btter answer.
but the first one that just popped into my head was Velvet Revolver covering Angie by the Stones
this video blew me away in my teens. I know slash is a divisive player, but his playing here is really really good.
as a kid I didn't care about technical prowess, I didnt even know what pentatonic meant. I just remember seeing this as a green player and saying "that's how I want to play"
This version totally kills...
These guys do great covers!
Another F's & F's...
and Broken Peach
Late period Nina Simone killing it:
Excellent song IMO!
Excellent cover IMO!
re: Nina Simone (post #109) i did NOT see that coming! omg
A old buddy of mine (Christian Punk band “Children 18:3”) and his little sister. First time I ever heard this song. The original never cut it for me. Maybe because I kinda liked her back when lol.
but Mr. Joe Perry does a nice cover too
All Dylan covers by the Grateful Dead.
THIS version of Sara Barellies’ cover of Goodbye Yellow Brick Road. Sends shivers down my spine each and every time I watch/listen:
As does James Taylor’s (and perhaps more importantly, John Williams’) interpretation of Here Comes the Sun, featuring another one of my favorites, Chris Thile:
John Kay did a version of Hank Snow song I'm movin on.
This version inspired my band to cover the song.
I Put A Spell On You:
The original 1964 version by Dusty Springfield of I Only Want to Be With You is excellent:
The 1979 cover by the Tourists with a lead singer named Annie Lennox brought a different vibe, but is equally excellent:
AS MUCH AS...not more than:
...and nearly any number of early Stones covers.
The Rolling Stones were the greatest covers band of all time, IMO.
