You have NO idea how much GNR meant to 70's folks. GNR gave us back rock and roll. The 80's were full of crap, blues and metal.

I was speaking with a family friend that likes to tell me problems and I asked him if he knew wjphat this cover by David Bowie... even means?

I didn't cry over the mans passing until a couple or so years later, while working in a bakery
He spirit is Wild and free now from public annoyance.
I'll try to find a great cover, I believe he and David Bowie are going to be friends on the flip side of the veil... this cover is great!

Several artists have made a cover of The Yardbirds' "Shapes of Things". IMHO, the best version is by Nazareth.

Sound of Silence. This one surprised me. The original is a classic. But being a metalhead this new version is better. Well produced:

Simon and Garfunkel:



Disturbed:



Kick ass.

I'm not a fan of that cover being a ballad. I wanted a fast heavy screamo version of SoS!

I almost feel bad for posting this one, as i love Richard Thompson's "Vincent Black Lightning 1952" with a passion....but i've recently found this one which i love just as much. A very gritty performance by Sean Rowe....a new musician to my ears.

Stunning cover in my unimportant opinion.....best played with much volume.

Architects cover of Blood Bank by Bon Ivor



Also Maynards version of Bohemian Raphsody



And to the OP, have you heard Tori Amos do Muhammad my friend with Maynard? Awesome song (not a cover)

I guess I will go for the most obvious one.

All Along The Watch Tower- Bob Dylan



And, in my opinion, a slightly better version by Jimi Hendrix





Also DMB does a good cover of that song
.

Here's my contribution:


Hell let's throw this one in too:

Umphrey's McGee do some AMAZING covers:
Youtube play list of Umphree's McGee cover songs
Gotta click on the link to listen though since I can't get ATS to link a youtube playlist.

They are also releasing a new cd on the 11th that is a mashup of different cover songs too. Here's a few of them that they've released so far.

As for me, 'True colors" by Phil Collins is a better version than that by Cyndi Lauper
