Just because we were discussing this piece earlier this weekend... the video description reads "one of Canada's least known treasures" - band
called Streetheart, out of Saskatchewan. This video is from '79, and relieved to report they're still touring, and they still sound as good as they
used to-- really. No lip synching either.
This song sounds immensely better in good quality stereo, but its arguably called a better version than the Stones'
Under My Thumb:
Good thread! Never been a big Pink fan so never would've seen that version that she carried off so well - thanks for that one too. I have a new
appreciation for the strength of her voice, and she appeared to deliver it so "effortlessly"
Music is so good for the soul.
Can never get enough Johnny!
- side note if you're in to mysteries at all, Johnny wrote/sang a song about a nurse he met in Saskatoon (Girl in Saskatoon or something) who was
later murdered by, the courts decided accused killer David Milgard who was years later released from prison, proven wrongly accused in a string of
murders in the city...
Off to see the lesser-known artist - musical treasures always fun to discover!
update: Just had to come back and say WOW to Noah-- that big voice! Thank you too, THE GUT.

I have only ever heard ONE great cover of Led Zeppelin and that was done by Tool to "No Quarter". Local H does a great cover of AC/DC's Long Way
to the Top and Phil Anselmo from Pantera does an excellent spoken word cover of the same song. Anthrax teamed up with Public Enemy to cover Bring the
Noise (technically not a cover but still awesome). While I am a metal head that doesn't like rap - hats off to Run DMC for pulling off a better
version of "WalkThis Way". I believe it's the band Sacred Reich that puts new energy into Black Sabbath's "War Pigs". Check out Blind Melon's
"The Pusher" and "John Sinclair". Possibly my favorite - Blues Traveler's cover of Snoop (Dog at the time) Gin n Juice. Dave Matthews does a
great live cover of Peter Gabriel's "Sledgehammer" and Neil Diamond's "Sweet Caroline". Disturbed goes crazy to Franky Goes to Hollywood's
"Shout". How about Nuno Bettencourt and Extreme opening their song "He man Woman Hater" with a cover of "Flight of the Bumble Bee"? Bruce
Willis does a great version of Bing Crosby's "Swinging on a Star" in the movie Hudson Hawk. Metallica dong "Stone Cold Crazy" originally by
Queen? Tesla doing "signs". Ugly Kid Joe - "busy Bee" & "Cats in the Cradle".
I know this is not what most consider a good cover but I LOVE this version. There is no ground breaking guitar or anything special, well maybe Rob
Matchbox Twenty did "Time After Time" by Cyndi Lauper around 1998 in Australia LIVE. I had it on VHS lol I loved it. I have seen them a dozen or so
times but I've never seen them do this cover live. The Australia one is my absolute favorite cover.
