The queen of rock Joan Jett - I want to be your dog

https://youtu.be/Ks-JBOOtPAo

I'm not convinced that Joan Jett and Iggy Pop are 2 separate people
Some people say I'm self-obsessed but that's enough about them.

Susanna and the Magical Orchestra 'Love Will Tear Us Apart', the Scandi-Noir cover version

Similarly, her cover of the Kiss classic Crazy, Crazy Nights becomes a wrist-slitting affair set to a haunting voice

Angelique Kidjo has recorded her take on the whole of Talking Heads' Remain In Light. And it is truly magnificent...

I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.

NIN covering Bowie at the Albert Hall last night. One of the highlights of an awesome show, a very moving tribute.

I always had a soft spot for Life of Agony's super-faithful cover of Tangerine:

I was reminded that Hotel California was the sound of the long hot summer of 1976, and that it's reggae-influenced. So a French reggae cover is appealing in the current climate. It's brave to cover the guitar duet as a solo, but who has two lead players?

Not quite my cuppa but brave right enough. Wonder why they changed to the third person - maybe because if it's in the first person and you can never leave, how do you get back to write the song?

Thin Lizzy were a twin lead guitar band as well. Loads of NWOBHM bands like Def Leppard and Iron Maiden had / have twin leads.
Steely Dan also did a lot of twin lead stuff.

I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.

DJ Random played me Tortoise's cover of David Essex' "Rock On" this afternoon.  That was a bit odd.
