This one doesn’t veer much from the original, more just shows respect from one legendary band to another legendary artist.
I’m guessing Thom can relate to the lyrics. Both Thom and Neil seem to have the same feeling about fame and it’s associated bullshit.
Great ******* song!

Mildly interesting acoustic cover of Sabbath's "War Pigs" done as in a sort of front porch blues/folk style by Freakwater back when they were just a duo.

B-side of their first single from 1990. I'm not a big fan but I like this more than the bunch of 2nd hand CD's I've picked up by them subsequently.

1000 musicians in a French stadium playing My Hero in remembrance of Taylor Hawkins.

The drumming from Dave on his own in the original is thunderous and gets my pulse racing. This is simply stunning

With the brilliant Kate Bush currently sitting at number one with her 1985 classic Running Up That Hill (A Deal A God) I thought I would post a couple of the better known cover versions of her masterpiece.






I thought about including the Within Temptation cover, but it is such a disappointing version (and from a band that I think have produced a number of great albums over the last 25 years) that I decided to spare you, but the video is on You Tube if you wish to punish yourself.:D
