  1. There’s a lot to like in the cover here. I’ve heard Zack work in plenty of styles (see some of his video playing with the Lynyrd Skynyrd guys), and I think he can totally rock this kind of music. However, there was something weird about the vocals on this one. His annunciation of the words sounded kind of garbled, like the guy had just had oral surgery or something.

    I’m definitely a BLS fan and really like Zack’s unique vocals. This one was just off for me somehow.

  2. Really, really wish he would put out a Book of Shadows type album again……enjoy that side of Zakk much more than BLS/Ozzy stuff. You know, an album, with true soul to it, like this cover. Well done, Zakk.

  3. Hard to believe that with his resume, he s only 46. Soon enough, he ll be the only link to OZZY and the glory days of metal music. His IRON MAN with Captain Kirk is also very good.

  4. I love the Bill Withers original of this song.

    I can’t say I am enthusiastic about this cover though. To me, it feels like a demo. The vocals are more imitation than original. I just can’t get into it like I wanted to when I read the headline. I was really excited by this idea.

    I would have liked to have heard this with some real guitar muscle behind it rather than a fairly traditional version. Take it someplace new. I think this had potential to be a really kick ass song for BLS. At least that is what I heard in my head when I saw the headline for this story.

    Not a bad track, I just think this is a missed opportunity to do something new with it.

    1. I kind of agree. It’s very cool that he can sing and he does his thing with it. But everyone and their brother – major heavy vocalists, have done the tune and it’s tough to do it well. He certainly did a passable version of it to his credit.
