  1. Sometimes a cover is AWESOME, other times it just makes you wanna hear the original. With this, it just reminds me of how good the original is. Sorry, this is a thumbs down for me.

    1. Michael,

      I know music, like food, art, etc. is all personal, but I think Little Ceasar’s (not the pizza chain) cover of Chain of Fools, is one of the best, I have ever heard. I actually think it far surpasses the original by Franklin, but to each their own.

      Dana 🙂

    2. Halestorm does a good job with their covers, especially ” I Want You (She’s So Heavy)” by The Beatles. Adrenaline Mob also has a bunch of really well done covers, especially “Devil Went Down in Georgia” and “Romeo Delight”. This cover by Sevendust is just a fail, IMO.

      Eddie should do a top 20 covers special!

    3. I am one of those weirdo Beatles fans who doesn’t like anyone covering them-LOL! But surprisinlgy, I do like Dokken’s cover of Nowhere Man, maybe it’s because I don’t have a huge attachment to that song, and their harmonies are insanely good.

      Maybe, I will suggest that to Eddie? Thanks.
