    Toy Caldwell (1947 - 1993), died of heart attack brought on by cocaine use. 'Can't You See'

    Sang this one last night at a little restaurant / bar. I got a good reception partly because of the feeling put into the song... Thanks going out to my ex-wife spawn of Satan.

    I'm gonna buy a ticket, now
    As far as I can
    Ain't a-never comin' back
    Ride me a southbound
    All the way to Georgia, now
    Till the train, it run out of track

    Okee dokee!

    Like Pat Boone doing his version of Marty Robbins "White Sport Coat".

    Yup, you're right! That's gonna take a bit of doing.

    A little context please.

    A song that is on the cover of an album?
    A “cover” is when a different artist or group does their own version of someone else’s song.

    For example: (and a test run)

    Cover Tunes this Friday

    It could take a bit more work and may or may not slow things down. What I had in mind was posting both the original and cover. I haven’t figured out multiple links at once but I believe you can edit in a second after posting the first.

    Some songs have multiple covers, some recorded and others live versions on YouTube and such. Matters not, just post up what you like.

    PH’s post on the song “Spooky” also gets credit. Some covers sound totally different and others almost identical. Thought it would be fun to compare, especially for crossover stuff.

    Think on it fellas.

    However, the great Ronnie James Dio, Central New York native, who was Sabbath's lead singer for a while after Ozzy, and member of Heaven and Hell with Toni Iommi, left us a few years ago.

Hair shaved on one side and really long on the other; peace-sign earrings; wore a lot of black -- you remember the type. Really nice girl, though, and she got me into a lot of that 80s "new wave" stuff. In return, I taught her that there was a lot more to Bruce than "Born in the USA." (not that there's a thing wrong with "Born in the USA.")

    Actually, in honor of those days .....

    Sid Vicious (John Ritchie), dead at 19 of heroin overdose. After (allegedly) murdering his girlfriend Nancy Spungeon.

    Not a bad cover, actually. If you're used to Sid Vicious, that is.
    Started with the CD Throwing Copper from Live, then Nirvana and Stone Temple Pilots. Couple others as well but mostly the stuff that made Top 40 play. Lots of grunge musicians burned out young.

    I had a brief phase with alternative rock, some of the stuff was really good but a bit much as a whole. Still pull some CD’s out once In awhile, have that one.
