Big Rogers and Hammerstien fan?

I had to look those guys up.. LOL. My aim was not against your post. I am a fan of John Coltrane although I haven't got that many records by him.

Numerous Robert Johnson songs that were covered by rock artists such as:

Crossroads - Cream

Love In Vain - Rolling Stones

Stop Breaking Down - Rolling Stones

When I hear the originals they sound like the same song with different words, but I'm glad these other artists saw something in them and made them their own.

99.9% of Zeppelin's covers are better than the originals.

I prefer Joan Baez's version of Babe I'm Gonna Leave You. I think her voice is better suited for that track than Plant's, although LZ's version isn't bad either.

Not that the original is bad, in any way....

But, I do like Guns & Roses version better, than the original by Paul McCartney.

"Live and Let Die"

Thunder have performed plenty of good covers as live versions, album tracks and singles. Their version of 'In a Broken Dream' is a great performance and one that I prefer to the original.My link

You're crazy. ;) Although, many are equally good in my opinion. Also props to Zep for making something original out them too.
