Sticky Post
Since it's so very hard to spend any time on a computer without finding something fascinating on YouTube (or similar websites), I felt the urge to post one of the things that I find to be incredible as far as music videos go.

It's no secret that I am a big fan of classic rock. Obviously there is a whole new generation of people who had adopted this style of music as there own.
But when it comes to cover songs, most mucisians tend to be purists, feeling that an EXACT copy of an original song completely takes the 'art' from the music.

I can certainly understand that. However, I also feel that the level of accuracy in perfecting every detail of an original score is an art form in itself!
Some of the kids I've subscribed to (on YouTube) who have demonstrated their amazing talent to reproducing some of these rock classics are beyond incredible to me.

I'm sure that many here will already know some of the musicians that have posted some of their stuff on YouTube, but I'd just like to use this thread to give some big time props to any real quality cover that someone may want to post here. I'll start with two exceptional covers which I feel are done PERFECTLY!

These are of such good quality they would make GREAT karaoke songs! In fact I've belted out the lyrics to these tunes many times in recent months! :hihi:

I came here to post this. It's a new release, single. I think it's pretty damned good, if a bit unexpected from Train.

I have listened to it about 10 times since I found it Friday night on Spotify.

From what I understand Train is doing a tribute to the entire Led Zeppelin II album. I've already listened to some of the other songs they do from that album on YouTube. The dude does a pretty good job covering Plant's vocals.

I looks like the full album release will be June 3.

Well, I'm about to record a vocal tribute of "Kashmir", and I am in awe of anyone who can do justice to Robert Plant... esp what he could do circa 1970! Wow!

Gotta love the sheer joy they displayed as they covered this song... regardless if you like FF or not (I do), FF did 'em a solid and gave them their own concert last November...
