IMO the only way to cover a Stones song is to come at it from a completely different angle; to try and convey the spirit of the song, but from another side. Nobody can out-stone the Stones. This is why all covers of Gimme Shelter or JJF are just jams. I like GFR's Gimme Shelter, but it can't hold a candle to the original.
Now when Ryan Adams does "Brown Sugar" or Alvin Youngblood does "Moonlight Mile", or that version of Sympathy on the Symphonic Stones album, those are a new take on a song; so strong they are almost like a new original.
My friend knows him. Played at my friend's 50th birthday too. And hopefully at his 60th too next month. Leon still has a black guitar given to him by Keith. And he brings it many places. And he invites people to play with him always. So can you guess what I want to do at that 60th birthday party next month if Leon plays there?Quote
