Check out Sandi Thom’s version of #GunsNRoses November Rain @Sandi_Thom. We love it! What’s your fave rock cover version?

Hello there!

As mentioned during a show a few weeks ago, I’ve really enjoyed listening to Sandi Thom’s version of a Guns ‘N’ Roses classic, taken from her album called ‘The Covers Collection’. It’s an album crammed full of her interpretations of some of the greatest rock classics; including Heart’s ‘Alone’, ‘Times Like These’ by the Foo Fighters, ‘Black Velvet’ by Alannah Myles, Aerosmith’s ‘Dream On’ and Led Zeppelin’s ‘The Rain Song’, to name but a few.

This got me thinking; it’s been a good while since I put together a Classic Rock Show ‘Cover Versions’ Special. When these have been aired these in the past, a good few surprises have been heard amongst those that are perhaps more familiar to our ears. Each show has always gone down a storm.

I’m putting on another of those ‘Covers’ show for you on Thursday, February 13th at 7pm.

So, tell me, what are your fave rock cover versions? Add them to the comment box below and if I’ve got the track available, it’ll be put in the pot for Thursday’s show.



PS: Sandi Thom begins her 2014 World Tour in April. For more information, click here. I’ll be interviewing Sandi ahead of the tour – more details on that next month.

Mum’s 81st birthday today, plus David Bowie releases a single!!! Win Win!!

Well it was great to speak with my mum on her 81st birthday today 🙂

Today was also notable in that it’s David Bowie’s birthday and he released a new single…’ Where Are We Now’. I like it…a lot!!

There was also news that he will be releasing a studio album later in 2013 called ‘The Next Day’, his first in 10 years. Here’s the news link to the official website.

I’m playing a Bowie song on this Thursday’s show. A track from an OST…I’d be interested to know your guesses as to what song you think it is.

Here’s the official video: David Bowie ‘Where Are We Now?’
