Cover vs. Original

Sympathy For the Devil


Both good but Guns n' Roses has slash and is amazin guitar solo while keith richards isn't very outgoing in this track.
Both have annoying singers but gotta say that axl rose does better. And with the higher bass frequencies ,thanks to Duff with his high treble bass sounds, it also makes it sound fuller and more dynamic.

Axl voice is boring?, what-- really people u will never sign liek him if hes got a bad voice my voice worths 1 dollar.. slash solo is cool, this version is really cool nd rocks, gnr version, they give the song an agressive rythm, i like the rolling stones original version, but its too slow for me, gnr WON THIS ROUND nd every round they play...

The Guns N' Roses version isn't a bad cover, but the main problem I have with it is that it doesn't really feel like anything. When I listen to the Stones' version, I can picture them on stage, I can see Mick strutting about, I really feel the imagery, but the Guns N' Roses version, just seems very... studio-y. There isn't that same raw quality to it. But it's not a BAD cover by any means.

Guns N' Roses to me is like a projection of the Rolling Stones 30 years into the scope. Louder, faster, more volatile but pretty much the same musical path. No to trivialize GNR in any way... if anything they were a better version of the stoner attitude at the end of the 20th century. The fact that Izzy and Ronnie Wood look so much alike doesn't help either.

Both versions I think are freakin' awsome. I am a guitarist with one year's experence. I think Slash's solos on this are damn good, and I know damn good solos. I also like Axl's voice better than Mick's, but they're both talented. The one thing the Stones have the edge on is the very creative drum beats, and that they wrote the lyrics. I picked Guns 'n' Roses whose my 4th favorite band

The best version of S.F.T.D., was by Bryan Ferry from the album 'These foolish Things'; give it an ear!
