Cover vs. Original

Turn The Page


I think that both artists did a good job on "Turn The Page". The heavy style from Metallica fits quite well to this song. But I like the calm-country-style version by Bob Seger better.
So what is your opinion? I can imagine that lots of younger people don't even know the original version by Bob Seger. So take the chance and listen to this great song.

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Both are in and BOTH are equally exceptional musicians/bands. A true lover a music understands both sides and the value of each performance.

For everyone who loves Seger take it as a compliment that another entity covered your musicians song. Take it as a complement that people are even still talking of Bob Seger and reason being that people cover his stuff. Remember how will the world ever know his music if someone does not introduce the old music to the new musicians.

And for those who adore something heavier dont forget all those musicians that came before.

Go Metallica!!! NYC November 2009!!! See you there!!!
WP will be there in FULL FORCE!!!

Hah, didn't even know this wasn't originally by Metallica..

Having listened to Seger's version, I think I still like Metallica's better, since the more upbeat really fits the emotions, but it's a definitely close contest.
