Waylon covered lots of hip tunes .
A musician who wasn't afraid to be adventurous for sure

idk...I'd alway been under the impression from various reading material etc...that Waylon was a pretty hip/cool guy, that many a musician requested his presence...quite a good player....so I'm not really surprised I quess...suppose maybe his late 70's persona overshadowed...reality....

Waylon was the Chuck Norris of his day. And if you disagreed with him, well, expect a few of these :boxer:boxer:boxer
:D

So if Waylon wants to play White Room, Waylon will play it ;)

The least he could have done is change up the groove or arrangement a bit. It sounded like karaoke time at the Outlaw Cowboy Saloon.

I'm thinking that may have been the point, the guy always seemed like he was looking to have a good time. And what spells good time like karaoke? lol ...

I dug the hell out of it, might not ever play it again, but it was fun for a minute.

That was from an album just released last year that he recorded with Shooter and the 357's. Has alot of cool versions of his songs like Jack of Diamonds and Ain't Livin Long Like This. Waylon wasn't a young guy when it was recorded.

I thought it was pretty cool. That solo at the end was neat...lots of feedback goodness.

Waylon gets a free pass as far as I'm concerned. He could have done "Tiptoe Through The Tulips" and still been cool.

Check out Dolly Parton's version of "Stairway To Heaven" or The Oak Ridge Boys doing "Seven Nation Army" (White Stripes). That's some weirdness.

Dwight Yoakam always has the best covers. He does a great version of "Want You To Want Me" (Cheap Trick) and "Train In Vain" (The Clash).
