Fellow Music Aficionado - - - while YT reminiscing today I stumbled upon an old favorite from wayback (1977) - - Mr. Rusty Wier from the STACKED DECK album, before he sold out a bit to more popular tunes following the Urban Cowboy trend. Enjoy!
One of my favorite singer / songwriters, he's done some really good stuff (ref: You'll Never Leave Harlan Alive) but I really was blown away by his picking style on this one today and just thought I would share. Enjoy!
There are thousands of other versions and many many bands, both well known and of the garage variety, have covered the song in every style imaginable over the past 50 years so I'll spare you sitting through the likes of Skid Row and TheCorrs and Ottmar Liebert and Popa Chubby(unless you just really want to dig deeper on your own), but you owe it to yourself to end the assignment with THIS ONE.

I'm not a musician, just an appreciator, so much of the technical stuff she gets into are way over my head, but I really enjoyed the story telling and listening to how many of the innovative riffs she came up with over the years have influenced the sound of both rock & roll legends and today's modern music.
I'll just leave it here for when you have the time to get into it. ENJOY!
