Today on The List, Dan counts down his top five cover-bands. These are Rock and Roll Hall of Fame bands that have a way with someone else’s tune…as well as their own.
Dancing in the Street-Van Halen
So YouWanna Be a Rock and Roll Star-Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers
Viva Las Vegas- Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band
Ain’t too Proud to Beg-Rolling Stones
Twist and Shout-Beatles
You've probably got the best list there is here. Just a couple of additions. Didn't The Stones do a pretty good version of "Ain't too Proud to Beg", as well? I seem to remember that at least some of "T he Temps" were in on it. Also, Jimmy Buffet did a decent cover of James Taylor's "Mexico" that Taylor actually sang back-up on.
