    I think Hank Jr. did the best cover of this song..

    Ugh! Shinedown does the WORST cover. I am a huge Skynyrd fan, so I don't feel any cover comes close to the original.

    Really...I thought they did an awesome job. I didnt think it was that far off from the opriginal, vocal wise it was embelished but the music was spot on... I love skynyrd, always have and for more than their "popular songs..."

    Then again I also like alot of new music... so that may be the differance?:confused:

    For old timers, it's blesphemy, especially THAT song... Noone can touch Ronny..

    But on a tech note, I just really hate the way they progress thru their version...

    I didnt grom up on skynyrd, ive prolly been into them for 9-10 years. Way before shinedown but I dont have the same attachment you guys do...

    Personal preferance I guess. But as far as covers go its my fav. Theres still a special place in my heart for the original though...

    (and no, that special place is not Dee-Dee-Dee:p::haha:)

    I forgot about the shinedown version.. I liked it too.. heck, hank jr's version had flutes in it, which the original didn't have..

    I'd rather hear a band interpret a song their own way, rather than do a note for note copy of the original... it doesn't always "work", ( to me ), but sometimes it does..

    I like the way gov't mule does covers, and type O negative too.. an example of a cover that missed the mark ( way missed ) was warrant doing the old blackfoot song, "train, train".. now THAT sucked.. but then, I hated warrant, so maybe that had a lot to do with my reaction to the song..

    I don't mind if a band covers someone else's song, as long as they do it justice. I don't care for shinedown anyway, but the guy sounds too much like he's havin' problems pinching one out during the cover.
