Dylan Cover #600 Guns N' Roses "Knockin' on Heaven's Door"

 In this ongoing Monday Series we will be exploring various artists versions of Bob Dylan song's. Today's tune is a cover by Guns N' Roses  playing "Knockin' On Heaven's Door'"

Thoughts on Original:
From the first time we tackled a cover of this tune:
The song that seems to have been covered by every and any one, but when originally recorded it it was featured on one of Dylan's oddest releases yet. A straight ahead mournful number that just seems to work somehow and like a lot of Dylan tunes has grown beyond it's humble beginning. The song is really a testament to his amazing songwriting which can seem simple at times. The tune has invaded culture (possibly because of all the covers) and I would wager it is one of Dylan's most widely known tunes...


Thoughts on Cover Artist:
C'mon man, they are GnR, the one LA rock outfit to come out of the 80's and earn everyone's respect. Legends. 

Thoughts on Cover:
This was a monstrous cover that was everywhere when GnR were the biggest band in the world...or at least on MTV when that mattered.  When we hit these big round numbers we like to try to get a cover worthy, this certainly fits the bill.

New Single From Fazerdaze, "Bigger"

New Zealand songwriter and producer Fazerdaze (aka Amelia Murray) has shared her new single “Bigger”

Regarding the song Murray states:
“I have often felt that ambition and being in the public eye can be a point of tension in my romantic relationships. I think this song is me trying to explore and overcome that with someone I cared about. For the production, I was exploring writing an anti-chorus. The synths do all the work and the vocal melody drops into a talk. I wanted to experiment with strange bendy synths and lean into a cinematic night time world.”
