In this ongoing Monday Series we will be exploring various artists versions of Bob Dylan song's. Today's artists, Ann Wilson of Heart performing a live cover of "Like A Rolling Stone" 

All April (and the first week of May) RtBE focuses our Monday Dylan Cover Series on artists who are playing this years New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. Today is Heart played the festival this past
 Sunday April 28th

Thoughts on Original:
From the first time we tackled a cover:
The song that launched a true revolution, with an opening snare drum like a dead man's last pistol shot baby. "Like A Rolling Stone" is mega in all fashions, Dylan is accusatory, mad, feed up, zoned out, poetic, rambling and always moving with the sound as the track is large and in charge even today. One of the Bard's top 3 songs any which way you break them down, "Like A Rolling Stone" has been covered by a ton of people and it (usually) always kicks ass. 


Thoughts on Cover Artist:
Who doesn't enjoy Heart? Go crazy on you indeed. 

Thoughts on Cover:
A really straight ahead live version that rocks and gives Wilson's voice a ton a space to soar, which she does. Well done.
