....I know, usually they're just rubbish - but, now and then a good 'un comes along.

I heard this on the wireless today, and thought it was excellent.

24 y.o. Irish guy Hozier - doing 'Whole Lotta Love' by Led Zep - worth a listen.

He has a couple of albums on Spotify - they're pretty good actually.

What other covers make the grade?

I like his Hendrix covers, but his classic blues are fantastic. Tommy Shannon is my fave bassist.

Whole Lotta Love was a signature record played at my disco.

Quad amps, mighty speakers. That version fell off the cliff immediately.

I'm scrabbling through stuff now.

Heard it through the Grapevine by CCC.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=93S_l0qZrXA&feature=kp

Gaye's Motown version is obviously better, but this is a great rock version.

Also, I'm not sure who's is the original really.
