Hi guys. I've been wanting to do a cover of this song for so long it's not funny.. finally after a few months of putting it on the back burner due to other commitments we finally got it done. Hope you enjoy it smile.gif

worked fine for me, but I watched it direct on YT.

Awesome cover, Ben. sounded perfect, great playing.

Yon vocalist though..... man, he knocked it out the park! He's rather good is he not! biggrin.gif

Same in all browsers for me. Just loading for a while then saying: "There was an error. Try again later". All other videos on Youtube work fine. Weird!

Maybe it's for the best. I won't feel like a complete beginner by watching your playing laugh.gif

EDIT: Working again now smile.gif

Benmeister, man!! What can I say. This is what you can only achieve when you have a bunch of super great musicians in one band ! This is absolutely awesome !!! To my opinion, This kind of music, with this quality is what they should headline on all those big festivals out there, in stead of all that DJ stuff!!

Big congrats mate !!! smile.gif

As others have said, the vocalist kicked some butt as well!

Thats one of the best songs I have ever heard... the original and your cover...

The solo from 5:05 to 7:34 is epic... it looks so easy when you play it.... speachless! ohmy.gif

Also the vocalist is over the top.... cool.gif

Ben, thats pure inspiration! smile.gif
