    Default A Respectable ATBL Cover!

    I wanted to share! (Sorry if this has been covered already in another place.)
    Here is Billy Idol doing justice to a VH classic. Ain't Talkin' Bout Love. Hey VR take notes.

    MySpace URL:

    http://www.myspace.com/billyidol


    I am biased, but they should have had Billy do the speech and the performance. He is friends with the band and he has prven he can nail the tunes. He even does Jump in his sets.

    BIlly's awesome. Inducting VH into the HOF would have been appropriate, especially also considering Steve Stevens' credibility in the guitar world.
    If it's BROWN, flush it DOWN.

    that was my first thought.

    Nonetheless. Still a great performer and rocker.

    I've never been a Billy Idol fan, but that was a pretty good cover. He may have been reading the lyrics, but it is better than VR reading the induction speech like a junior high presentation.

    That is probably the extent of their education.

    I think Billy does a good job covering VH...his version of Jump wasn't bad either.
    Just go for it!
