    The Who and Van Halen covering "Summertime Blues" live in concert many times. Also, to a lesser extent, Rush also covered it live on R30, but curiously their tempo on it is way too slow.

    The Jeff Healey Band did a smoking hot cover of ZZ Top's "Blue Jean Blues", on their debut album - See the Light .
    Jeff was one of the best blues players I've ever seen... R.I.P.
