    Default I'm The One - You won't find a better cover than this one

    Holy shit, check out this dude playing I'm The One. This is the best cover of this tune ON GUITAR I've ever come across. The guy's tone is dead-on and he nails every note, dive bomb, and tap. Phenomenal job.

    Get a load of the crowd...hilarious! Here's this band hammering out classic VH and the crowd looks to be 65 years old. Lol... Looks like a church group or something.

    Yeah, the singing is nothing to write home about but you gotta give it up to that guy on guitar. Awesome job.

    I agree. Vocals are horrid.

    Guitar is so-so.

    I like the retirement home setting though !!!
    One noticeable difference between Judas Priest and Metallica...
    ...Judas Priest only has one gay guy in the band.

    Stellar guitar playing. But where THE HELL is that gig taking place? I love the old fuck in the front-right in front of the amps-you know he's getting blasted and he just sits there like he's waiting for a bus. Priceless!

    Guitar is definately not "so-so" the dude rips his ax off, great tone great clarity and all. Abit sad all he ended up being in is a cover band though.

    Great guitar work, dead on.
    The singer looked like Sebastian Bach with alot less testosterone.
    The drummer looked like a reject from LOVERBOY.
    and the bassist looked like (God rest his sole) the Croc Hunter.

    I'm with the concensus here, great guitar work, shitty vocals.

    No way, man. True, the singer was bad, but that drummer was the gayest dude on that video.

    What the hell was that? That was odd. I don't get it. Were they rockin' a retirement community? Weird. Guitarist was good. The rest of the band shit the bed on that one.
