    Not a 'rock' song originally, but as one site posted it...."Many people tried to bring reggae to the US, but it wasn’t until Clapton did this song, that the world really paid attention".

    Bob Marley wasn't as much a household name until after Clapton did this one. This live version raises his studio version to another level....in particular beginning at 5:00 mark.

    Find the video at youtube....click on "share" tab...then click on "embed"....copy the code, then paste it in your post here. Works like a charm.

    It is difficult at best to find anyone to even try to cover what is considered by many to be THE most legendary rock song ever--Stairway to Heaven. One of those tunes best left alone for only Zeppelin to do. You know...if it ain't broke, don't muck with it.

    Well, this video isn't really a 'remake' but more of a one time performance done by Ann and Nancy Wilson during the Kennedy Center Honors Led Zeppelin Night. With Zeppelin sitting in the audience, this performance has to be one of the coolest ever. Brought in a friggin choir in the back along with a small orchestra, and did what I think is an excellent rendition. Even the Zeppelin guys themselves seemed to be enjoying it.
