COVER ME! Ryan Adams - Wasted Years

Ryan Adams - 'Wasted Years' (Iron Maiden)
Being a huge Ryan Adams fan and also a fan of metal, I love this cover! I was first alerted to this a few months ago when he played it on BBC Radio 2 (August 2011) however I hadn't seen any footage of it....but I found this a few days ago and had to "share the shred" with you.
"Worshipping the Sabbath"
It is great to see him playing material that he clearly loves - I've seen him a few times live and he'd often talk about his love of metal - often with some of the audience not knowing if he was taking the p&ss or not. But as you can see with this Maiden version & his recent cover of RATT's "Round & Round" (find it here on Electric Mustache) he's back in love with music - and this makes me very happy!

I kinda wish he kicked over his mic stand at the end.

Oh no! I'm starting to find Ryan Adams strangely attractive in a nerdy looking Rick Moranis 'honey I shrunk the kids' sort of way! Great delivery and that's what covers are all about. Love the cheesy european radio station!
