Saturday Night's Alright For (Uke) Cover Fighting!


First, 'The Original', by a real original....

And now, 'The Cover', which was found so serendipitously that I can't even begin to explain it, except to say that I looking for the antithesis of the thing when I stumbled upon this...

You want the real, and more original, original version of dear old uncle Bill back in the days when he was still the scrawny nephew who was not nicking mirrors in car parks in Essex?...Well, here it is....And really, was not young Billy really just doing the whole YouTube guitar in my bedroom thing before there was internets...God, think of the balls it took for this kid to just go out there and do this on his own, essentially, without a band behind him...Pretty damned amazing.
As for the kid doing the cover?....Turns out she's doing some pretty interesting stuff of her own...
You know, I am absolutely certain that it really and truly will be the amateurs and the plebes that will save us...And, on that note, any early wagers on who will play Iron Steve in the movie after we, ourselves, realize that we are not looking to change the world, but that we are looking for a new Canada?
