Cover vs. Original: Remember When Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band Covered “Midnight Rider” by The Allman Brothers Band?

I thought I would go back in the proverbial time machine as Madness To Creation is commemorating the life and times of Gregg Allman.  In 1973, Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band covered “Midnight Rider” from their “Back in ’72” album.  Personally, I thought it was a solid cover by the legendary rocker.  Bob Seger put his own unique twist on it while paying homage to The Allman Brothers Band.  I am also going to offer Zac Brown Band’s live performance of “Midnight Rider”, in which Gregg Allman made a surprise appearance for Zac Brown Band’s performance.  Did both the Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band and Zac Brown Band do The Allman Brothers justice?  Let us know in the comments below!

The vision that I have for this site was that I was getting weary of sites that evolve from the original message to what I refer to as "tabloid magazine stand at the grocery store checkouts" kind of sites. My heart is with the underground bands and for the bands/artists that strive to hit that dream, and they spend thousands of dollars on equipment just to play a $100 show!
