Pretty massive vocals, if you ask me!

In a more traditional vein, here is Mr. Big trying their way around an instrumental version of “Burn”:

    I just did a cover of Anyone’s Daughter on my latest CD. A bit of a different take as well. You can preview it at iTunes. The band is Donut Kings.

    Mr. Big has always been impressive! Billy Sheehan can make that bass get up and dance! The Siberian Highway Star is pretty good too.

    Deep Purple covers may well be a good subject for a feature of their own. There are a lot of them out there…
    Did the second Information Superhighway Stars project ever get anywhere?

    That burn cover is amazing. I never thought anyone would try and transpose the keyboard solo to bass.

    Blackmore’s solo transposed to bamboo flute is even more amazing, if you ask me:))

    Bloody Great, the present day DP should give it a go and give Roger a nice big fat bass solo like Sheehan’s.
