“JACK” OF ALL OBSCURE COVER SONGS – (A Special Dedication)
The key player in each of these bands is named Jack (Jack Russell – Great White, Jack Blades – Night Ranger, Jack Starr – Jack Starr’s Burning Starr).
Each of these songs are cover versions that are not known by the masses…
“Substitute” by Great White is a cover version originally done by The Who. Great White is known for their cover version of Ian Hunter’s “Once Bitten, Twice Shy,” but few people know about the cover of “Substitute” from their self-titled debut album.
Night Ranger is known by even the most casual fan for their song, “Sister Christian.” In 2011, they released a cover version of the AC/DC classic – “Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap.”
Jack Starr’s Burning Starr is an underrated band that has reunited in recent years; their history goes back to the 80’s. Their cover of James Taylor’s “Fire And Rain” brought the song to an entirely new level.
