    There are tons of great covers out there, I know. I'll throw a couple out to start,,,maybe not "best", but I like them better than the originals.

    You can probably tell my age by my choices.

    Led Zeppelin - Bring it on Home

    Metallica - Whiskey in a Jar

    I'll throw these in the mix, too.

    Johnny Cash - Hurt

    Aretha Franklin - Respect

    Here`s a tasty little number where we get not just one, but a compilation of covers, including some vintage Jeff Beck, ZZ Top, Zeppelin, even a little "Mahavishnu Joe Bonamassa"....

    Dixie Dregs cover of Kashmir rocks! Steve Morse's guitar work is amazing.

    SRV doing Voodoo Chile ... IMHO, runs rings around Hendrix ...

    Joe Cocker might be called "the King Of Covers", he did many dozens of them over his carreer. One of my favorites is this old Animals tune from the `60s:

    "Best" is really in the ear of the beholder, but this is sure one of my favorites....

    Slowdive covering Syd Barrett

    There are a couple of very good ones - "All Along The Watchtower" for example by Hendrix, by Young.
