The Killers: To make this edition a bit more diverse, I have included this video of The Killers, even though the very beginning is cut off.
Of Montreal: There is no doubt Kevin Barnes, front-man of Of Montreal, channels David Bowie and other glam-rock legends.

Oh You Pretty Things: This group was formed for a performance on Jamcruise 6 and it featured Al Schnier, Jon Fishman, Jans Ingber, Ron Johnson, Robert Walter, and Jeff Austin amongst other guests.

Rose Hill Drive: This power trio delivers a solid rocking performance from this show from New York City last year. Before the song starts, the lead singer warns that he might not remember all of it…Sounds like it was nailed to me.

The White Stripes: In this old video of The White Stripes, you can hear someone quip “He sounds like a weirdo” in reference to Jack White as he is introducing the song.

Checking in on last week, the readers have spoken and declared Joan Baez the unanimous winner of the A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall Cover Wars. Funny, I had lukewarm things to say about her rendition and she ended up the clear winner – shows what I know! Anyway, it’s time to place your vote for this week below:
