The End of the World: a joke, right?

So, tomorrow it's the end of the world! You must be joking, right? :-)

I prefer R.E.M.'s version: It's the end of the world AS WE KNOW IT!

Geoff Tate - Queensryche Split

Geoff Tate talks frankly about Queensrÿche split in the following interview, but he also speaks about his new album, Kings & Thieves.

I am a big fan of Queensrÿche's Operation Mindcrime, but this isn't the reason I am posting these video clips. The main reason is the way Geoff Tate sees the relationship between him and Queensryche. I feel the same kind of relationship between myself and my job. I wonder what comes next with my company, considering its present situation, and what will happen with my career?

Anyways, enjoy the interview and the music!

Sometimes is a question of mood, some other times is a question of taste.
Today I propose a different approach of the very same song: Astronomy.
Blue Oyster Cult comes first, then it's Metallica's cover.
Do you a favourite one?

Black Label Society vs. Lynyrd Skynyrd

Years ago, while in Timisoara, I used to listen to Radio Stotka, a radio station in Novi Sad, Serbia. One of their shows put together two songs: an original one, and its remake. The listeners sent their votes to the radio station, and counted for each version. In more than 90% of the songs contest, the conclusion was: "Uvek je bolje original!", or "Original is always better!".

For today, I have chosen Lynyrd Skynyrd's "I Never Dreamed" as the original one, and Black Label Society with its cover. Each one has an original approach of the story within the lyrics, so it is quite hard to decide which one to vote for! Speaking of lyrics, Lynyrd Skynyrd say "Daddy", and Zakk Wylde says "Father"!

Which one is your favorite?
