Guns N’ Roses is currently on their Not in This Lifetime reunion tour and they have been whipping out some pretty awesome covers.
During Wednesday night’s (Aug. 30) show in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada they pulled out a cover you might not expect: Glen Campbell’s “Wichita Lineman.”
In the video below, Axl Rose touches on it’s unexpectedness.
“We’re going to play something we’ve never played before. It might not be your thing, but we’re just trying to pay a tribute to someone,” said Rose. “It’s not what you think.”
I love seeing artists from other genres appreciate and pay tribute to one of country’s late greats, Glen Campbell.
