    I agree with most of the 70's productions thing, however the original Live and Let Die has gobs of power (to me anyway). I love GnR version too!
    So. Let's just call that one a tie, lol.
    what about GnR knock knock KNOCKin' on heaven's doh-whoa! ? lol

    A coupe of good ones. I'm with others, I'm not sure about the GnR version of Live and Let Die. I'm admittedly tainted, however, as I'm not a GnR fan.

    My good friends band in HS covered that tune. They LOVED Ki$$. Was years before I realized that it was a Stones song.

    Most of the stuff from the 70's sounds great though? Drums have punch and actually sound like drums.. Guitars were butter, and or gross and dirty in the best way... and the bass was bong rattling!

    Les McCann did a rad cover of Marvin Gaye's 'What's goin' on'.
    Lettuce did Herbie Hancock's 'Hang up your hangups' really well.
    And more Bill Frissell than I wanna type. lol.

    My drums donít naturally sound like there are pillows shoved in them. That is the 70ís sound outside of a few like Bonham.

    'kay. if you wanna generalize an entire decade of audio engineering and drummers that's your loss, homie.
    i'm sorry bonham is your best example of good drum sounds from the 70's. should listen to more stuff, dude.

    Listen to Lights by Journey and then try to tell me the drums don’t have a bunch of pillows shoved in it, especially compared any Led Zeppelin or Van Halen record. As great of a player he is, from what I’ve heard I find Steve Gadd’s drum sound choked.

    Listen to Steve Smith’s sound on the 70’s Journey records and compare it to the 90’s Trial by Fire.

    Give me another example of a live open 70’s sound then.

    Every Day Is A Winding Road - Prince
    Hard To Handle - The Black Crowes
    Pretty much anything Trent Reznor has covered
    The Green Manalishi (With The Two Pronged Crown) - Judas Priest
    Basically two thirds of Led Zeppelin's entire catalog
    God Save The Queen - Motorhead
    All Along The Watchtower - Jimi Hendrix
    Renegades Of Funk - Rage Against The Machine
    A Little Help From My Friends - Joe Cocker
    Leaving On A Jet Plane - Chantal Kreviazuk

    And of course, the greatest cover song ever recorded...

    Rocket Man - William Shatner



    Also, take a listen to the album Paint It Blue: Songs Of The Rolling Stones if you've never heard it. It's all Blues covers from artists like Luther Allison, Junior Wells, Bobby Womack and Taj Mahal, and it's amazing. I won't say that they're better than the originals, but they're a completely different take on the music and I love the whole album.
    Don't pick a fight with a drummer... we beat things for a living.
