George Vs Bo - On one hand you have George who definately adds a rockier edge to the track, that really makes you feel like putting on your leathers dusting the cobwebs off the old Harley, setting off down the M62 searching for the nearest bikers tavern and shouting to the barkeep "make mine a scotch and leave the bottle."
On the other you have Bo who makes you want to pick up the old guitar that hasn't seen the light of day since you bought it 15 years earlier when you watched the Stones 40 licks tour (that you watched on video cos you wasn't really cool enough to go and you had to see the in-laws that weekend anyway). You pick up the guitar nearly break your tooth trying to open a bottle of bud with your teeth, strap the harmonica around your neck and try out some Jeff Beck style bottle necking to Stairway To Heaven as that is the only tune you learnt how to play.
So both versions of this track make you want to recapture your lost youth and reminisce about the good old days, when the sun used to shine everyday and you used to walk down the streets with 2 girls on each arm, a real rebel without a clue. Oh if I could just go back for one more day just remember what it tasted like to feel so young with the world as my oyster and everyting was viewed through my rose tinted specs...........And that is what this track does for me which ever version I'm listening to , any song that can give you that feeling is certainly worth a listen.
