SPORTS & LEISURE: MUSIC- Covering The Cover Bands -Stacey Cardalines Reporting...

I thought I'd use the Leisure part of this column to show some love for the Cover Bands on SL.

A cover band is someone who assumes some of the persona of a famous IRL band (no offense to SL artists, but I haven't seen a Jak Streeter cover band yet) and performs their show for a crowd. No attempt is made to fool the audience into thinking John Lennon or Jimi Hendrix had returned from the dead.

The bands covered aren't always dead. I think all of the guys from KISS are still alive, although- with the facepaint- they could easily hide a replacement. They could be on their 8th guitarist for all I know.

The SL Enquirer is not afraid of cover bands. We had a Guns n Roses cover band in our old Friday Night Conversation feature. Slash was identical...although, when Slash spoke, he sounded like a woman from Missouri. Motherf*cker could sling the axe, though...

Some bands don't bother trying to dress up as the band. I can understand this, and can agree with and enjoy the concept of playing the music as a tribute. I also agree that there is no need for a second, say, Ozzy.

Now... I give to you....Phoenix!

I know some of the Phoenix girls from my gym, so I'll just run their notecard for you.
