This is more of a sample I suppose and not exactly a cover, especially as Francis played on it I believe. But the best of the lot in my view. And a terrific video.
That's actually damn good. Love how the riff from an uncommercial Quo number from early in their career gets picked up by a modern day rapper and transformed. Its heavy and rockin'. Kind of reminds me of what Puff Daddy did with Kashmir with Page on the Godzilla soundtrack.
On the video itself, wouldn't it have been great to see at least one Quo video with creative visual art like this? Shame they never invested at least once. Francis appears briefly here and I can't help but think of how good 'You'll Come Round' would have looked with this gritty setting and video art work. Way cool vid.
tqontq, we are of the same mind when it comes to Quo videos. I've seen SO many fantastic ones over the years which actually grab your attention and enhance the music. The vast majority of Quo's have been "let's just have a laugh" jobs or a simple recreation of the band on stage, especially in the early days. The merest hint of seriousness about the art is always kicked into touch.
The best by far for me has always been Accident Prone and, more recently, there's something a little bit different (and superbly shot) about Go Go Go.
I remember I was at a Foo Fighters gig once and they had music videos playing on the big screens before they came on. Kasabian's Shoot The Runner came on and I immediately thought to myself, if only Quo did something like this occasionally. A video to grab you by the balls. It made me buy the music!
Too expensive I guess. And, dare I suggest it, not fitting the profile

granny: But @4th Chord regarding your new rule...if the man running the country (Dominic Cummings) can weave a fairy tale around known facts why can't we be just as creative?

juansupposin: 21st September 91 at Wembley, the 45 min Guinness concert, probably not the best concert to start, only 45 min, I remeber thinking they will play longer because it was the last concert

backwater67: Paul Hirch filled in for Quo when Andy’s wife was unable to tour. Aquostic was a complete different project for Quo. I was referring to a standard regular live gig on stage with session guitarists. Jagger does still take the lead vocal.
