    I've heard a number of covers of Deep Purp's Highway Star and man people need to stop trying to cover that

    On a serious/cool note, Mike Portnoy saw a cover that guy did of a Dream Theater song, and is sending him a real drum set. Every once in a while, social media isn’t the absolute worst.

    Absolutely not. I mean this as no disrespect to Willie but you literally cannot improve on a perfect song (much less a perfect album which Graceland is).
