Up until recently I had never heard a bad cover of "Who Do You Love".

Then I encountered The Misunderstood's version. And now this jazz cover by Ms. LeGrow, which evokes something, but is not remotely as good as the original.

Oh well.

The song is meant to be a hard-edged menacing blues rocker.* Maybe no one can outdo Bo Diddley, but there have been excellent covers.

Tom Rush.

Ronnie Hawkins.

Juicy Lucy.

And possibly my favorite, the Rothrock version by George Thorogood.

*sometimes offbeat covers can work, other times they're disasters. I just had a nightmarish thought of what would have emerged if Motörhead had recorded "Angel Of The Morning".
