Make it your own

“Burn” is making it’s way around the radio world.

A supporting DJ (I’ll keep it anonymous) asks the following:
“A question about your “Peg” cover. The tempo is so significantly different. Not being musician I still want to say something intelligent when I play it.
Was there a reason within the song to redefine it? Or is it because it’s your signature style?”

Answer is, I’d get bored just recreating what was already done.

You’re either a “live” version of something else (literally translates to “tribute” or “wedding” bands) or you’re creating something of your own and it’s something no one has heard before.
And, of course you can do it with someone else’s song.

If you’re going to record one one of your favorites, why not make it your own?
