Rocket Mantastic?

I’m a big fan of Elton John and love the song “Rocket Man”. On my way to work this morning, I heard this cover by Tool frontman Maynard James Keenan on the radio, and it threw me for quite a loop. I’m still not sure, but I think it’s starting to grow on me. Have a listen and see what you think…

  1. I give it a thumbs up! I liked it. Has soul and depth to it. I'm glad they didn't put in heavy guitars or speed it up. Sounds like a nice 2011 version of that song.

  2. I was scared to listen at first since (a) I love the original, (b) covers are usually not very good and (c) I love, love, love Maynard and I didn't want to hate it. I really like it. Thanks for bringing it to my attention. 😉
