Imagine, if you will, a world of classic rock without “Stairway To Heaven” or “Smoke On the Water.” It almost happened. But, it didn’t thanks to a young English artist who turned down offers to join Led Zeppelin and Deep Purple in order to fulfill contractual obligations. It didn’t make him a rich kid but probably gave him the blues.

Today’s cover comes from a roguish band of musicians whose uber-talented frontman is a jack of all trades and seemingly had a thing for red and white clothing.
