    It's official. We decided on "Run for Cover." 5 out of 6 of us are former or active military, and I would say more than one of us has run for cover a few times over the past 17 years. We are also a cover band. Voila - Run for Cover it is.

    The songs we've got down so far:

    Remedy - Black Crowes
    Hard to Handle - Black Crowes (Otis Redding)
    Cheap Sunglasses - ZZ Top
    Mustan Sally - Wilson Pickett
    Shooting Star - Bad Company
    Young Lust - Pink Floyd
    Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd
    Highway to Hell - AC/DC
    Back in Black - AC/DC
    Hot Blooded - Foreigner

    More to follow soon. [​IMG]

    I recommend not doing Mustang Sally.
    ;)
    I’m jealous, though. My job keeps me from joining/starting a band with my friends. I really wish I could do more than the “get together and jam” thing.

    Run for Cover...I like that name though.

    I am with you guys on Mustang Sally. It is like punch line of cover tunes, but I am also not in charge. :)

    That said, because we're going to have the 12 string out for Wish You Were Here, I've suggested we add Zeppelin's Tangerine and the Stones' Wild Horses. The fellas are game. (And of course, somebody else suggested Tom Petty's Learning to Fly. Not totally enthusiastic about that because it's a well beaten horse of a cover song too, but it's better than Mustang Sally. :p )

    It's a bluesy song for all 70 year old pale people who know no other blues songs. There will be butts shaking any time you play it. I try to avoid it, but it will work in a pinch.

    Good luck with the new band, OP!

    Play what your audience wants to hear. I f'ing hate Mustang Sally, just like every other cover band member.

    But, each and every time it gets played, the ladies are out there dancing & singing along.

    So, check your artistic creativity at the door. It's not about you.
