Brian May sings Rainbow

This blog post the first in a new series I'll be doing on great cover versions of classic songs. Now I have an admission to make. This song wasn't a hit in the '80s. It was just ahead of the decade in '79. But the band that made it a hit (Rainbow) were big in the '80s and the man doing the cover (Brian May) was part of one of the biggest of all bands at the time - Queen. So I think I may be allowed to cheat a bit. The song Since You Been Gone was actually written in 1976 by Russ Ballard. You can can Ballard's performance HERE. The definitive Rainbow version is HERE. And this is Brian May's version...
