Musical Digression

So here’s the pitch: Finnish roots band covers AC/DC’s “Thunderstruck.”

Sound interesting? No? Well, sorry, but you’re wrong.

First, for you youngsters who don’t know the song, here’s AC/DC from 1990.

Now here’s the Steve ‘n Seagulls cover, from 2014.

The official video had been viewed over 15 million times. In just over a year.

I’m a big fan of bluegrass, Americana, roots - whatever you want to call it, I know it when I hear it. The fact that a form of music born and bred in the American outland is booming in Europe and around the world is just fantastic.
