I always wonder how a band feels when one of their songs gets covered. For example, in the case of Limp Bizkit covering George Michael’s song, “Faith” he was not pleased. According to guitarist Wes Borland, Michael hated the cover and hates Limp Bizkit for doing it.
However in the case of Ozzy Osbourne and Lita Ford, they don’t have to worry about their cover of “Close My Eyes Forever being butchered. David Draiman’s side project, Device recently released the cover of “Close My Eyes Forever” with Halestorm lead singer, Lizzy Hale. It is a phenomenal cover of the song and Hale is the perfect counterpart with her incredibly powerful voice and range. Take a listen below:
Here is Draiman talking about the song:
