Cool "Madman Across The Water" - acoustic Brandi Carlisle!

Got this link from Bob Lefsetz's blog the other day. Never really been a fan of Brandi's work, more from not hearing her than anything else - wasn't she in an all-girl band decades ago?

In any case, THIS is wonderful! A very credible cover of a not-so-easy-song-to-cover... live, on the Howard Stern Show!

I still don't know why I only get the link and not the opening picture/ large format to just play and watch? Sigh...

I think you’re thinking of Belinda Carlisle, from the Go-Go’s

Heard several versions of her doing that tune over the years and they've all been good. She also covers Elton's Sixty Years On.

I've been a Brandi fan since the Acoustic EP came out in '05 or so - when I heard this tune, I was hooked and had to learn it and work it into my show!

I have listened to her first interviews with Howard. Definitely worth a look at how she came to be. She covered CSN "Helplessly Hoping" and has a great backstory where Stephen Stills in in the audience when she performed it once. She also lives up on a ranch in the PACNORWEST near a few of the PJ members. Stone Gossard's family and her family spend time together when not touring. A new better version of Jewel from the 2000's. She is pretty awesome.

I really dig Brandi Carlile. She is the real deal. Thanks for posting this. I also liked that they mic'd the guitars and did not use pickups. Sounds great!

That was awesome, BC has steadily grown into my “must listen” list.
