Axl Rose has been beaten at his own song, and Slash could never handle a sitar like this guy.

Ah well, you`ll stick by your opinion, and I`ll stick by my opinion. We`ll never agree on this, so let`s just shake hands, and move on. It`s just not worth quarreling over the internet anyway, especially given this:


Love, Pabasa.

No, just no.
Your whole argument falls apart with this simple statement: This version was crap.

It didn`t do the original any justice at all. Hence my analogy of vomiting on the painting.

If it had been done by the Chinese Orchestra then yes, it would be like the Picasso analogy. But fact is that these people did an amature copy of an amazing song and, well, failed.

Legacy15, don`t get into other peoples debates. Theres no need for it to be honest. GnR are one of the greatest bands of all time...and comparing them to a deceased artist is just stupid.

Why should I pull the racism card? I`m sure you`d do the same if it was Sweet Child `o Mine being played by tribal african instruments, or played by Chinese Orchestra.

Right, put it this way: THe original song was great, it`s unique and excellent, and no matter how many great artists sing the song, it will never replace the original. People can, however, play the song in a different way, which allows us to see the song in a new light, and see the merits of the song on its own.

In your given example vomiting on a Van Gogh is a wrong analogy. I`d say it`s more like Picasso repainting The Sunflower. The sunflower is still Van Gogh`s work of art, but Picasso would have given it his own quirky style, angles and all that. It won`t beat Van Gogh`s sunflower; everyone will still recognize the picture as Van Gogh`s, no matter what artist paints it. But Picasso`s version would probably be pretty, in Picasso`s way.

...and Pabasa, I`ve never had a problem with you before, but calling me close-minded when you really don`t know me at all is just stupid.

I`m surprised you didn`t pull the racism card on me.

It was trash...its like stupid `art` these days.

It`s like you do anything that`s crap and suddenly it becomes brilliant and influencial.

When really at the core of it, it`s just utter rubbish.

Lets put it this way...I take a copy of Van Goghs Sunflowers and vomit over it...does that make it good?

Just like this, it would be trash.

Hey hey hey, tiguno, just because I don`t jump on every bandwagon and listen to every band I`m supposed too doesn`t mean that I have bad taste in music. Now, GTFO and listen to your Linkin Park or Green day or whatever poo band you listen to.

Here it is at YouTube.

There`s more info there. Apparently it`s an advertisement or whatever for channel "V". Thus the text at the end of the video "Ve are all Rock Stars."

Sorry for the double post--just found this and don`t feel like copying, pasting, deleting, etc.

I loved this! The fact that they use many more notes than traditional Western music (or is it tones?) is way cool, too. Definitely made some for some bad ass lead singing and very cool sound! Rock on, dudes!

ConverseUK, shove it.
You don`t have to like it, but you don`t have to be a dick about it either.
I thought it was great. I`ll admit, the singing confused me slightly, but it`s supposed to be in the INDIAN style. Seriously.

ConverseUK, if you`re as close minded as that, even with such people playing the music wonderfully (actually giving a lot of respect to the song), then please, go hurt yourself. Fatally.

This is so awesome! I don`t like GNR too much, but I think that Sweet Child o`Mine is an awesome piece of music, and this was an outstanding version of it! Does anyone by the way know any songs that sound like this, like Indian stuff? I tried to google something like "Indian sitar music" or something like that, but I could find anything that would sound quite like this.
