  • Justin Todd

    she lists a song she appeared on as her top cover songs what shameless self promotion

    • Danneskjold Repossessions

      If you don’t like what you do, then what’s the point?

      • Carlo Capoferri

        The list is quite ok but………..wheres AC/DC?

    • Richie

      If she was really trying to “shamelessly self promote” herself, don’t you think she would have picked a song from one of Halestorm’s 2 cover EPs! The fact that NONE of those are on the list proves that her choice had nothing to do with self promotion!

      • Justin Todd

        She is still on that song so yes it is self promotion

        • Chris Crocker

          Considering the the song is on devices album she wont really get anything out of trying to promote it

          • Sean L.

            It’s just tacky and self aggrandizing. Especially when you’re putting yourself (even with something you were helping another band do) above legendary covers done by legends.

          • Chris Crocker

            Could be her favorite cause she had so much fun doing it and working with Dave Draiman who is highly regarded in the industry.(whether you like him or not is your opinion and not the point) I mean she has done plenty of other covers before and none of them made the list. She even put a different adrenaline mob cover on the list rather than the one she did with them. (come Undone)

          • Sean L.

            I’m a huge Disturbed fan, and I dig Disturbed as well as the song in question. I’m sure she has her reasons, but I still think it’s tacky. It’s a good cover, but it’s not even on the level of covers David did with Disturbed. (Shout 2000, Land of Confusion and ISHFWILF are three of my absolute favorite cover songs).

          • Chris Crocker

            Yea it is a bit tacky but i just think people are being too hard on her for choosing it. I do love that cover but I dont think Dave did great on it (good but not great) Lzzy sounded amazing on it though.

          • Sean L.

            I’m a huge Disturbed fan, and I dig Device as well as the song in question. I’m sure she has her reasons, but I still think it’s tacky. It’s a good cover, but it’s not even on the level of covers David did with Disturbed. (Shout 2000, Land of Confusion and ISHFWILF are three of my absolute favorite cover songs).

    Chris Cornell’s “Billie Jean”…greateast solo perfomance EVER! Nice list Lzzy, pretty much every song’s a killer!

    Lzzy as always slammed it !! Great list

  • http://www.theworks.whyambitworks.com/ Tony Work

    As far as self promotion comment below.. I am sure if you have ever met Lzzy you would know she is about as grounded as grounded gets. My guess … she picked this one because she liked the mix … loved the recording of it …or just thought it kicked a$$$$$$ either way .. Her prerogative her list and her rules !! Bout time you guys come back home for the holidays … AINT IT ???? :)

  • Connie F. Mueller Bellucci

    Has Lzzy ever met Lita? That would be interesting!

  • Robert Johns

    Never was a fan of Doro, but the rest of the list kicked ass.

    • danielle

      Doro kicks ass too.

      • Robert Johns

        Hey if you like her that’s great, she doesn’t do anything for me though.

  • brockng

    Hmm… So she thinks a Device song is better than Jimi Hendrix “All along the watchtower”?
    That right there is reason enough for me to not bother listening to her band.

  • danielle

    Love Doro’s cover of White Wedding.
