I’ve always maintained that a good song easily transcends genre. To be honest though, I never considered that the Motörhead classic Ace of Spades could be anything other than a loud rock and roll song.
I was wrong.
Good friend of The Omnivore, Señor Von Henzke, shot this video of Chris Caddell performing Ace of Spades on slide guitar. It totally works. A really cool idea, well executed by Chris.
Two somewhat surprised thumbs up.
All along, all I’ve really wanted to be is a writer. So now I tell people that’s what I am, even though I haven’t earned a dime being a writer.
That being said, I’ll confess that once a day, every day, I wish I was still a musician. That was the one time in my life when I was cool.
