Pop and Jazz singer Norah Jones has done some pretty amazing covers over the years, but none so perfect as her spine-tingling take on ‘Patience’ by Guns N Roses. Stuck at home due to self-quarantine from Coronavirus, Jones shared her piano and guitar cover to Twitter on Thursday 3/19/2020. She is also using the track to raise money for charity for both Feeding America and Musicares so that rules as well. You can watch/hear the cover and also donate in the link below. Jones’new album ones recently announced plans to release her new LP Pick Me Up Off the Floor, due out May 8th.
Ghost Cult caught up with Last In Line frontman Andrew Freeman a few months back to discuss the goings-on with the group, and all the ways the band made up mostly of former Ronnie James Dio’s DIO band work hard to preserve his legacy.

We spoke to Andrew about how the group formed, the depth and songwriting of their 2019 album II (Frontiers Records SRL), opening for UFO, his approach to singing, and the band’s plans for their third album, already underway.

After the success of the first one, and acting as a nice stop gap between albums, comes Back to Blues Vol. 2 (Mascot Records) – Black Stone Cherry’s second EP covering blues standards from years gone by.
