Christopher Shayne loves Bob Dylan. As the frontman for his Arizona-based, eponymous band, Shayne can appreciate Dylan’s mastery.
And he admits Dylan covers outrank the original.
“Anytime someone takes one of his songs and redoes it, it ends up better than his,” says Shayne. “’All Along the Watchtower’ by Jimi Hendrix, ‘The Times They Are a-Changin” by Keb’ Mo’, and on and on.”
Perhaps it should be no surprise then that Shayne’s newest hit is a Southern rock take on “Bad Guy” the chart-topping song originally by Billie Eilish. ED Magazine spoke with Shayne — on behalf of StripJointsMusic.com — about his version of “Bad Guy”, livestreaming shows, and ping pong.
