A long, long time ago in a universe that seems very far away now (2006), you couldn’t go anywhere without hearing Gnarls Barkley’s Crazy.
If there’s any justice in this world, that will happen again, this time courtesy of Shadow & the Thrill. There are only two of them. On vocals and guitar is the bass-player Tony Cardenas-Montana who’s played with Great White and Slash and a drummer and keyboard man Brentt James Arcement, who has played with Fiona Apple among others.
Loudersound.com says its, “A bluesy cover that’s good enough to make Slash jealous and raise the ghost of Gary Moore. In the hands of S&TT, it’s a huge, soulful, swinging blues song, with great guitar playing and an amazing vocal from Tony.”

The duo describes itself as a “modern, blues-infused, groove-laden, hook-filled melodic rock band that comes from the streets of Los Angeles and New Orleans,
bringing you songs of salvation to soothe the soul.”
