I always forget how great this cover is. I think it's one of Billy's best and most emotional vocal performances, and I'm honestly surprised that he wasn't too self-aggrandizing to release a cover of an already famous song as a single.

I agree completely. It tops the original version and the guitar solo is great (better than the guitar solo on the original version).

always loved it, and it's on the list of songs I kept hoping to hear live one day. but no luck.

not a single performance from 97 to 2008 (and not one outside NA and AU)

is landslide one of the songs he hated to play or something?

yeah it's my favorite thing on PI. i tried singing the original in karaoke once and got confused cause the pacing is different and determined I prefer it to the original as it turns out.
