Rod Stewart's 'Missing You' ... wait! what?!?

22

November

Missing You is one of those songs you can't hear enough. John Waite gets a lifetime pass in my book for this tune. But I'm not sure what to think of Rod Stewart's cover version, which I discovered accidentally today on YouTube.

Stewart recorded it for his 2006 covers album Still The Same ... Great Rock Classics of Our Time. But it lacks the gut-shredding angst that Waite inserts into his version. (And yes, I also am a fanatic for his duet version with Alison Krauss, even though it takes on more of a love-song attitude.)

So here's my theory: Rod Stewart should not be allowed to record any more cover albums until he produces another half dozen albums of original work. That'll keep the Young Turk busy for a while. Am I wrong?
