The 10 Best Covers of Jimi Hendrix Songs
We pick the 10 best covers of Jimi Hendrix songs, featuring SRV, Jeff Beck and The Cure.
03. Jeff Beck and Seal, “Manic Depression”
It’s hard to believe Jeff Beck is only a few degrees separated from the Bravo TV show Project Runway, but it’s true; in the early ‘90s, Beck recorded a few tunes with Project Runway host Heidi Klum’s ex-husband, Seal. The best of the batch is this manic version of “Manic Depression” from Stone Free, the aforementioned 1993 Hendrix tribute album.
Perhaps feeling the version they’d originally concocted was a little too close to the original, they added a powerful breakdown section that allowed Beck and his Strat to throw everything but the kitchen sink into the mix. It’s a fitting tribute from one over-the-top ‘60s guitar god to another. Well designed, indeed.
