7. It's Patti Smith,

also known as "The Godmother of Punk."

Though the album this is from, "Twelve," is something of a departure.

Other covers on the album include the Stones' "Gimmie Shelter," and Hendrix: "Are You Experienced."

I like this cut because you don't often run into covers of Harrison's Indian influenced songs. To me it brings out the beauty of the melody, which often gets overlooked because of the instrumentation and philosophical lyrics.

She does a similar thing with Dylan's "Changing of the Guard." Stripped of the background vocals and big band instrumentation, the song itself comes into a better focus.

My humble opinion, for what it's worth.

Anyway, no need to apologize. I thought the comment was a hoot!
