I'm sure the majority of you are already aware of this latest batch of Bowie covers, but it's good to catalogue these things anyway.
Elsewhere in the mag, the Aladdin Sane version of Let's Spend The Night Together is listed as one of the essential 50 download tracks this month. We've mentioned the album Paint It Black (from which the track is taken) on these pages a couple of times. (06.11.2006 NEWS: BOWIE TRACK ON STONES COVERS COMPILATION & 06.29.2006 NEWS: PAINT IT BLACK WEBSITE AND STONES TICKETS CONTEST)

Anyway, the band have now decided to include a live version of the track on one of the 7" issues of their forthcoming Hands single...so you'll be able to make up your own mind when it's released at the end of the month.
Finally, the reformed Guns N' Roses (who are as much Guns N' Roses as Velvet Revolver are) have also tackled Ziggy Stardust at recent live shows, which is very nice of Axl to give his former guitarist's ex-occasional babysitter a nod...but who really cares?
