I’m a day late getting BOTB Results posted but I’m finally here to tally the votes for the battle between The Rolling Stones and George Thorogood, jamming the great instrumental 2120 South Michigan Avenue.
The Stones original didn’t fare well in this battle. Could it have been the technology? Maybe. But I think the real clincher was the great Charlie Musselwhite’s skillful harmonica-playing in George Thorogood’s version. Many people commented that it was the harmonica that made them choose George’s version — and that goes for me too. That man can play!!
Rolling Stones: 5 votes
George Thorogood: 10 votes (including mine)
Thanks to the awesome Stephen McCarthy for lending me this really fun battle! And as always, thanks to all who participated. See you on the 15th for my next battle, which should be interesting…
