GIVING THANKS: "Knockin' On Heaven's Door"

For Thanksgiving this week I thought I'd give a shout out to a song or an artist I was thankful for. After hours of debating, I settled on the song Knocking on Heaven's Door. It was originally written by Bob Dylan for Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid (song begins about 1:30)

A favorite of mine and so many, its no wonder this jam is covered by basically every artist on the globe. Theres a version of this song for everyone and you could literally spend days on youtube listening to renditions. Personally, aside from the original, I have to pick Guns N Roses as my favorite but they all bring something new to the table. Check out some of these others below. What's your favorite?

Mungo Jerry

Eric Clapton


Guns N Roses

Bon Jovi

Bruce Springsteen

Ladysmith Black Mambazo w/ Dolly Parton

Christopher Denny w/ Graham Wilkinson

Bob Dylan w/ Roger McGuin
