I’m in a holiday, gift-giving sort of mood this evening and was so glad to see this notice from the folks working the media magic behind The Dead Daisies. It seems that the guys have recorded an acoustic version of John Lennon’s classic “Happy Xmas (War Is Over)” while on tour and I’m sharing the bands official words and then the song itself. Dig it.
“This one’s for you… The Daisies have been overwhelmed by the great fan reactions throughout the year and especially on this last tour. So when they found themselves in a Christmas spirit in Vienna the other day, they recorded a special treat in Doug’s hotel room. This is a gift for you, the best fans in the world. Happy XMas & Happy Holidays from The Dead Daisies!”
I’ve always loved this track myself and think that the band did an outstanding job on it. Its super nice of them to offer it up for free and I am sure those of you who are more technically savvy will know how to save this to your respective music library or cloud service. Had this been an actual for sale single I would have stressed that you lay down the sufficient coin to own your own legit version. Nice work Dead Daisies, I look forward to seeing you rock the venues again in 2017. Merry Christmas.
