  1. Was Hendrix ever criticised for doing a cover of ‘Hey Joe’ and taking it to new heights. Will anyone say Joe Cocker’s version of ‘With a l’il help from my friends’ did injustice to the Beatles? How about GnR’s cover of ‘Dylan’s ‘knockin’ on heaven’s door?’ And what about Hollywood’s copy of France’s ‘Three Men and a Baby’ and the Swedish ‘Girl with the dragon tattoo’? So why all this ruckus about ‘Barfi?’
    Personally I think Bollywood deserves kudos for doing covers of movies from around the world. They put their soul and heart into it, much like Hendrix did to the Troggs’ ‘Wild Thing” with strains of Sinatra’s ‘Stranger’s in the Night’ added in – so very cool!
