Our favourite Alabama country-rocker Jason Isbell (as he describes himself on Twitter: “friend to children, the vaccinated, and those with certain underlying medical conditions”) performed a cover of The Rolling Stones’ 1969 classic ‘Gimme Shelter’ over the weekend, dedicating it to the late Charlie Watts, who died last week at the age of 80. He was joined by his band The 400 Unit and tour mate Brittney Spencer, Isbell taking the lead with vocals and a couple of epic guitar solos, while Spencer sang backup vocals between verses. Watch a crowd recording of it below.
