My Morning Jacket – Rocket Man (Live in 2012)

[Ed. Note: Last week, we brought Two For Tuesday back, and we’re picking up were we left off – about halfway through the alphabet, moving in reverse order. This week, we’re at M for My Morning Jacket.]

This is another great cover from My Morning Jacket – Elton John’s “Rocket Man”. The lead guitar player – Carl Broemel – is playing pedal steel, which gives this version its spacy sounds. Their new album – which does not include “Rocket Man” – is called The Waterfall and it was released yesterday. So it’s a great time to be celebrating My Morning Jacket, one of the most exciting rock bands out there today.
