    Duane Allman plays guitar on this as a session musician - when Clapton heard it he asked his manager to find out who the guitarist was, as he explains here

    Not strictly a cover version maybe, but this young girl covers the drum parts of many songs. I recommend checking her other stuff out. She's only 14 years old in her earlier videos.
