    Guns n Roses did Knock knock knockin on heavens door.
    I believe Clapton did a cover, true or false ?
    I also think it was originally written and performed by Dylan, True or false ?
    I know I could probably do a googlie search but I thought it would be good to stretch my virtual friends grey matter...
     
  2. True. Dylan wrote it and both Clapton and Guns 'n' Roses covered it.

    Don't think so, but he did do I shot the sheriff, which was also covered by Clapton.

    Marley wrote I Shot The Sheriff rather than 'doing it'. Although I think it is based on a traditional arrangement

    The Original by Dylan is on the 'Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid' soundtrack album, which is well worth a listen. One thing you notice when listening to the original is how flippin' short it is - almost over before it's started!
