Tony from LondonHello ... the original by Ian Hunter, is still a masterpiece, need to not mess approximately via brilliance Ray from Grandsee OhioThere are many kind of songs that were composed and percreated by the original person/group. Just review more and also Wikipedia write-ups to learn. You will be amazed and surprised at the history and truth of musicians and also the music.Lecia Carr from Houston TxGreat Song!!Doug from Phoenix, AzMick Ronson"s solo erupts through his wah-wah moved Les Paul spewing fire in Rock & Roll glory. Seriously, Hunter / Ronboy was THE article glam super-team. Fantastic song in eexceptionally way. RIP Mick Peter from EnglandIt"s a shame Great White wimped out and adjusted the lyric from "My ideal frifinish told me you"re the best TRICK in town" to the the sensemuch less "finest LICK in town".Rhonda from KentuckyI have constantly loved Great White"s version. Honestly I didn"t know this was a cover. So I made a decision to listen to Ian"s original and also I loved it. Tony from Ft.lauderdaleHaving been a vast Mott the Hoople and also likewise Mick Ronchild fan I prefer the original variation, but the Great White variation introduced the song to a broader audience, and also for that I"m greatful. In reality I just observed Great White open up last night for Vince Neil, and also they did this song as their encore. I sing together with both versions whenever before I hear it.Joe from UsaI"ve heard garage bands execute much better covers of Once Bitten, Twice Shy...Great White"s cover is eextremely little as lame as Quiet Riot"s cover of Cum On Feel The Noize.But who expects the "Duh!" generation to recognize better?Bill from Bowling Green, OhTo all of you that have sassist the Gr.White version is better I say you don"t know excellent music. No one, and I expect no one deserve to do this tune much better than the Master himself, Ian Hunter!Peter from London, United KingdomThe Hunter variation is an original piece of work. The Great White version is a copy, through nopoint brand-new carried to the song. You pays your money and you takes your option, however I favor the genuine thing. As for voices, nobody, but nobody, sings choose Ian Hunter, favor him or not.Anita from Gotham City, United KingdomI just heard Once Bitten Twice Shy on the radio - I knew it directly ameans from the intro, I loved this once it came out and also am really pleased that I remembered (in addition to a lot of of the words) it was Ian Hunter without Mott, although I hadn"t realised Mick Ronson was on it also - also a hero since I observed David Bowie being Ziggy at Hammersmith Odeon in 1973. I"ve never heard one more version of this song. It"s exceptionally English, but I intend I"ll give the american version a listen.Ed from Canton, OhIan Hunter"s voice is an gained taste. I personally favor the exceptionally British sound. I am surprised all the write-ups here are from the States, that is why there is favoritism towards Great White.Markshark from Denver, CoIan Hunter possesses a unique flair for nuance, and also merged with his eccentric talent it provides a depth of interpretive performance which is greatly inaccessible to, and also totally unnoticeable by, new-age rock punks - that are bereft of any type of redeeming or substantial musical taste whatsoever before. Great White"s overbearing and stiff 2-dimensional reading of this hit succeeds in robbing Ian"s obscure jewel and also hawking it to a naive 80"s audience that ignorantly lap-up moronic hair band also pap through the self-deluded belief they are consuming genuine wholesome music. Although I"m sure it"s normally nice to acquire royalties (I hope Hunter gottem) and also exposure/credit for penning a decent song, Great White"s pretend/plastic version is no more delicious, and barely more memorable, than a corpoprice grocery store birthday cake - which accounts for the WINCING REFLEX exhibited here by older fans.The Hunter/Ronchild pairing is among Rock"s Most Overlooked/Underrated Duos Of All Time, which demonstrates all the ability, subtlety, and accomplishment that Great White and also its fans were never intellectual enough to ever dream - let alone have actually any type of awareness - of. Yeah, Great White"s throwameans rendition fills the bill IF you desire to switch your brain off and also rock out to 110 decibels of wild youthful abandon - but just True Music connoisseurs would have the ability to appreciate the exceptional depth and also musicianship readily available by the Ian Hunter/Mick Ronkid original. Take a listen of Ian Hunter"s LIVE, Welcome To The Club -- tright here are more valid musical recordings here than in the entire output of the Hair-Sex Band Craze (which prospered out of the Glam scene which Ian Hunter/Mott the Hoople assisted create) combined! Sorry to kick on you hearty Great White fans, yet their version CANNOT intoxicatedly hold a Bic lighter of a candle to Ian Hunter"s -- in fact, what"s more: just the integral toughness of Hunter"s original complace could permit it to survive intact enough to supply a hit, despite the ghastly sophomoric reading that Great White subjected it to!!! Without Ian Hunter - and a stupid fire-bug road manager - Great White would certainly be an unknown fleck on the landscape of Rock; and also WITH the previously mentioned, Great White amounts to merely an overexposed FLASH IN THE PAN (pun intended).Jim from Long Beach, CaI love Ian"s much better that Great White"s version. Ian is a good songwriter. I hope he plays this in his Mott reunion mirrors. Even thou he did this in his solo years..Paul from Rothesay, Nb, CanadaI"m with the Ian Hunter fans on this one. When David Foster told Neil Young he was a bit off crucial, Neil sassist "That"s my style". Having said that, Ian"s voice simply has a lot of character. A shame that Great White turned this into a generic hair band romp.Eugene from Minneapolis, MnAre you kidding me? Ian"s variation is sickening in an extremely negative adjective. Ian sounds very much off essential on this performance. Yeah, he wrote, but it doesn"t intend that he gets to sing it. How demeaning! Great White took this song to new heights. I had actually no idea this was a cover till currently. I did not even finish listening to the original for it was past horrid. Now that"s LAME, hugely.Dennis from Orlanperform, FlI have actually been listening to this song since the ORIGINAL release by Ian Hunter in 1975. Tright here have actually been numerous covers, and also none of them meacertain up! Great White"s version? It absolutely SUCKS! Played side by side, the Hunter/Ronchild combo cannot be matched! Great White"s attempt is at finest LAME! Velvetnose from Memphis, TnIan Hunter"s variation of the song is much exceptional to Great White"s (weak, but still thankful) version. Fact is the guitar is a lot more significant than the drums and Mick Ronboy absolutely was a phenom on this number. Nora from Orlanexecute, FlI really love this songboth by Ian HUnter &by Great White thier cover "Rocks"Max from Laconia, NhI carry out agree.
