Watch: Feist lets off some steam to the strains of Guns ‘n’ Roses’ ‘November Rain’

01.03.12 6 years ago

Canadian singer-songwriter Feist may be known for crafting light-as-air indie pop singles, but she showed a different side of herself when deciding to take out her aggressions on an innocent pinata during a recent concert in Mexico City. Playing as the background music to the “1234” singer’s destructive episode? A cover version of Guns ‘n’ Roses’ epic 1991 rock ballad “November Rain”, as rendered by her backing band.

It’s a pretty good rendition, I must say; the woeful strains of Slash’s searing guitar riff never fail to transport me back to a period in my youth when the music video was in heavy rotation on MTV. 

Speaking of Slash…is that the guitar god himself making an entrance around the :40 mark? If only! But hey, I do love the hairpiece.
