Guns N’ Roses Cover “Wichita Lineman”

Throughout their Not in This Lifetime reunion tour, Guns N’ Roses have been peppering their nearly three-hour performances with some well-chosen covers. Axl Rose is fond of weaving in the Who’s “The Seeker” into the encore and teasing Derek and the Dominos’ “Layla” during “November Rain,” while Slash and second guitarist Richard Fortus have been tag teaming Pink Floyd’s “Wish You Were Here.” Soundgarden’s “Black Hole Sun” has now become a set staple following the death of Chris Cornell in May. But during Wednesday night’s show in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, the band debuted their most unexpected cover of the tour: a faithful version of Glen Campbell’s “Wichita Lineman.”
