        Came here expecting to down vote, as covering Layne can be a mighty challenge. You did good though. 🤘

          The title comes from Alice in Chains guitarist-songwriter Jerry Cantrell's father. "Rooster" was his nickname in Vietnam, where he fought in the war. ... The song is about resilience, as the soldier get sent off to war, leaving a wife and child behind. He watches his friend die, and does his best to stay alive.

                      Yo brotha, u really should do a rock cover album, with some of your own original shit thrown in there as well....this is def one of the best covers I've heard of "Rooster", probably best version since Layne passed (RIP).....well done sir....salute o7
