Bjørn Berge pays tribute to T. Rex

Music news

Rediscover the classic “Get it On” covered acoustically by Norwegian bluesman Bjørn Berge, featured in his next album.

Always armed with his acoustic guitar, the Norwegian bluesman Bjørn Berge continues to pay homage to the greatest. Discover his interpretation of “Get it On”, classic by T. Rex, via the player below:

Just like his cover of “Black Night” from Deep Purple, this new interpretation of the glam rock standard will be found in the Norwegian bluesman’s next album. Titled Introducing SteelFinger Slim, this disc will be released on January 26.

Interviewed by the editorial staff in 2021, he talked about the bluesmen who have influenced him in recent years: “I like musicians who play the devil’s music, like black American bluesmen did in the early 60s in juke joints. I have a certain feeling with guys like Popa Chubby who, in my opinion, continues this tradition. Stevie Ray Vaughan was a virtuoso in this register. He already embodied “the devil’s music” in his guitar playing. But the king of kings is Ry Cooder. He is an exceptional musician, a great songwriter and above all he is an immense slideman, the best of us without a doubt. On stage, Ry Cooder releases a vibration of emotions on the slide that is still unequaled today. I am a big fan. »
