And really so do we. I mean, couldn't you see this guy getting stoned before his shift at the coop? Playing a little acoustic "Redemption Song" around a fire pit in J Tree? In Little Roy vs. Nirvana the legendary reggae singer takes on both "Sliver" and "Dive" off of Nirvana’s 1990 7-inch single. Roy's rendition of "Sliver" gets by on the novelty, but "Dive" is a truly stellar cover—there are moments where, when he repeats Dive with me/ Dive with me over and again, you can hear the echoes of Cobain's strained screams and imagine what might have been if he'd taken a different musical path.
