Hello everyone.
Looking through youtube for covers I came across this.
This person claims to have re recorded every single part of the track from scratch.
Its a big claim to make. I believe it to be a remixed/edited version of the original backing track with added vocals.

Copy and paste the link and tell me what you think.
Immense talent or fraud?





Innuendo or Kashmir? Both awesome!

It's a combination of both:
He took the original backing track (Queen's version), and it sounds like he re-recorded a couple parts using alternative instruments. Plus those are his vocals.
It should read: "TATTOOL cover (with alternative instrumentation + Original backing track)

It is definitely re-recorded. No use of the original backing track. Yes, the music may sound very close to the original, but if you listen to it closely side by side with the original, it is clearly not exactly the same. Besides, there are no multi-tracks of this song available so how would he have isolated some tracks from the original and then re-recorded others?

So, in conclusion, a talented musician, not a fake!

Cheers

The only thing he could've done was taking the conga loop from the beginning of the song and use it for his own recording. But also that was remade.


Terrific job!

Toby DID indeed play and record all these parts himself. It is very amusing hearing people speaking with such authority about it being a mix of original and recorded parts......

It is a great compliment to him to hear that people feel that he used Queen bits in it as that does show that his effort was worth it. He is a great multi-instrumentist and also very young too......very talented.

"Dieses Video enthält Content von EMI. Es ist in deinem Land nicht mehr verfügbar"

Whatever this video and recording may contain, it has been taken off for viewers in Europe by EMI as it "features content of EMI"...

Well, EMI are really out of order with that. It certainly doesn't feature "content of EMI", other than it being a cover version.

But EMI does have every legal right to do what they like, it's only blocked in germany.

So, does that mean that my 'The Millionaire Waltz' and all the other 'covers' on the Stage of Champions will be subject to being blocked? Similarly they may now also wish to remove my You Tube tutorials of Queen???
