Single Saturdays: Nicola Ciccone – Wanted Dead or Alive Cover

Canadian singer Nicola Ciccone has uploaded on Youtube a cover of Bon Jovi’s hit song “Wanted Dead or Alive.” The story is about a cowboy who’s on the run and is wandering from town to town.

The music is country with some hints of pop. Nicola Ciccone does an impressive job at covering this song. The guitar rhythm in this song is phenomenal. The beat of Nicola Ciccone’s version has mostly guitar playing in the background, whereas Bon Jovi’s version has a variety of instruments (including guitar).
Nicola Ciccone’s voice is husky, raspy (like Rod Stewart) and raw in this cover of Wanted Dead or Alive. His singing of it is similar to Jon Bon Jovi’s vocal style. However, Nicola Ciccone voice goes up to a slightly higher register. He has his take of the song and didn’t try to imitate the original version, which makes it authentic.

Nicola Ciccone next album comes out March 2019.
