Live Ledge #97: Tributes

On my way to work the other day, I heard the song "Steve Earle" by Lydia Loveless, and immediately knew what Live Ledge needed to be this week. Nothing but songs about other artists. Some of these are actual tributes, while others are maybe not quite so reverential.
Unfortunately, my choices were more limited than usual, as the day before the show my entire library vanished in the haze of a faulty networked drive. While a wonderful friend is tirelessly working on restoring this mess, there is a good chance that I may be taking a bit of a hiatus while this is sorted out.
