    I absolutely love this cover of I Won’t Back Down by Terry Ilous and Jack Russell! It’s always refreshing to hear hard rock vocalists pay tribute to classic songs like this. Terry’s journey from France to Hollywood and his work with XYZ is truly inspiring, and I can’t wait to hear their new music. It’s also exciting to see him touring with so many legendary rock musicians. Keep on rockin’!
