Angel came down from Heaven yesterday
She stayed with me just long enough to rescue me
And she told me a story yesterday
About the sweet love between the moon and the deep blue sea

    The artist your actually hearing was my buddy Corby Yates. He passed away on September 24th 2012 at 31 years of Age. I know most of these comments are negative about the Angel Cover he did. Corby was a huge Jimi fan, In fact , he won the national Jimi Hendrix Guitar Competition when he was a Junior in High School. Corby started playing guitar at 6 and I had the honor of seeing him perform live 35 times. Everyone whos a fan of Hendrix and would like to see what Corby could do live should go to YouTube and type in : Amazing Guitarist Corby Yates. What your about to see and hear will really blow your mind. Corby was one of the greatest blues rock guitarists to ever live. In fact, I know that Corby was disappointed with the comments on this board and he felt really bad when he read them. Please give him a chance to show you what he could do. Go to YouTube, Type In : Amazing Guitarist Corby Yates
