Info about song
Knockin' on Heaven's Door is a song written and performed by Bob Dylan for the soundtrack of the 1973 film Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid. It reached #12 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart. In 2004, representatives of the music industry and the press voted it #190 in Rolling Stone magazine's 500 Greatest Songs of All Time issue. Although it was originally recorded as an acoustic folk song, "Knockin' On Heaven's Door" has been covered extensively in many styles, most famously by British blues-rocker Eric Clapton and by American hard-rock group Guns N' Roses. Eric Clapton recorded a version of the song in June 1975 and released it as a single later that year, two years after Dylan's version was released. Live recordings from this era can be found on official Clapton releases such as 1996's Crossroads 2: Live in the Seventies, which features a London performance from April 1977. The song was not included on a full-length album until the release of the 1982 compilation Time Pieces: The Best of Eric Clapton. In 1989, Clapton and David Sanborn backed singer Randy Crawford in a new version recorded for the soundtrack of the film Lethal Weapon 2. Read more on Last.fm.
