Bass Cover #51: ROBERT TEPPER - No Easy Way Out

One of the most dramatic pop/rock songs from “Rocky IV” soundtrack, I'd say. Rocky is devastated by death of his best friend Apollo Creed mercilessly killed by Ivan Drago. He drives his car at night and recalls various moments of their friendship with Apollo and the fatal fight that put an end to his life. The song itself is very emotional and powerful, Robert Tepper did an awesome job here, so I'm not surprised so many bands (metal bands, lately) cover it all the time. Still, I can't understand why “No Easy Way Out” hasn't become a really big hit. It has only reached the 22nd place on the Billboard, but... it's ok, people are not perfect and sometimes they're deaf to the great music :)
