Glad he's ok, stoked to see him open for Yellowcard. Loved his full-band covers of "Understanding in a Car Crash" and "Great Romances of the 20th Century" last month.
it's not a cover if he wrote the song, it's a rendition. Not sure if you realize that because you say cover all the time.
Edit: Also, obviously my thoughts go out to Geoff in what is undoubtedly a trying and scary time.
