Andrew Stockdale checked in with his Twitter followers (@positron76) earlier this evening, revealing that after posting a Wolfmother cover of ‘Easy Lover’ by Phil Collins on YouTube, the video sharing site shut down band’s account down. The singer writes:
Due to our Phil Collins “Easy Lover” cover the Wolfmother YouTube channel has been shut down!
That is YouTube shut us down! Very strange?
We don’t know if it’s copyright or the bare breasted 70’s painting, either way they ain’t feeling the love …
Well it’s official we are banned from YouTube due to Phil Collins Easy Lover cover, kind of hilarious!
We’re going to Vimeo as we speak!
