No one's ever replicated Fripp's guitar part very well.

It has a soaring quality missing from the warbling Bowie original!

Bowie’s Hero’s always sounded so weird to me... my daughter used to listen to it to fall asleep (for real, weird right?), so I listened to it a TON when she was a baby. The guitar layering is interesting but also feels sort of lazy and sloppy at parts. I’m a big Bowie fan and it’s a great song in general but I always though his original production/mix was way out of left field. Felt like I could easily do that with a bunch of layers, some delay and an Ebow just goofing around

Best version is actually Bowie in the 90s covering Bowie from the 70s:
