I was reading an article about Al DiMeola's covering another Beatles tune. He did one at the Winery some months back. I had fond memories of Frank Sinatra doing a beautiful version of Something back @the Meadowlands Arena in '87(?). I've heard some winners and experienced some losers and a quite a few in between. I wonder if there's a band more covered?

The sincerest form of flattery is playing ones tunes, then here's a couple recent tributes...

Al DiMeola - She's Leaving Home (I think the solo part has dribbles of a few tunes? Is it just noodlin', but I hear There's A Place For Us, when the others join in it's She's Leaving)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pqgYf6-giiA

Marcus King - Dear Prudence
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RAq2dUILPDw

Tommy Emmanuel - Beatles Medley (I had to)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ONoXrKTF2Gg

Both of these might be my all-time favorite covers of Beatles songs...

The Mermen - Within You Without You - https://youtu.be/KVizHMuGdXM

Shoot, am always knotting up the threads, on topic tho Sam Phillipsí take of Gimme Some Truth, from her early 1990s CD - tremendous & the Beatles cover I think of 1st & 4most even tho itís John

Of course heís well known for Help from my Friends but I also like Joe Cockerís take of SCITTBWindow

It was sorta scoffed at at the time but I like Eltonís cover of LITSWDiamonds

Good one Brer, hadnít heard that before - of course Greggís take of Rain w/the London choir comes to mind in the same vein

Itís not just knotting up threads, can be a wet blanket too - but one that does sorta underwhelm me is JBís Sheís A Woman, from Blow by Blow - tried to like it but even w/the talk box effect etc, didnít really hold my interest

Aerosmithís covers, Come Together & Helter Skelter are Ok-not-great imo

I think Joe Cocker just slays every Beatles cover he's done. In addition to those already mentioned I'd like to add Something and Sir Paul's Maybe I'm Amazed.

I always thought this was pretty interesting by Jake Shimabukuro https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qw6YL_l2YxA

Tedeschi Trucks does a great "Within You Without You"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pGyf9yc7c_w

I've always really dug the short instrumental "Flying" (the only Beatles song credited to all four) and The Secret Machines do a cool version:

I dig the obscure clips posted, I doubt I'd bump into them otherwise, Thanx.

I love Jeff Healey's version of WMGGW!

Oasis played a great version of I Am The Walrus for a show at Radio City Music Hall during the Brotherly Love tour.




Martin Barre played ER and I Want You/(She's So Heavy) a couple years back.

The Persuasions gave Let It Be their acapella love on one of their early 1970s albums

Also Arthur Conley w/ObLaDi ObLaDa - Duane plays lead & rhythm

Love seeing the Deep Purple threads, just listened to Throw My Bones
Their cover of Help is really how a song w/lyrics like that should sound - Jon Lord, what a monster player he was

I'm a buffoon, I was going thru videos and was amazed how many times the Stones were covered by others. I also DVR'd and was watching the Chuck Berry special called Brown Eyed Handsome Man that is making the rounds on the PBS stations, It's way better than Hail Hail Rock N Roll. Great footage of Chuck and multi legend covering his tunes, I really enjoyed watching it this morning. They actually rival the Beatles in amount of "coverage" they get.

I knew Ruby Tuesday was the RS, but was in auto-pilot mode and typed it out and copy & pasted the video link. I'm slipping, it's a good thing I retired 2 months ago. 33 1/2 years at my last job, I'm ready (maybe not?) for the next stage of my life. I'll edit it out. Thanx

Never officially released, but there were some nice tributes to George after his passing.

I'm really not much of a Bon Jovi fan at all, but JBJ and Sambora did a tasteful
Here Comes the Sun - https://youtu.be/oImzWVGHtUc

And of course, the Prince, Petty, Jeff Lynne, Winwood, et. al. version of
While My Guitar Gently Weeps https://youtu.be/6SFNW5F8K9Y
