The Beatles: George-the quiet Beatle…I’ve heard George Martin, in an interview, apologize for underestimating him as a writer in the early years.
James Brown: A downer and dirtier “Something” with a touch of funk.
Paul Gilbert Band: Pretty raw footage and a guitar sound with some edge. Paul’s a pretty good crooner.
Helloween: Pretty straight cover-a little Bonzoish and shouty during the bridge but, it works.
Frank Sinatra: Sweet arrangement; put some swing to it. Stick around Jack.
…The Rolling Stones?
Now, before jumping to conclusions, let’s take a gander at an insightful quote from Lemmy…
The Beatles were from Liverpool. It’s a hard town. The Stones weren’t the hard men. They just dressed up. The Beatles were the hard men. Fucking Liverpool, man. The Stones are from the suburbs of London. Ringo was from the fucking Dingle, which is the worst area, next to Glasgow, that I’ve ever seen in my life. What they did in both those places—they couldn’t reform it, so they just knocked it down. They moved everybody out and razed it and built new housing projects. No way to make it civilized, you know what I mean? It was fucking lawless. The police wouldn’t go in there.
“From Me to You”, the Beatles tune covered here by Lonnie Mack.
