Even better than the real thing?

The Cavern Club is a rock and roll club at 10 ...

Liverpool's Cavern Club

It seems that tribute bands are all the rage at the moment, either because the real ones can’t play live (anymore)  or they won’t come to where you live. Add to this the nostalgia trip of seeing and hearing Sinatra, Elvis or Pink Floyd in 2010 and it’s a very attractive offer.

Here are three videos (of thousands, perhaps), of bands covering The Beatles:

1. from a Korean comedy show named ‘Infinity Challenge’ (무한도전 Mu-han-do-jun) – thanks to user beatlejo1 at YouTube for that information – an unnamed cover band having a bit of fun 😉

2. from Japan, the Beatrips – Look out for “George” who is the real star here on vocals and lead guitar and also notice how “Ringo” finally got a haircut and a shave. Live at the Cavern Club, Liverpool.

3. Last but not least, from Australia, the Beatnix, with a look at how Led Zeppelin’s Stairway to Heaven might have sounded if it had been written in 1963.

Strange Random Beatle Quote:

“Try to see it my way, only time will tell if I am right or I am wrong. While you see it your way, there’s a chance that we might fall apart before too long. We can work it out.”
