SOMEHOW I FORGOT to actually go find and listen to Cheap Trick’s version of The Beatles’ “She Said She Said.” This was recorded for Howard Stern’s tribute to The Beatles’ album Revolver, originally broadcast six months ago(!). I even posted about it here. How did I forget?
One word: INCREDIBLE (check it out HERE)! Robin sounds amazing, Rick’s guitar is a loud and fun blast and the entire production (by Jack Douglas, I believe) just rocks with a great energy.
There’s probably not a better band to cover The Beatles than Cheap Trick. After all, they’re fans of, and have been influenced by, The Beatles; they’ve performed Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band live (and released a DVD and album of that), have covered “Day Tripper” and “Magical Mystery Tour” and have always done the Fab Four songs justice. While adding a little bit of their own flavor, too.
