By the way, the best cover band of all time? The Beatles. No, they never did an entire album because they had too much fabulous material of their own. But those early records had a lot of great covers. Covers that paid homage. Covers that revealed the band’s influences. Covers that were true to the original, but sounded brand new.
Message to Paul: do you know what would have been a better idea for Let It Be? Instead of a film showing The Beatles rehearsing a recording new material, you should have done a covers album.
Bet they would have had more fun.
