This Earth Day skit from Jimmy Kimmel was on my mind so I had to look it up:

I went to the Cavern club today! It was brilliant. Front-row seats for live music, the intoxicating smell of booze, a thousand names written on the old brick walls... absolutely amazing. I'd go again. I'd do anything to perform there.

I also bought Live At The BBC Volume 2, which I'm looking forward to listening to.

I wasn't sure whether to put this in the "good covers" thread or the "odd covers" thread, so I decided to go with neither.

 

This is Metallica's James Hetfield playing a solo acoustic version of "In My Life" at a recent cancer benefit concert.  I can't honestly claim that I'm the world's biggest Metallica fan (I like Metallica, but I'm not a hardcore fan), but this cover isn't bad.

That must've been a really cool experience! I hope to go there sometime in my life, but I'm a bit farther from it than you... Like an ocean...

I'd say L.B.J. (as President Johnson was known) is a most appropriate American President to mention on a Beatles Bible forum, since his term -- 1963-1969 -- coincides with the career of the Beatles.

@Funny Paper, you're mentioning LBJ made remember that the little one-horse town from which I just moved had at least one claim to fame. Notice the little sign on the side of the building.

The first time I went to that little Dairy Queen, I told the 16 year old on the other side of the window, "I'll have what LBJ had". Her response was a blank stare. a-hard-days-night-ringo-7

While LBJ was enjoying his ice cream, the Beatles were having a crappy day

Thanks for that. I've got mixed feelings about Metallica (love their '80s stuff, hate everything from the black album on) and mixed feelings about that performance. Hetfield's obviously got great taste (as do some of the screaming yahoos in the crowd) and he plays the song well...but singing was never his strong suit, even if he could duplicate the all-but-necessary harmonies himself. Wonder what percentage of Metallica fanatics who didn't already know the song would be won over by that rendition?

I remember George saying 'Blimey, he's always talking about “Yesterday”, you'd think he was Beethoven or somebody' - Paul McCartney

Seems like In My Life is one of James' songs at the moment, as here he is performing it with Metallica on the 12th at an acoustic performance for MusiCares.

@vonbontee Not even if they'd waited until 1969 to record it, but if it had been one of the oldies they dug up during the Get Back sessions. Can you imagine a January 1969 revisit with Billy Preston on keyboards!

I agree about the harmonies though, they could have worked some out!

After the US courts gave last minute permission for the "performance" to go ahead, "Michael Jackson" appearing at last night's Billboard Awards:

How long before the same is done to The Beatles?
