To pass the guilt onto others:

I posted this video on the "Impossible to Derail Thread":

 

Very wholesome footage on John playing Rock Island Line followed by Buddy Holly's Maybe Baby and Peggy Sue. So it might be interesting to do a thread on early Beatle covers of other songs and rock and roll from the 50s and even musicals, given how much Paul said he took inspiration from them (Till There Was You / Eleanor Rigby etc.). And predominantly one of the biggest Beatles influences, Buddy Holly and the Crickets.

Reposting my previous comment on the video:

Does anyone know if these footage is from any documentary, box set, etc.?

FANTASTIC reinterpretation of Holly's music by a melancholic Lennon from '72. This versions only shows a glance of the potential Holly's sound and song-writing had to transitioning during the 60s and 70s and it makes me really sad. But the respect Lennon shows for Holly on his playing and mannerisms warms my heart. One of the warmest Lennon videos in my opinion. You can even hear him at 3:44 saying "a place crash, yeah" answering to Yoko on Holly's death. Just heartbreaking.

I can't decide if I prefer Maybe Baby or Peggy Sue, Lennon's voice fit so good into those songsbeatlemaniacs_02_gif

And like usual, Yoko delivers some of her acclaimed and beloved backing vocalspaul-mccartney-facepalm_gif But still, very wholesome in general.
