Boomer Music Talk with Richie Unterberger: The Beatles: The World’s Greatest Cover Band (Virtual)
Tue October 13, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Join rock music historian author Richie Unterberger a few days after what would have been John Lennon’s 80th birthday for a presentation on “The Beatles: The World’s Greatest Cover Band.”
Although most of the Beatles’ classic recordings were of songs they wrote, in their early years much of their repertoire was devoted to superb interpretations of songs by American rock, soul, and country stars. This program will spotlight their versions of songs by their greatest influences, from the Isley Brothers’ “Twist and Shout,” to Buck Owens’s “Act Naturally,” along with tunes that were originally hits for the likes of Chuck Berry, Carl Perkins, the Shirelles, and others.
Next Boomer Music Talk event: 10/27 at 6pm, Boomer Music Talk with Richie Unterberger: Joni Mitchell: The Early Years. Details here: https://sfcommunityliving.org/event/boomer-music-talk-joni-mitchell/
