The Beatles influenced pretty much everyone in the world of rock and roll, or so it seems. Paul McCartney was the most pop focused of The Beatles and he has continued to churn out top notch pop records since the The Beatles broke up.
The Grateful Dead were not exempt from the influence of The Beatles. Nevertheless, it’s pretty safe to say that many heads were caught off guard when Jerry busted out McCartney’s That Would Be Something at the Garden. The band played theis Macca song a total of 16 times, but this was the first one.
I’m still on a Beatles kick at the moment, as I recently finished reading Here, There, & Everywhere, a book written by one of the engineers on The Beatles’ records with some interesting insights and stories about the band.
