Is it possible to link from the Beatles to any other band or artist in the world in only five steps? There is only one way to find out. This one links from the Beatles to Byron Stingily in five simple steps.

1. Beatles – Blackbird

Taken from the Beatles album The Beatles (also referred to as the White Album), Blackbird may well be credited as a Beatles song but every single part of the song was constructed and played by Paul McCartney, who in his Wings day wrote Live And Let Die.

2. Guns And Roses – Sympathy For The Devil

In their later years Guns And Roses became something of a glorified cover band. Not only did they cover the Paul McCartney written song Live And Let Die they also covered this one, which hit a peak of number 9 in the UK charts in early 1995 and was, of course, originally by the Rolling Stones.

3. Rolling Stones – Ruby Tuesday

This song was not originally released as a single in the UK, but a live version did chart in 1991, reaching a peak of number 59. It has been covered by many different bands and artists, including the following.

4. Minnie Riperton – Ruby Tuesday

Minnie Riperton was the guest vocalist on this version of the Rolling Stones song Ruby Tuesday which is available on the 1967 self-titled album by Rotary Connection. Anyroads, there are plenty of songs that Minnie Riperton has covered, and plenty of her songs that others have covered – like the following song.

5. Byron Stingily – Stick Together

This Byron Stingily cover version of the Minnie Riperton hit Stick Together can be found on his album Club Stories.
