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 These Animal Men 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.

2. Guns And Roses – Live And Let Die

Written by Paul McCartney with Wings, this Guns And Roses cover version hit a peak of number 5 in December 1991. In their later years Guns And Roses became something of a glorified cover band. In 1992 they had a number 2 hit with Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door, originally by Bob Dylan.

3. Bob Dylan – Mr Tambourine Man

This Bob Dylan song was first released on his 1965 album Bringing It All Back Home. Since then it has been covered by many different bands and artists, including the following.

4. Glen Campbell – Mr Tambourine Man

This cover version of the Bob Dylan penned song Mr Tambourine Man from Glen Campbell can be found on his album 20 Greatest Hits. Anyroads, there are plenty of songs that Glen Campbell has covered, and plenty of his songs that others have covered – like the following song.

5. These Animal Men – Wichita Lineman
