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 Vivian Campbell 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 – Let’s Spend The Night Together
This song was the 12th chart hit in the UK for the Rolling Stones, reaching a peak of number 3 in January 1967. Since then it has been covered by many different bands and artists, including the following.
4. Muddy Waters – Let’s Spend The Night Together
This Muddy Waters cover version of the Rolling Stones song Let’s Spend The Night Together can be found on his 1968 album Electric Mud. Anyroads, there are plenty of songs that Muddy Waters has covered, and plenty of his songs that others have covered – like the following song.
5. Vivian Campbell – I’m Ready
The Vivian Campbell cover version of the Muddy Waters song I’m Ready can be found on the 2005 album Two Sides Of It.
