As promised to Shelagh on the pop quiz thread - a cover of Paperback Writer.

Been enjoying 10CC greatest hits album recently so here's their version - not too sure about Eric Stewart's vocals but see what you think.

10cc great band, but horses for courses, Bernie...
Couldn’t imagine the Beatles performing Rubber Bullet, either :D

Off to see 'A Foreigner's Journey' at the Epstein tonight. Superb tribute act to, would you believe, Foreigner and Journey.

Honestly didn't expect to be able to find a Journey cover of a Beatles tune but here we have it - a rockin' little ditty from the Yellow Submarine album.

That said, I'll be gobsmacked if it's played at the gig tonight :wink: :lol:

Enjoy your night at the Epstein, Bernie, hope you get to hear the song you like :wink:

Haven’t been in that theatre for years, last show I saw ‘The life Of Billy Fury’ fantastic :)
Theatre was then the Neptune, people still knew it as Cranes..lovely old building!!

As it would have been George's 77th birthday next Tuesday, here's his classic that was number one on this date in 1971
