The Smithereens did a CD of Beatles covers called "Meet The Smithereens" and it's great!

Great album, the Smithereens are a top notch rock band,they did a sequel to Meet the Smithereens too, it's called b-side the Beatles, their cover versions of the Beatle's b-sides.

The worst two I've ever heard was Randy Travis singing NOWHERE MAN and William Shatner trying to do LUCY IN THE SKY WITH DIAMONDS.Those two guys murdered those songs.Big time.

I'm glad Slim Whitman never covered any Beatle songs he would of yodeled them to death. Lol I am also glad Louie Armstrong didn't sing any either.

Just been listening to the Smithereens and they do Beatle songs great the b-side album sounded good on you-tube.I had sort of forgot about that band. They were good but only had one or two hits in the 80's.

They were a good band I wonder what ever happened to them after the 80's.
