    So what kind of bass was the white hollow body played by the group that did Revolution? Anybody know? I want one.

    And BTW, revolution played in an upbeat style? Hilarious!

    Guild Starfire perhaps?
    I'm curious who the bass player is in the house band?
    I do see Peter Frampton on guitar and Kenny Aronoff on drums.

    It did sound good. I wouldn't want to hold my breath for a set of SGD pups though.

    The bass sounded good, but their version of Revolution... not so much.

    Don Was on bass - yes, the guy who wrote "walk the dinosaur".

    Was that the guy from Toto playing guitar next to Frampton?

    I think it was Steve Lukather with Peter Frampton

    Just saw Gary Clarke Jr and Joe Walsh play While My Guitar Gently Weeps.....very passionate playing. I thought they did a great job
    Steve Lukather from Toto also played with the house band which I believe is Ringo's touring band. I cannot sit thru Yellow Submarine though

    Saw Stevie Wonder eviscerate 'We Can Work It Out'. Such a great Beatles record, such a mediocre, phone-it-in interpretation offered here.

    Saw The Eurythmics do 'Fool on The Hill'. Unfortunately, there is no "unsee" option for this. Even 'unhear' would be a welcome choice.

    Yup. Lifelong Beatles' fan and I'm disappointed that this so sadly missed the mark.

    Paul and Ringo firing on all cylinders together, IMO.

    I've had a couple of people pop up on my Facebook feed saying they can't stand the Beatles, and the show is garbage. To those people I say: Just stop. You're embarrassing yourselves.

    Seriously, though - I get what people are saying about the renditions. Are they faithful to the originals. Mostly no, but what's interesting is that compositions are able to transcend genres and stand up when presented in different ways.

    I guess everyone's entitled to their opinions, and mine is that I thought it was a great show. The performers all looked like they were enjoying playing the Beatles' music. There were a couple of performances I really didn't care for, but that's just me. Paul and Ringo brought the house down, as I expected them to. I enjoyed it, and to me that's all that matters. Good to see Peter Frampton and Steve Lukather there, I wish they has gotten a bit more recognition. And there were some grade A looking ladies in the audience as well, as befitting a Hollywood show.

    Yeah I thought it was a good show overall! I disagree with the comments about some of the artists being bad. Just because someone puts their own style into a song doesn't mean it is bad. Some where better than others but I thought they all did a good job. I do wish Pharell would have taken that hat off though because now I'm hungry for Arby's! :D

    Also they should have had Prince play on "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" because IMO this is still the best cover of that song:

    I wonder if Ed took up the bass after this brief instructional by Paul...
