Fake Beatles

Swedish Last weekend, we saw a performance of “Classical Mystery Tour”, a Beatles tribute band at a Newport Beach show. This was the first time I ever attended a Beatles-like performance, and as suspect & artificial as this concept is, I actually liked it a lot. The band tried to look & sound as closely to what The Beatles must have been in ‘64 & ’67, and they did a pretty good job at it. However, it must be strange to live a live of a performer, pretending to be somebody else like that.

There are many other Beatles tribute bands; Yahoo lists 31 of them. I imagine that there’s an Artistic Management Conglomerate that runs all of them, and when a Ringo or John is sick or indisposed at one band, they replace him with another…
