Howard Stern’s Tribute to The Beatles’ Revolver

Revolver by The Beatles is considered by many to be one of the greatest rock albums ever made. Radio & television icon Howard Stern thinks so, too. And because it’s his favorite Beatles album, he created a very special celebration for its 50th anniversary.

On October 7th, the Howard Stern Show celebrated Revolver with an all-star musical tribute featuring some of music’s best acts. The lineup included James Taylor performing “Here, There and Everywhere”, Cheap Trick playing “She Said She Said”, Gov’t Mule rockin’ “And Your Bird Can Sing”, and Joe Bonamassa with his rousing rendition of “Taxman”, the album’s lead track.

Rolling Stone magazine calls Joe Bonamassa’s decision to record “Taxman” at Liverpool’s Cavern Club – the birthplace of The Beatles – “creative”, and Billboard magazine refers to the Stern’s lineup of artists paying tribute as “unique”.

"The music of the Beatles has withstood over a half of a century and still surpasses any followers' attempts of recreating those sounds, and especially those songs," Joe said. "'Taxman' was a blast to play live at the Cavern Club in Liverpool U.K. – the place where it all started."
