The Smithereens cover the Beatles
How great is this?
This is the Smithereens' best Beatles impression - with Pat Dinizio sounding virtually identical to his hero, Paul McCartney.
At his show in Winnipeg last weekend, Dinizio told a story about how he postponed his honeymoon, because there was a rumor that Paul McCartney would be at a party for which he had an invitation.
McCartney indeed showed up at the party, and Dinizio was in complete awe of him.
As Dinizio tells it, he leans over to Maria Elena, Buddy Holly's ex-wife, and says, "Can you believe it?! It's Paul McCartney right there."
And she replies, "Yeah, he's a fucking asshole."
And you thought the video was great.
