Butchering The Beatles

"A Headbashing Tribute"

The Story
Butchering The Beatles: "A Headbashing Tribute" features the heaviest all-star line-up ever assembled to honor what is arguably the greatest band ever - The Beatles. All-in-all, over 50 internationally known recording artists bring their unique bone-crushing slant to these remarkable songs. Produced by Grammy award-winning producer/guitarist Bob Kulick and ace engineer Brett Chassen, Butchering The Beatles features 12 new, ass-kicking versions of The Beatles' chart-topping hits, including "Hey Bulldog," barked out by the legendary Alice Cooper, and "Tomorrow Never Knows," uniquely interpreted by the iconic Billy Idol. When asked by Guitar Player magazine what possessed him to go all metal on The Beatles, Bob Kulick stated, "Beatles songs are the Holy Grail. They're the best rock songs ever written. These new recordings are totally faithful, yet completely different. Billy Gibbons singing 'Revolution' or (Motorhead bassist) Lemmy singing 'Back In The USSR' are not exactly Paul McCartney or John Lennon. And of course, the guitar solo sections were lengthened to accommodate all the artists' solo styles."
