Introducing: The Meetles

The other day on my way home I had the pleasure of watching a cover band called "The Meetles" perform.

The Meetles are a Beatles and 60's cover band. They were very entertaining and managed to attract a big crowd down at Herald Square.

The performance I recorded was a cover of "Roll Over Beethoven". This song is a cover of a cover. It was a hit song back in the 50's and recorded by Chuck Berry, then in 1963 the Beatles covered and recorded this song being that it was one of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, and George Harrion's favorite songs.

Check out The Meetles live, The Beatles Cover of Roll Over Beethoven, and then the original by Chuck Berry.
