Former Beatles drummer Ringo Starr is the musical equivalent of meatloaf with gravy, mashed potatoes and a cold glass of milk to wash it down with. Not too exciting, very predictable, but also very comforting and in the right mood, exactly what you’re looking for.

Cover Wars March Madness: Sweet 16

Cover Wars March Madness rolls on. We’ve had our play-in round and our first full round of 32 covers and we’re left with our Sweet 16. We are in our third year of this tournament and we have just now done the obvious, we have generated an actual bracket so you can visualize how this is all going to go down. Have a look and be sure to vote in all eight matchups.

Matchup #1

Ramble On (Led Zeppelin)

Phish debuted this cover at Alpine Valley in the Summer of 1998. As most Phish fans know, there has been one other performance ever and it was the following week at Vernon Downs where the band paired Ramble On with their own Slave To The Traffic Light to close the first set. There are some killer Ramble On Teases in the Slave jam. Source: 8-1-1998

UPDATE: The text in all the descriptions for Cover Wars March Madness are taken from the original editions which at times – are out of date. As one of our readers pointed out in the previous round – Phish has since performed one more partial performance of Ramble On, and yes – it was pretty terrible.

VS.

Wilco – Thirteen (Big Star)

Wilco recorded this cover for the 2006 Big Star covers record Big Star Small World. Though never played live by Wilco, the song has made at least 11 appearances at Jeff Tweedy solo shows.

John Lennon Remasters

Despite the erratic nature of his solo output, John Lennon garnered almost as much respect and reverence on his own as he did as a Beatle. It’s arguable that his extra-musical activities, such as the peace advocacy that raised the ire of the establishment, had as much or more to do with the admiration accorded Lennon, but that doesn’t deny the force of the best work he did once the iconic band dissolved in 1970
