Butchering the Beatles (2006)

Various artists (Restless Records, R773801)

Butchering the Beatles (well, the title says it all) is produced by producer/guitarist Bob Kulick and engineer Brett Chassen. When asked by Guitar Player magazine what possessed him to go all metal on The Beatles, Bob Kulick stated that, "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."
