Paul McCartney’s Contribution to Rave On Buddy Holly ReleasedPosted: May 25, 2011
I’m so excited for the Buddy Holly tribute album, ‘Rave On Buddy Holly’. The tracklist and the artists involved are just awesome, and from the tracks released so far it seems like an rough, old school retread of the young, iconic rock stars greatest songs.
First was the Black Keys’ soul tinged, slow cover of ‘Dearest’, and now I just checked out Paul McCartney’s gritty, pub rock, cover of ‘It’s So Easy’. Both are amazing and I’m counting down the days until the June, 28, release date of ‘Rave On Buddy Holly’.
Here’s a video of McCartney performing ‘It’s So Easy’ live, you can stream it through Rolling Stone here though:
