If you've got good phones, just listen to what the bass's doing - yummy detuned goodness!
Agreed, awesome cover, one of my fav song on the live album :)

Agreed again, but the "original" is by an obscur bloke called Ringo Starr, which of course, I like the version, but it's easier to cover Ringo than Joe or Freddy :)

Of course, Lukather's just the right guy to have on your team for a number like this :) Again, the bass guitar work is inspirational IMO.
Equally good, hey, the Beatles influenced everybody, except DMC, of course :)

I like this one they did from good old Stevie, not better as such, but different, I like both versions http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NOFR9g_YHPg
