Cheap Trick's Rick Neilsen's 10 Favorite Beatles' Songs
Like so many fellow musicians of a certain vintage, Rick Nielsen of Cheap Trick first saw The Beatles on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1964.
“They completely changed music, especially in America,” says the guitarist. “They changed me, too. Until that point I was a drummer. But I became a massive fan; I had the single of Please Please Me a year before anyone else in the States had even heard of the Beatles.”
And as for picking his Top Ten by the band?
“Holy cow! That’s next to impossible; they have close to four hundred songs!”
So Rick stretched the rules a little, and we indulged him.
