    Jeff and Johnny tackle a Lennon tune from the first solo album.




    Beck sounds great as per usual, Depp is a pleasant surprise.

    Good cover. I prefer Lennon's version - simpler and more personal.

    Yeah, that whole Lennon record was personal, nearly to the point of discomfort.

    But they do a nice job of it. Kind of a different meaning nowadays, which I guess was the point.

    This is pretty good!

    Its maybe lacking a bit of that double-tracked vocal sound Lennon always had, but I would like more Reverb/echo effect on Johnny Depp's vocal. ( I know there's some on there, just want more)

    But I like it. Good enough to make me miss John, again...

    Jeff Beck slumming it. The pandemic makes us all lonely I guess.

    Actually, it seems so appropriate for today as it did when Lennon released it. I like this version better for some reason ... maybe Beck's playing has something to do with it. I can't believe how well Depp captures Lennon's style.

    Very moving for me. Thanks for posting.

    BTW, I cannot believe I missed this for sooo long.:oops:

    Depp actually has chops. He was a serious musician, before he started acting. Let’s be honest it takes a lot to hang with the likes of Perry & Beck

    Sean Lennon, John's second son, has done a version of it also.
