Under The Covers: Other Artists Covering Beatles Songs: ‘Come Together’- Aerosmith. Up now to the final two albums- ‘Come Together’ a John Lennon song opens Abbey Road and one of the few highlights on the ill fated Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Heart Club Band movie/ album starring The Bee Gees and Peter Frampton in the late 1970’s was Aerosmith’s version of ‘Come Together.’ I am not a big Aerosmith fan at all- I have never owned one of their albums- but I do like this cover.
I’m a big Aerosmith fan and the scene in the movie (which I just re-watched recently!) where they are singing this is pretty amazing. I wish the stage they were on was bigger. It felt like someone could have easily fallen off and gotten hurt. I love their cover of this song.
I have no idea how I’d “grade” this one because , well , to be honest, not a big favorite Beatles song of mine. I know a LOT of people who love it but to me it’s among their lesser hits. That said, Aerosmith do a very good cover. Not better than the original but very close.
