Peter Frampton on Beatles Tribute: 'A Lot of Not-So-Dry Eyes' | Billboard

"'It doesn't get better than that,'" Frampton says. 'You think you know them because they're ingrained in your soul -- until you start to listen to them and work out the parts. They're very, very clever. It was eye-opening as we all went, 'Ah-ha!' Don found this place where you can download just about every Beatles number, the multi-tracks -- which shouldn't be out there, but they are -- and we were able to isolate our parts so we were able to come up with exactly the right parts for the songs. I think it was, like, 19 or 20 songs we learned for all the shows, total, so we had our work cut out for us.'"

In other words, "piracy" saved the day yet again?
