Bill Frisell covers Bob Dylan & John Lennon – Happy 70th Birthday Bill Frisell

I saw the Beatles on the Ed Sullivan Show just before my 13th birthday, right when I was getting into guitar.. It was massively huge in the effect it had on my whole life. … John Lennon’s music has been with me, the band, everybody, the world … it seems like forever. The songs are part of us. In our blood.
