Westone Artists Featured on Tribute to Beatles: A Grammy Salute 50 Years Later

Westone Artist Peter Frampton - Beatles Tribute with Katy Perry, Don Was - Picture

It was 50 years ago “Yesterday” (February 9, 1964) that The Beatles made their debut on The Ed Sullivan Show, to the delight of millions of American teenagers. CBS-TV had an anniversary gift for these music-loving baby boomers last night who saw the original Beatles’ broadcast: A Grammy Salute 50 Years Later, featuring Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, Adam Levine, John Legend, Annie Lennox (for a reunion with Eurythmics bandmate Dave Stewart!,) Keith Urban, Pharrell Williams, Stevie Wonder, and Brad Paisley and Peter Frampton, who were spotted wearing Westone in-ear monitors.

Peter Frampton has been connected with The Beatles since 1978, when he played Billy Shears in the movie musical Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. Peter, along with The Bee Gees, Earth Wind and Fire, Aerosmith, and other music and acting legends, performed new versions of songs originally written and sung by The Beatles. Suffice it to say the movie didn’t live up to producers’ expectations, but the poor reviews didn’t hurt the careers of anyone, and if anything it exposed the Beatles to an entirely new generation of fans.

If you missed the Beatles tribute on CBS last night and can’t yet find the video clips on YouTube yet, check out this incredible cover of The Beatles “Get Back” featuring Keith Urban and Peter Frampton earlier this month in Nashville:
