|New tribute song celebrates Beatles U.S. 50th anniversary|
[Posted by Adam Forrest on Friday, 01/31/14 4:22 pm] [Full Blog] [Tweet] [Facebook]
In 1775, "The Shot Heard Round The World" was the signal that the British were coming. In 1964, The Beatles on The Ed Sullivan Show was "The Shot Heard Round The World" that the British Invasion was coming!
World-famous John Lennon tribute performer Tim Piper has just finished an original track called "The Shot Heard Round the World," a beautifully sentimental rocker which pays homage to the night the Beatles appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show.

Along with Tim's brother, Greg Piper, and keyboardist Morley Bartnoff, they also had the great honor of having Gregg Bissonette (Ringo Starr's drummer) play drums on the track. Also featured are Kat Raio (the singing voice for "Elmo"), and Clifford Carter (who plays with Letterman's Will Lee as well as other top-notchers) on strings and Hammond B3 organ.
95.5 FM KLOS's Chris Carter will close his next broadcast this weeekend of "Breakfast With The Beatles" as the first DJ to play the song. Then, on February 9, Rodney Bingenheimer will play the track on his 50th Beatles anniversary show on 106.7 KROQ FM.
A video of the song can be seen on TimPiperMusic.com and will be available on iTunes this Sunday.
