featured a couple of times in the August 2016 issue of German
magazine Good Times . Celebrating the 50th anniversary of
the Beatles' Revolver album, musicians were asked on their
opinions of the masterpiece. See below what Jeff said (loosely
translated from the German text by Rainer Frank). Jeff and
other stars were also asked to list their five top album
COVERs of all time.
Like all Beatles albums, Revolver
was an epiphany. It was welcomed with much anticipation.
The Fabs were always fantastic, always shifting musical
boundaries.The Beatles had high goals, and offered light
and shadow which other musicians emulated.
They were guided by the
genius who was George Martin. They experimented with sitars
and they showed technical wizardry in their music, particularly
George Harrison. Other musicians looked on with astonishment
on how they changed their musical directions.
And of course
there was astounding songwriting. The cover was cool, too.
With pride I watched their progress and development.
Revolver played often on my Dansette record player
until the next album came. I learned a lot from the
Beatles. The Beatles were the Beatles and there will never
be some one like them.
