If I Needed Someone – The Beatles
“If I Needed Someone” by the Beatles, a cover by Mike Massé featuring the MonaLisa Twins.
It was so great meeting and working with Mona and Lisa, the MonaLisa Twins. They are every bit as pleasant and talented as you would imagine. They and their kind parents welcomed me into their home for some rehearsal and a video shoot. I was so pleased when they accepted my invitation to sit in at my gig at the Epstein Theatre in Liverpool. They are locals and are veterans of the Liverpool music scene, having played the theatre before, as well as 100 gigs at the famous Cavern Club.
We thought it would be fun to record something together, so it had to be some Beatles. This song has always been a favorite of mine. I love what they did with it, and I did my best to keep up. They walked me around to some Beatles sites in Liverpool in the afternoon before the gig, as you see in the video. And they did a great job sitting in with me for some Beatles and more during my Liverpool gig.
My guitar is an Ovation Custom Legend shallow bowl.
