Restless Records to Release "Butchering The Beatles"
Tuesday August 22, 12:27 pm ET
Features Over 50 of Rock's Most Notorious Stars

NEW YORK, NY--(MARKET WIRE)--Aug 22, 2006 -- On October 24, 2006
Restless Records will release "Butchering The Beatles" -- featuring
the BIGGEST, the BADDEST, the HEAVIEST all-star line-up ever
assembled to honor what is arguably the greatest band ever -- THE
BEATLES. All-in-all, over 50 internationally known recording artists
bring their unique bone-crushing slant to these remarkable songs.
Produced by Grammy award-winning producer/guitarist Bob Kulick and
ace engineer Brett Chassen, "Butchering The Beatles" features 12 new,
ass-kicking versions of The Beatles' chart-topping hits
including "Hey Jude," "I Feel Fine," and "Day Tripper," plus
the more
esoteric "Hey Bulldog," barked out by the legendary Alice Cooper
and "Tomorrow Never Knows," uniquely interpreted by the iconic Billy
Idol, alongside classic concept songs like "Lucy In The Sky With
Diamonds" and "Magical Mystery Tour."

When asked by Guitar Player magazine what possessed him to go all
metal on The Beatles, Bob Kulick stated that, "Beatles songs are the
Holy Grail. They're the best rock songs ever written. These new
recordings are totally faithful, yet completely different. Billy
Gibbons singing 'Revolution' or (Motorhead bassist) Lemmy
singing 'Back In The USSR' are not exactly Paul McCartney or John
Lennon. And of course, the guitar solo sections were lengthened to
accommodate all the artists' solo styles."

Who cares about one or two degrees of Kevin Bacon. All I care about is Brian's curse.
