Musical perfection happens on stage when voices ideally complement each other. And, that’s what exactly happened when Chris Stapleton and Sheryl Crow joined forces to pay tribute to John Lennon. Back in 2015, Stapleton and Crow performed “Don’t Let Me Down” during an all-star concert organized to celebrate Lennon’s 75th birthday. To bring the music experience into a higher level, the two were joined by Brandon Flowers, the lead singer of the rock band The Killers.

“Don’t Let Me Down” is one of the Beatles’ most popular songs that have been covered by numerous artists from different genres including the ones from Dillard and Clark, The Black Crowes, and Keith Urban. However, many would agree that the trio’s rendition is one of the best. Throughout the performance, everyone had their own time to shine but Stapleton’s voice undeniably stood out. His voice soared over Flowers’ and Crow’s, but not in an overpowering way. Their rough, soulful sound blended well together, fitting for the bluesy vibe of the song.

Remembering John Lennon

John Lennon had the most interesting career among the members of the most commercially successful band in popular music history, the Beatles. Lennon had a vast collection of brutally honest songwriting and melodic songcraft. Also, he was a political and peace activist. He particularly involved on the issue of the Vietnam war. Some of his songs were adopted as anthems by the anti-war movement and went further to the larger counterculture. His music evidenced his undying love for rock & roll yet he also released mellow tracks (“Imagine”) that melted the heart of the listeners.

Lennon was assassinated outside his New York apartment building, in December 1980. And though he left this world during an unexpected time, he left behind an enormous legacy, not just as a singer, but also as a writer, actor, and activist – a multitalented artist indeed.

And while we drench with the memory of John Lennon and the Beatles, let’s watch this one of a kind tribute from Stapleton Crow and Flowers.

To complete the nostalgia moment package, here’s the original cover. Enjoy watching!
