A most interesting Beatles medley

Behold the magic hands and mystical axe of 17-string storyteller Phil deGruy. The late, great Danny Gatton said of deGruy: "I have never been more impressed with anybody's playing, ever!" Rock virtuoso Steve Vai said deGruy's style "sounds like John Coltrane meets Mel Brooks at a party for Salvador DalĂ­."

Here's a Harry Shearer interview with deGruy on the 7 November 2010 edition of Le Show: Part 1, Part 2 and the songlet "Time Flies and Has No Landing Gear."

Actually it starts with a crossby/stills/nash tune, and there's some Al di Meola in there too
