This is pretty focking cool. No prog, but very close coverage of the Beatles. Amazing stuff, and it gives me chills to hear some of my favorite Beatles tunes done well live.

Yellow Matter Custard is a Beatles tribute supergroup consisting of Mike Portnoy (Dream Theater, Transatlantic, OSI, Liquid Tension Experiment, Liquid Trio Experiment, Avenged Sevenfold), Neal Morse (Transatlantic, Spock's Beard), Paul Gilbert (Racer X, Mr. Big) and Matt Bissonette (Mustard Seeds, Jughead, The Squirts, Joe Satriani, ELO). They take their name from a lyric in "I Am the Walrus", by The Beatles: "Yellow matter custard, dripping from a dead dog's eye".

Ty Tabor (King's X) was originally approached to play guitar for the group, but was unable to due to the King's X touring schedule.[1]

Conceived as more of a project than a band, they have only performed a total of five times: twice in 2003 (May 17 at Upper Montclair, New Jersey and May 18 at B.B. King's Blues Club, New York), and three times in 2011. Due to scheduling conflicts, Matt Bissonette was unable to play with the band in 2011, and thus was replaced by Kasim Sulton.[2]

I happen to have a copy of a show they did. PM me for details. :cornut:

All the ones I've seen sound pretty bad, but... here's a YouTube vid of Day Tripper:

The roster looks pretty solid.
