A bit of both, I haven't checked this week, but last week I put $50 in, at 165.9.....Its probably around 159.9 or something as we speak.

(I have a half-written U2gigs article analysing snippet choices ... I think he's snippeted something like 50-60 Beatles songs, more than twice that of any other artist.)
Seems a safe conclusion, all right!

Actually, on another forum, this guy once posted a GREAT Michael Bolton concert story.

After suffering through about half the show and wanting to die, he couldn't take any more. Michael Bolton introduced one song with "this is a song about ... love", and so the guy just yelled out "THEY ALL ARE!"

Safe to say he didn't get any that night. Every woman in earshot gave him the worst death glares, but all the other boyfriends and husbands who'd been dragged along shot him looks of admiration.

OK, my memory had exaggerated things a bit. 31 Beatles covers/snippets (including 4 Lennon solo songs and 1 Harrison song). Still well ahead of any other artist.
