Aerosmith Micheal Jackson John Lennon Elton John Tom Jones Joe Cocker Tina Turner Diana Ross The Supremes The definitive cover of "Come Together" is probably Delbert McClinton's version. It is fitting that McClinton recorded it because his harmonica playing on Bruce Chanell's "Hey! Baby" in the early 60's inspired Lennon to play harmonica on "Love Me Do." If you watch McClinton's video for "Come Together," look for a picture of Delbert with the Beatles when they toured together in England.

John Lennon was given a harmonica by his uncle George when he was a child, and after his uncle's death began to teach himself. Having played harmonica through early Beatles gigs, John developed his technique in 1962 when the Beatles were on tour with Bruce Channel, and Bruce's harmonica player Delbert McClinton's gave John some tips which influenced John's playing on the Beatles' debut single 'Love Me Do'.
