Nice list! The Grateful Dead have always done a fabulous job of covering the Beatles, so thanks for including Uncle Jerry' rendition of Dear Prudence. The last couple years, Bob Weir and Ratdog have been doing a dynamite version of Come Together in concert. He also often opens the second set acousically doing Blackbird.

An of course, the other master of re-interpretation is Joe Cocker, who generally begins his encores with She Came in Through the Bathroom Window.
