The connection between Kevin Ayers and The Beatles

Today, 18 February 2013, is the day that Kevin Ayers died. Kevin was an English singer-songwriter who was a major influence on the psychedelic rockscene. He used to be in the prolific band Soft Machine but was also succesful as a solo artist.

There is actually one point of common interest between The Beatles and Kevin Ayers: they both had one common song on their repertoire: Falling in Love (Can't Help It).

The Beatles played this German song at the Starclub in Hamburg, and Kevin Ayers played it on an album in 1975
