    Ah thanks FS, apparently my source was off a bit, but you can see what an
    influence he had, he's the man in my book!
    I've always liked 'The Walrus', although George was my favorite Beatle.

    He didn't play a single Beatles song or Wings song either.
    You meant first to release an 'Unplugged' album?
    From Wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mtv_unplugged
    "When the series first aired on November 26 1989[1], it featured Squeeze, Syd Straw and Elliot Easton. The first 13 episodes were hosted by American singer and songwriter Jules Shear.

    On December 13, 1990 at the MTV Studios New York Poison recorded some of their top ten singles of which four of them appear on the Crack A Smile...And More! album.

    When Paul McCartney himself appeared on the show in January 25 1991, he chose to release the set as Unplugged (The Official Bootleg). Show producer Alex Coletti has gone on record in an interview stating his view that had McCartney not released the album and its subsequent popularity, the concept would have never gained the cult status that it went on to enjoy."

    He came back 2 weeks later ready, and they redid his preformance.
    Because of this he won't be #1 in my book.

    So anyone yet know who was the very first? and the best IMO.
    You're gonna make me look it up.....

    By unplugged you mean accoustic? Then it's Neil Young and there's no contest. Game, Set, and Match!
