Geeze, I'd hate to how tired you were of the Beatles in the late 60's frimm.
I wasn't born until the late 60's. I'm just weary of The Beatles. I like music. I was an audio engineer in my misspent youth. I've heard a lot and there are a few things I'm just weary of. Surely I'm not alone in having things you wouldn't mind not hearing all the time.
Re:Hoffman and covers. I was at a jazz quartet show a few weeks ago and the guitarist did a Beatles cover. Because he is a stellar musician and the Beatles did a few good songs it wasn't horrible by any means, just sort of pedestrian. It was a crowd pleaser but I'd have rather he'd gotten a bit off the beaten path.
