Remember that crappy VH1 movie a few years back where Lennon didn’t get assassinated, thus allowing the Beatles to reform again in the early eighties just in time for the whole leg warmer craze? Well it would seem the idea wasn’t as preposterous as it sounded.
But just what the devil does this all mean? Read on gentle reader, read on…
seems Sir Paul McCartney made a record contract with CBS Records worth some $10.8
million, therein agreeing to once again make music with his three
former bandmates. The reunion would have been under the moniker of none other than The Beatles (CDs), and was supposed to reunite them in 1979. The release of this document coincides with the 25 year anniversary of John Lennon’s assassination.
Along similar lines, McCartney once said that while the three remaining members were recording Free As A Bird, Lennon’s spirit took on the form of a white peacock. The mysterious bird appeared during a photo shoot alongside the other three. Regarding the experience, Paul can be quoted as saying: “That’s John. Spooky, eh? It was like John was hanging around. We felt that all through the recording."
In facetious news, an insider tells us there is still hope for a Beatles reunion in the form of Rock Star: The Beatles. In the show, two guitarists/song writers would be sought. The programme reportedly worked so well for INXS that both Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr are eager to sign on. The same venal insider also reports that this is slated for a summer 2006 run.
Hang on, was that just 2,000,000 eggs hitting our office…?
