PAUL MCCARTNEY AT DODGER STADIUM LOS ANGELES – PAUL REUNITES WITH RINGO!

By Posted on 0 , 3

Paul McCartney at Dodge Stadium Los Angeles July 13 2019.

Beatles fans got something Saturday night they hadn’t in 53 years: the sight of Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr playing together on stage at Dodger Stadium. Although McCartney himself is not a stranger to the venue, having last played there just five years ago, two Beatles taking to the outfield together was something that hadn’t happened since August 28, 1966, which turned out to be the Fab Four’s penultimate tour gig ever.

The former bandmates weren’t revisiting material quite that old. The two songs Starr joined McCartney for Saturday both post-dated the Beatles’ time as a touring unit: “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band (Reprise)” and  “Helter Skelter.”



SIR PETER JACKSON’s BEATLES DOCUMENTARY TO BE ‘MORE EXPRESSIVE’,SAYS RINGO STARR

By Posted on 0 , 0

Ringo Starr says an upcoming documentary on the band from Kiwi filmmaker Sir Peter Jackson will be “more expressive and more like we were”.

Speaking to SiriusXM about the upcoming documentary, Starr says the original 1970 documentary Let It Be, which ends with the Beatles’ famous rooftop concert in London, misrepresented the band.

“I’m looking with Peter Jackson at all the footage that was never used,” he says. “Prior to us doing that, we’re all hanging out, and it’s a lot of fun, lot of humour, and not like the one that came out.”

Starr says director Michael Lindsay-Hogg used one moment of brief disagreement over who wanted to play live to construct his documentary, when in reality, the band got along much more in real life.

“When Michael Lindsay-Hogg put his film together, which he’s in quite a lot, too, they just stuck to those seconds of an argument,” he says. “But there was a lot of joy, and I think Peter will show that … this one, I think, will be more expressive and more like we were.”

Jackson’s film will be based on around 55 hours of footage of the band working on songs that eventually became the Let It Be album.

Jackson said he was “relieved” to discover the tension displayed in Lindsay-Hogg’s documentary was a “myth”.

“After reviewing all the footage and audio that Michael Lindsay-Hogg shot 18 months before they broke up, it’s simply an amazing historical treasure-trove. Sure, there’s moments of drama – but none of the discord this project has long been associated with.

“Watching John, Paul, George and Ringo work together, creating now-classic songs from scratch, is not only fascinating – it’s funny, uplifting and surprisingly intimate.”
