****Not exactly new to these boards, but I kind of disappeared for a while. Anywho, I saw the special "The Night That Changed America", because I happen to be a Beatles fan, and I was just curious. Not bad, I have to say, with the exception of Katy Perry. I had to mute the sound when she came on. I was actually surprised that Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr agreed to not only attend the show, but to perform as well. Their interview with David Letterman was good, too. It was interesting to hear their recollections. I have to wonder, though, since I read that they to be convinced by the producers of the show to appear, would the same have been said of John Lennon and George Harrison, if they had lived and were approached? I personally doubt they would have shown up, since John had put the past behind him, and George would have been busy overseeing the remastering of his solo catalogue, which is what he was doing before he died. He wasn't that much into public appearances, anyway, in his later days.
**Well Yoko and Olivia were there, so I don't know why John and George wouldn't have attended. That doesn't mean they would have liked it, though- it was all pretty lame
* Towards the end of his life John seemed to be at peace with the whole being a Beatle thing so I think had his attitude stayed the same he would've been ok with the show. Same with George.
I think all four realized that "being a Beatle" gave them the lives they had. Their lives would've been drastically different had they NOT been Beatles. But, it took until their older ages to finally gain some perspective in regards to what they perceived as the "dark side" of being Beatles.
