"The thing is, with the Beatles and us, it was a very friendly relationship. It was also very cannily worked out, because in those days singles were coming out every six, eight weeks. And we’d try and time it so that we didn’t clash. I remember John Lennon calling me up and saying, “Well, we’ve not finished mixing yet.” “We’ve got one ready to go.” “OK, you go first.”

They really should use the Mothers Of Invention album title regarding this: "We're Only In It For The Money".

Sounds like a really bizarre idea, though it might be interesting to hear their version of Revolution #9 w/Christopher Cross on vocals.winking smiley


Also, "...expect Christopher Cross to break out “Sailing,” Ride Like The Wind” and “Arthur’s Theme (Best You Can Do),”'


That seals the deal, I'm not going!

Thats insane, even by dinosaur oldies acts standards. Although the kicker is that Todd Rundgren is involved. Weird guy, but a genius and not desperate like the others or people you'd typically see doing this. His presence makes it baffling.

I think Todd will make the show interesting. Don’t think he would be involved
if this was not the case.

Todd has made some extremely odd career choices over the years, not the least of which was his decision to join The Cars and be their frontman.

Christopher Cross got his contract the old fasioned way: nepotism. His dad was some sort of big wig at Warner.

I'm not sure what's the weirdest aspect: the lineup of musicians, the fact that they're gonna perform the White Album in some frankenstein fashion, or the fact that they're then also gonna play THEIR songs alongside Beatles ones. I like the Monkees and Todd Rundgren a lot, but can't think of any time I'm looking to hear them on a mix with the White Album. Literally, the whole conception of this seems incredibly strange.

Sir Peter Jackson's Beatles doco to be 'more expressive', says Ringo Starr

"Sir Peter Jackson is creating his documentary from 55 hours of footage of the band working on Let It Be".

Beatles

Former Beatles member 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."

As long as they show the entire rooftop concert I'll be happy!

If band members walk out of a recording session, it's hard to deny there wasnt a considerable amount of discord and tension.
In fact only Paul seemed enthusiastic about keeping the band going in the 68/69 period.
I will of course be looking forward to the film, but hope it isn't an effort to rewrite history.
