I bet they would have done if they were all still alive though, but they fact that never happened is to their advantage. I mean John  had already done some real awful stuff in the 70s, but the opportunity to really embarrass himself in the 80s and 90s is obvious, so he avoided Paul's curse in that respect, as did the Beatles as a whole.

The Beatles reformed in 1995 and released a new single.

just read PT's book, closely followed by daltrey's. the latter was much more fun, inevitably.

Another entry in that youtube documentary series about John and Paul - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4b-S3XahUAE&t=3329s


It's very good indeed.

These are absolutely cracking, Biggy! Thanks for highlighting them. The access they have to so much footage I've never seen - does that suggest an insider of sorts? Although the subtext that John was a bit gay for Paul is a weird narrative for someone at Apple to be pushing. Amazing historical record though. Cheers!

There's a good Dutch Beatles podcast called Fab4Cast that has a 2 parter with Mark Lewisohn out now.

Mark says that he's listened to all the A & B rolls from the Twickenham and Savile Row sessions and when the roof was suggested as a place to do the show, John and Ringo were all for it, George said he didn't want to but wanted to get it finished and Paul was dead against it. Which was interesting...

I wonder why...

because he wanted to bow out with a bigger concert, maybe?

God that's good.

Here's a hypothetical...if Paul married Jane Asher instead of Linda Eastman, what would Wings have been like? Would they exist or would he have gone solo and stayed solo?

...there'd have been no split because Jane would have popped into the studio with some nice cakes to keep their sugar levels up on those long sessions.
John wouldn't have descended into heroin use, and Macca would have continued writing beautiful love songs that wouldn't get too schmaltzy because the others would rein him in.
John would have seen what living with a mumsy yet independent partner could be like, and go off and marry Delia Smith so their wives' careers could mirror the healthy competition of their own, culminating in Delia leaving the Rolling Stones in the lurch and designing the album sleeve for their 1969 album 'Get Bake'.

Lennon dead in 1980 due to diabetes.

Delia finally ends her period of mourning with 1986's 'One Is Fun' and then creates her signature 'Lennon Drizzle' cake in his memory, outselling Jane's 'Macca-roons' by ten to one. Meanwhile Barbara Bach carves out a market share in the reconstituted potato snack market, and Olivia's Hariss-on paste revolutionises Moroccan recipes.
