    So - somebody doesn’t like the Beatles .

    Who cares ?

    I get bugged by the carved in stone Beatles fan beliefs that no one questions :


    - Yoko is/was evil and Broke them up

    - Paul is only valued when tied with St John

    - the whole St John thing

    - people not realizing that what broke them up was in large part their ages : even normal guys in their late 20’s tend to be drama queens. Take things waaaay too seriously/be overly-sensitive . Combine that with the microscope they were under and - yikes.


    Whatever - I’ll still watch it. I like watching good bands make music.

    Naive question, but what’s with all the Beatles gear laying around Jackson’s studio? Is it repro or the real thing? I’d assume the former but with Jackson who knows?

    I am curious about that as well. I doubt it is original, but the real question is WHY is it even there in the editing room?

    Before I watched the trailer, I thought this was just another doc that I'd seen a million times already. After seeing the trailer, I cannot wait to see it!

    Definitely put a smile to my face this morning. I love that slightly rawer take of Get Back.

    They really did look like they were having a great time in the studio then, which the original Let It Be film (at least, what I remember of it) didn't capture.

    My favourite Beatles era will always be '65-'66 (Help-Rubber Soul-Revolver) but any chance to see these guys playing is worth it to me.

    Just saw this trailer tonight - looking forward to this, actually. With 56 hours of never-seen footage, it'll be interesting to see what Jackson puts together to portray these sessions. Hope it's not too shlocky, lol, as we know it wasn't all sweetness and light during that recording. ;-) But it is cool watching them record, as love them or (BT) hate them, they clearly were great musicians.

    Paul: Stops perfect "Get Back," wanting it faster
    George: Plays it same exact speed
    Paul: Okay with it

    :lol:
