Well, after a fashion.
It’s been 50 years since the famous American debut of The Beatles on the Ed Sullivan Show. Now, it’s heavily rumored that, nearly half a century to the day, the two remaining Beatles, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, will reunite on the very same stage that helped catapult them into the hearts of America.
David Letterman, who records at Ed Sullivan studios, is planning a week long tribute to that influential performance, and his shows producers are feverishly trying to negotiate a deal with Paul and Ringo to perform a live set on the Friday, Feb. 7th show.
With a new Beatles compilation on the way, and the fact that there’s an almost guarantee that neither Paul nor Ringo plans to perform at the next 50 year anniversary, I think there are solid reasons for all parties to reach an agreement. And I hope they do.
