 at 1:18 SOMETHING HAPPENS!

Damn! it's totally my fault that I did not read that. That Yoko scream scared me, dude!!! I thought it came from my kitchen......
Anyway, great video, Chuck's got the moves! and thanks for posting.  ;D

Cool to see them jamming together. It's a bit of a shame that their vocals don't really blend well though. And couldn't somebody take that microphone away from Yoko after the first scream?

on this next song they played their voices really gel during the choruses
-
comparing this to the footage of keith richards and chuck berry is like day and night.
keith kind of backhandedly asks/tells/offers to play the "filler bits" (.... as if chuck doesn't know that's also known as LEAD GUITAR) on chuck's own song
and proceeds to mess it up many times in a row
-
keith adjusts chuck's amp and just.... messes everything up with his patronizing twitchy vibe . . that blows up in his face
--------------------
in this footage you see how great and genuine a musician/person john lennon was
-

and yes, i think someone turned off yoko's mike !
this rocks- go john and chuck GO !  ;D ;yes ;D

And people wonder why I hate Yoko. How can somebody sit there and honestly thought that her screaming added something to the song? I love my wife and she likes to sing, but I dont let her when i'm jamming with people. Theres a reason for it,,,she cant sing and she knows it. Somebody forgot (or was afraid) to tell Yoko.

Indeed! A very wise decision. ;D

Chuck's still a cool performer by the way. I saw him two years ago, he can't play the guitar that well anymore but the voice and charisma are still there. Go see him if you get the chance.

Yoko's real calling was comedy, if only she had a sense of humour.

I know she made me laugh in that video. Maybe she was the straight man?

I don't have anything negative to say about Yoko besides I think that the part when she "screamed" (I honestly don't know what to call it) just wasn't necessary and it slightly ruined this awesome moment a little bit.I think that ruined is too harsh of a word to describe it though but overall like I said,it just wasn't necessary.

She totally sounds like a cat, when she does those sounds.  ;D

I was listening to Sometime In New York City the other day, and my cat Elvis was scared to come inside. When I turned down the sound, he walked right past the stereo.

Poor kitty was terrified of that scary lady!  :P

I was more than patient with Yoko, tolerating her as much as possible, without reaching for a razor blade to slash my wrists. But after what she did to Julian after John's death - now THAT was the last straw. She offered him any one of John's guitars. He chose John's famous Rickenbacker 325 Capri (played on Sullivan and Shea '65). Then she said, "No! That's for Sean!"

b****!

I still think if your going to castigate someone you dont know on an internet forum you should be able to back it up with proof

I ask again, can you prove that Yoko actually said this to Julian ?
