Possible Beatles reunion at 2012 Olympics?

(1/2) > >>

Hmmmm...

Imagine this for a second: You decide to go to the 2012 London Olympics, and
not only do you get to see an amazing international sporting event, but you get
to see the closest possible thing to a Beatles reunion, too. That's what
organizers of the London event are reportedly hoping for, anyway.

The remaining living members of the Fab Four -- Paul McCartney and Ringo
Starr -- have reportedly been approached to sing at the games next summer,
according to British press. As for the late John Lennon and George Harrison,
they could be represented by someone from their families.

Yikes, I sure hope in that last sentence they don't mean Yoko  ;)

There was a rumour that The Beatles would re-unite for Band Aid (1986?), consisting of Paul, George, Ringo and Julian. These rumours were very strong. But it never happened. I doubt if it will be different this time.

I remember that, and I agree -- doubt it'll be different this time. Plus, it begs the question of what exactly constitutes a "reunion" when two of the four band members are deceased.


Bobber:
True that. Unfortunately, one could hardly call it a reunion. More 'a band with Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr in it'.

emmi_luvs_beatles:
The one thing I hate is when they call it a "Beatles Reunion" when Paul and Ringo are rumored to be singing or working together. Did they call it a reunion when John or George worked on Ringo's tracks? No. You can hardly call it a reunion when it was George, Paul and Ringo being rumored to play together.
