Hey, thanks for posting that! And aspinall_lover, I have directv and that '60s special is on for me too, and after that at like 2:00 in the morning is this thing called "Best of the Beatles". I thought I'd tell you in case you get that like me. There's no description for it, I wonder what it's about. Too bad it's on so late, but I'm still gonna watch it. I don't see anything about the Rain tribute band playing, though. :(

^^^^^^No...........no "Best of Beatles" after that.  Bob Dylan in concert.  So I watched on Lifetime last night the made-for-TV movie, "Coco Chanel".................I LOVE Chanel designs and stuff.  I've got a fantastic book on her life and it is amazing.  She was such a pioneer in women dressing in "what THEY want", NOT what a man wants.  Great, strong lady.  You girls need to check it out..............

^^^^^It was a very good movie, girlfriend!!!  Watch the TV listings to see when it's going to be on again.  And it does really follow her life somewhat closely to the book.  If you want the book title and stuff, PM me and I'll send. :) :)

I've caught the Rain concert on PBS a couple of times.  They're pretty good--they don't sound exactly like the Beatles (duh) but it was still fun to watch.  I also enjoyed that they changed costumes as they went through the Beatles' career, and they even dressed up as Sgt. Peppers.

My biggest gripe is that their George didn't sound very much like the real George, but he (fake George) is an excellent guitar player.
