HARRISON, LENNON, MCCARTNEY, AND STARKEY WANT TO BE FAB ALL OVER AGAIN.

I’ve never been the rabid Beatles fan that some people are, but I can still recognize this as a bad idea of epic proportions: James McCartney (Paul’s son) is seriously considering forming a band with Sean Lennon, Dhani Harrison (George’s son), and Zak Starkey (Ringo’s son) because, in McCartney’s mind, “embracing the legacy of the Fab Four has worked to his advantage so far.” (That sets a new bar for understatement by the bored rich kid of a pop music icon). The New Beatles could have an unintended and beneficial side effect: Medicare and Social Security coffers will be unburdened as Baby Boomers keel over in droves from the horror.

    God, it sounds like Jame McCartney would take over his dad’s role a chief slave driver if the new Beatles happened. My advice: Don’t mess with a great thing. Apart from being brilliant, The Beatles are held in such high regard largely because they quit in their prime.
