Can't think of anything. The post-breakup Beatles always seemed kind of aloof and removed from much of the then-contemporary music scene.

Paul did mention Jimmy Page in Wings' "Rock Show" though! The lyric goes "What's that man moving across the stage/It looks a lot like the one used by Jimmy Page", and I've always assumed Paul was referring to Page's double-neck Gibson, and I believe Page usually used that guitar to play "Stairway" onstage. So there's that.

I just want to play. I’d like to think I could work opposite Sinatra, B.B. King, the Beatles, or a polka band... - Jazz musician Rahsaan Roland Kirk, 1967

Can Someone move this Thread to All Together Now to Allow for a more general discussion of the only great Led Zepplin song (IMO)

I can't think of any comments either, and I figure that most interviewers would be asking about a possible reunion rather than what they thought x. I'll keep an eye out.

Well, I'll move it then. I figured it was just Beatle-ish enough to squeak by.
