Sean looked like he was having fun to me, I remember a shot of him "air-guitaring" to one of the songs.  He certainly did not looked "bored" to me...:-)

The Flaming Lips performing 'Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds' on Letterman last week with Sean Lennon.  Would've much preferred to see Julian perform the song that he inspired his Father to create, especially after this performance which I think is rather cheesy.  Sean looks like he's having fun though...:-)

I sent an email to my friend to double-check. I did find it odd there were no wire images of her from the event, but celebrities don't always opt to pose.

Edit: False alarm, she saw Peter Asher and thought a woman with him was Jane.

That's what was so confusing...his body was air guitaring but his face was as flat affect as you can get.

I saw that last week...brutal. I don't like the Lips at all anyway but this version was lousy. No reason for Sean to be there other than the fact that he's John's son, too...added nothing to the song and had NOTHING to do with its creation (his brother on the other hand...)

Well, in fairness, he does produce music. Someone posted to one of his songs on Reddit, and it wasn't bad, I'll edit with the link. Edit: Here it is.

That said, none of the performances on Letterman other than Broken Bells impressed me much.

Oh, I wasn't saying Sean has no musical talent...rather that he added nothing to that version of the song, which turned it from a joyful and surreal psychedelic soundscape into an dirge-like exercise in fueling Wayne Coyne's massive ego.

Gotcha. It was a hot mess, for sure.

Is it not more strange that Peter was there than Jane (though we now know she wasn't)?

No. Not really. Peter Asher, as half of Peter and Gordan, had big American hits with McCartney songs - World Without Love, credited to him and John, though John hated it, and Woman, credited to Bernard Webb. And in the late-60s he became Apple's A&R man. A huge part of his life involved The Beatles.

Have you ever seen the Austin City Limits that the Flaming Lips did with Beck around 2003? Wayne Coyne is clearly trying to upstage Beck during his set (waving his arms, flashing strobe lights, etc.- some of it was planned, but some of it was not) and at one point Beck clearly shoots him a dirty look. Wayne kept on doing his theatrics anyway. I believe they parted ways after that tour they did together and both Wayne and Beck took potshots at the other in the press.

Yeah... I suppose so. Never thought of that.

Anyway...

Since I haven't sent he topic brought up yet, how about we discuss the 50th anniversary tribute show that aired on CBS on Sunday, or any of the events that took place this weekend? Shall we?

Not only that, Peter and Paul have been close friends since '63 when Paul moved into the Asher house and that friendship survived the break-up with Jane to the present day.

We already had a discussion on this. Please feel free to post your thoughts here.

Speaking of Beatles 50th anniversary week performances on Letterman, Lenny Kravitz's "Get Back" was my favorite (I also love that the drummer had tea towels draped over his drum heads a la Ringo).

I forgot to thank you for your double-check, parlance. I had exactly the same thought it seems you did, a picture! I Googled Jane and news - wanting to discover any picture there might be - and found all the Moon Tiger articles. While they didn't entirely rule out the possibility, it did make it look unlikely to me, so you have my thanks for looking further into what you had heard.

I kinda have mixed feelings from watching the show.  First up, I didn't bother with the various artists doing their tributes, although I wished that I had of for I forgot all about Dhani Harrison, I first started watching during Ringo's riveting (as always) performance of 'Boys' so I guess I missed 'Matchbox' or something.  Ringo looked and sounded great, not only does he continue to show the excitement and exhuberance of a man half his age but his voice still sounds as good as it did on 1973's 'Ringo' album.  Paul, on the other hand, doesn't sound so much like Paul anymore I'm afraid to say and I'm having a harder time stomaching listening his voice these days which appears to be deteriorating rapidly, it's not too bad on the mellower ballads but he really should stop trying to belt out 'Birthday' at his age, there was a thread the other day where a few of you laid into the tribute bands but most of them sound a helluva lot better than Paul did last night, I'm sorry.  Paul gets away with it because he's Sir Paul and he usually has a band covering for him, but even the others sounded a bit off last night or like their best performances were long behind them as well.

 

That's not to say that the night wasn't full of nice moments, but if it weren't for the star studded audience strutting their stuff, I'd have to think that the reviews wouldn't have been that great for the spotlight would then be shone on the subpar performances.  Paul's set was salvaged eventually at the end with 'Hey Jude' which always seems to succeed, and seeing (I wish I could've heard him too) Ringo drumming again on the song was the highlight of the show for me, Ringo looked like he was into that one and probably would've sounded great had the soundman not preferred Abe's drums for the mix.  Paul made a comment about feeling uneasy about doing the show while onstage, something about "doing a tribute to himself" which was almost what it really felt like to me, someone doing a tribute of someone else other than him and it showed.  The previous Paul/Ringo reunions had a brilliance to them that this one lacked, perhaps because none of the others were as hyped as this one to be fair.  Just compare last night's version of 'With A Little Help From My Friends' to the last time they played it together (2009 I believe) and the Grammy rendition sounds like a bad take by comparison, not Ringo's "Johnny-One-Note" vocals, but the band is all over the place, maybe too much celebrating before the show?

 

The one thing that kept going through my mind while watching this was that this could very possibly be the last time that we see them onstage together ever again, and although that prospect saddened me before switching on the show, it now feels like absolutely the right thing to do after seeing it, there's a "Las Vegas-style" washed up kinda feeling creeping over the musicianship.  The 'Hey Jude' finale was pretty good and they should leave it at that, nice images of Paul & Ringo playing together for ole times sake and leave the tributes for the tribute acts for they're much better at it than they are at this stage in their lives...:-)  

I am Jack's complete lack of surprise.

Billy, later in your post you talk as if you saw more of the show, so i'm not sure what you meant exactly, but you really should check out the covers.  For the guitar duos alone (one was truly for the ages).  Plus as you've probably seen by other posts that there were some really well done covers.  The whole show was really well done, granted a lot of the stuff they talked about we already know, like the beatles' childhoods and stuff, although I learned a couple things.  Oh, and yes Dhani played, a real part, and sang.  It's incredible how much he sounds like George.
