Weird that Jane would be there...? Especially as she's completely distanced herself and refused to talk about ANY of her experiences in the 60s and with Paul.

I thought about that, but then I realized that's probably me reading too much into it. Her not wishing to cheapen the relationship by discussing it doesn't mean she doesn't have an amicable relationship with Paul.

I'm not sure she could have been there, and this may be a case of mistaken identity. She is currently appearing in a touring production of Moon Tiger, based on the Penelope Lively novel, and it seems she was on stage at the Everyman Theatre in Cheltenham during that week, with a review of the production published on the 28 January - presumably of a performance on the 27th.

http://www.gloucestershireecho.....story.html

Moon Tiger tours until the end of February, and in interviews Jane has expressed the hope that it will transfer to the West End.

On the special, it seemed to draw a good audience, ranging between 13.35 million and 14.785 million. Not the audience share of 50 years ago, and beaten into second place by Olympics coverage, but neither of those is a surprise.

A full breakdown of the figures can be found here:

^^  Exactly. She hasn't sold her story (I'm sure she must have a lot to say), and I really admire that. They still get on, though, and she still played a part in ''the Beatles story''.

What I said about Japanese people, yes Yoko was dancing, and in that way she expresses her feelings, but look at how she replies to some of the questions hse's been asked about John's death. She's so cold about it sometimes, almost like she doesn't care. But I'm sure she does. She seemed to just accept it so easily, and that's what I meant. It seems inbuilt in people of that culture to deal with pain and loss differently to us. Anyway, my point was that his looks could be deceiving. If he always looks bored, then how can you tell when he is and when he's not? (he can't always be bored)

EDIT: Mja posted before me. Maybe she wasn't even there, then.

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.

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).
