I hope to God it doesn't occur and that Paul, Ringo, Olivia and Yoko see sense and veto the idea completely- you can't recapture the magic with two living breathing persons and two holograms. I'd find the experience deeply discomforting and somehow morally wrong.

So... My turn! I was hoping for this type of response. It would truly make me ill. Should they? I think I've already made it clear that's a no!!! Could they? Hmmmmmm... I guess they could use footage from the roof from Get Back. I just don't think there is enough to create a proper hologram. And while for some reason I think Yoko might actually say yes (as Mithvaean mentioned people seem to really want to see John like this and it would be incredibly emotional) Olivia would eventually say no... Meaning she'd laugh her butt off for an hour first. Would they? No. Neither Paul nor Ringo would ever dishonor their fallen brothers like this.

Oh.... Hey "Into the sky". Shea in 3-D? That would be mind blowing at a theater. Cool idea.

So I posted another topic on whether or not Paul and Ringo should play with their fallen brothers at the Olympics using holograms and yadda, yadda, yadda most of you hated the idea.  Me too by the way.  Next question.

 

Should Paul play a tune, say Yesterday, with hologram Paul on tour?  Maybe using the Sullivan footage?  I am FOR this one.  I think that would be very cool.  A visual testament to the song's timelessness.  What say you?

Beatles Examiner article on radio host Mark Silverman's idea to have a Beatles reunion at Candlestick Park featuring John and George holograms.

Personally, I find the whole hologram thing horrifically tacky, and if I were a celebrity, I'd stipulate in my will that my estate ensures that such a thing never happens to my likeness.

But given the excitement over the Tupac and Michael Jackson holograms, I feel like I'm in the minority. What do you think?

Beware of sadness. It can hit you. It can hurt you. Make you sore and what is more, that is not what you are here for. - George

Check out my fan video for Paul's song "Appreciate" at Vimeo or YouTube.
