I thought this was very funny, particularly the little introductory theme Paul composes for himself at 0:08, very accurate parody of his voice and style.

Funny! I discovered this one by the same person, and I found myself cracking up watching it.

There's also one where Paul makes tea. I'll post it if I get a chance. a-hard-days-night-george-10

Ohh I just love mr. StevieRiks , he's got a load of Beatles parodies on his youtube account. Personally, I think his Lennon impersonations are best. There is a a one in which John calls to Elvis and they have a nice little "chat"- it's absolutely hilarious. And I can't believe how close that man's voice is to John when he puts effort into it

I'm afraid he has something against Brian and Yoko, though 

His Brian Wilson/Paul McCartney phone conversation is also hilarious.

Anyway, to stay on topic, I was surprised to learn about Paul and George being best of friends in the beginning. All opinions that George passed on Paul for a long time seemed to have a certain degree of rankling in them, although I think he made a very astute comment on Paul's 1970 album that it suffered because "he's got nobody to tell him a song's good apart from Linda."

George simply didnt want to have to put up with Pauls overbearing presence in anything musical - the whole 'i'd rather play with Willie Weeks" thing. There is some degree of doubt whether or not George asked Paul to be at the Bangladesh concert from what i can remember (tho someone might be able to provide something concrete).

 

All that materialised thru the Beatle years tho, in the beginning they were very good friends, Paul getting George to audition on top of the bus late one night for a place in The Quarrymen. The 3 of them, John, Paul and George were very close, there is a reason why every other member thru the early years disappeared (the only other one who remained was Stu who had a very strong relationship with John but he found Astrid and left). All 3 got each other and were able to withstand all the crap that they threw out out and that came their way before fame; the disappointments, heartaches, fights, arguements, rejections. All of that formed something that even when they went their separate ways never completely died.

One of the telling comments about the relationship between them all was from John in the Rolling Stone interviews. He threw out all kinds of crap towards the band itself and Paul , everyone knows that, but when asked about Mick Jaggers negative comments about the Beatles John was very very defensive asking who did Mick think he was having a go.

 

To me it is like a family who all grew up and moved on - you're might not see each other for years, heck you might not get on that well and can barely be in the same room, but when it comes down to it all the crap goes out the window. Two examples would be recording All Those Years Ago (Paul, Linda and Denny going to Friar Park studios at George's request) and George in hospital and Paul sitting with him.

MMM, what was the context (the what and the when) of that "Willie Weeks" comment? I'd seen it quoted before but never found out the occasion.

I found the quote below from a google search

"It's all a fantasy putting The Beatles back together again. If we ever do that it's because everyone is broke. I'd rather have Willie Weeks on bass rather than Paul McCartney. Paul is a fine bass player but he's a bit overpowering. I'd join a band with John Lennon any day, but I couldn't join a band with Paul McCartney."

but there was also a reproduced newpaper article reporting with more information from the press conference he gave with a longer slighty different quote (the link box isnt appearing properly on my computer so its -> http://news.google.com/newspap.....94,3635640)

Paul was asked to perform at the CFB (goodness, that came out meaning something other then Concert For Bangladesh to me) but he declined due to the legal issues and general hard feelings that existed at the time. False public hope of a reunion, as well.

Thanks SunKing, do you have a source for that? I've heard and read both sides of whether or not Paul was asked but never seen anything definitive.
