    Well, it looks a bit too slick and they could at least got some guys that LOOK like John, Paul, and George! I mean, we know what they looked like and these aren’t them. Suspension of Disbelief?

    Yup… suspension of disbelief is required, but let’s give it a chance. Hard to believe this thing that we lived could be considered an historical document. I owe so much to the “Boys from Liverpool” !
