Woah... there's a distinct possibilty I could reach the rooftop (5000 posts) on the 50th anniversary. How cool would that be? There might be a posting spree over the next couple of daysa-hard-days-night-george-10

New interview with Michael Lindsay-Hogg mainly about the rooftop. Has some interesting observations on it. I liked this comment on the suggestion to play on the roof:

The Beatles sort of pawed at the idea. If you gave them an idea, it was like throwing meat into a lion's cage — they'd sniff and paw at it and throw it at each other, then that piece of meat came back in the end, but was different from what you put in the cage.

And he has this to say on a re-release of the film:

You'd have to ask Apple about that, but I'm pretty sure something will be happening for a variety of reasons I can't go into at the moment. It's kind of something we've all been talking about for quite a while and has gone through several iterations, but I think probably in the next 18 months, it will come out again in some form, or altered form, because people have weirdly been calling for it [to be re-released] for some time.

Something is definitely in the pipeline for the 50th Anniversary of the film. I will reveal more in the thread about if Let It Be  will be re-released.

X-posted to the Rooftop Concert thread.

Interview with Barry Miles

“Paul said that on a number of occasions they’d be in the middle of an argument and John would just pull his little granny glasses down the end of his nose, look over the top and say, ‘It’s only me’ and then go back to shouting and blinding and swearing.”
