I was reading this article and a portion of it stood out to me…


In 1976, with Bicentennial fever raging, Sid Bernstein, the legendary promoter who’d first imported The Beatles in 1964, offer them $230 million to reunite for an American tour.

What could of possibly made them turn that down? I’ve also hear in somewhere that there were rumors about a reunion concert to take place in Central Park around 1980


$230,000,000 in 1976 ? $980,193,693.69 in 2016

Because the price was too high, If they offered $20 then maybe something would of happened.

I guess this was the offer to which John said that he’d even be ready to stand on his head if offered that kind of money?

I’m sure many of you have seen this where Lorne Michaels almost reunited John and Paul…..rtney-snl/

Jack Douglas just gave an interview where he said John talked about The Beatles all the time and he and Paul were “already in the process” of reuniting when he got shot.…..l_days.php

That would add to the level of turmoil going on in Paul’s mind when he was told the news of John’s death.
