Been on leave for a couple of days and rewatched The Beatles anthology series on dvd.
Beautiful documentary and I forgotten so much. Loved the jam Paul,George and Ringo did and the reminiscing of the old days with John

So hope the series gets a polish and a digital download release soon or maybe a Netflix\prime release too.

That’s so weird that you guys are talking about the Anthology because two weeks ago when Neil Innes died I watched the Rutles movie and I had forgotten how funny it was. Then I thought about the Anthology and later my local radio station has a Breakfast with the Beatles program and they played “Real Love” and that really made me want to watch the Anthology. I have to search for the DVDs as for some reason they’re not with my other DVDs.

They played in a tiny venue in Macclesfield, you can imagine it was pretty big news at the time (and still is)

Loads of people standing outstand not being able to get in (because they were too young)

After the gig they went to a chippy down the road (I presume this was waters green)

What does everyone think of Julian Lennon's music?

I must admit, I only knew a handful of songs but I heard a few more the other day. While the ones I heard are typical 80s pop, they're not that bad. I always kinda feel bad for him as he was just trying to do what he loved doing (music) and no matter what he did everyone compared him with John.
Here's a song off his 1998 album Photograph Smile which sounds very Beatle-y. The video is entertaining he even has a Yoko character.
