Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr reunited on stage this week at a taping of The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute to The Beatles.
The show was recorded the day after this year’s Grammy Awards, and will be aired on February 9, 50 years to the day after the Beatles made their US television debut on The Ed Sullivan Show.
Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart re-formed Eurythmics to perform their version of ‘The Fool On The Hill.’ Dave Grohl and Jeff Lynne covered ‘Hey Bulldog’. Katy Perry sang ‘Yesterday’ and Pharrell Williams teamed up with Brad Paisley on ‘Here Comes The Sun’.
The two surviving members of The Beatles closed the show. Ringo and Paul appeared together to perform ‘With a Little Help From My Friends’. Each performed a small solo set before their reunion. They were later joined by the ensemble of performers for a celebratory version of ‘Hey Jude’.
“We were in a band. It’s called The Beatles,” said Starr toward the end of the show. “And if we play, John and George are always with us. It’s always John, Paul, George and Ringo.”

It wasn’t much fun being a Beatle in their final days, according to John Lennon.
In a long lost interview with the Village Voice, Lennon said recording Let It Be, the Beatles’ final album, was “hell.” Journalist Howard Smith conducted the interview with Lennon and his wife, Yoko Ono, in 1969, just after the Beatles finished work on the album. The taped interview sat forgotten in Stern’s attic for more than 40 years. It’s now being sold at auction.
Lennon says making Let It Be was an ordeal:
We were going through hell. We often do. It’s torture every time we produce anything. The Beatles haven’t got any magic you haven’t got. We suffer like hell anytime we make anything, and we got each other to contend with. Imagine working with the Beatles: It’s tough.
He added, “It’s tense every time the red light goes on.”
“We never really finished it,” said Lennon about the album. “We really didn’t want to do it. Paul was hustling us to do it.”
