John Lennon - Paul Mccartney: 'John Lennon And I Considered Reunion For Saturday Night Live'
John Lennon and Paul McCartney almost reunited on U.S. TV in the mid-1970s - for a bargain $1,500 (£940).
MCCartney reveals he was visiting his former Beatles bandmate in New York when Lennon suggested they should take Saturday Night Live producer Lorne Michaels up on his offer to perform on the show.
Michaels had previously offered the Fab Four $3,000 (£1,875) to perform three Beatles numbers on his weekly comedy show as part of a Snl skit.
MCCartney tells Access Hollywood, "He (Lennon) said, 'We should go down, just you and me... We'll say, 'There's only two of us, we'll make half the money...' And for a second..."
But the idea never came to fruition: "It would have been work and we were having a night off and so we elected to not go... It was a nice idea. We nearly did it."
