Paul Mccartney - Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr reunite at Beatles tribute
Sir Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr reunited on stage for TV special 'The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute to The Beatles' at The Los Angeles Convention Centre yesterday (27.01.14).
The trio of stars were among many musicians who performed at The Los Angeles Convention Centre yesterday (27.01.14) for 'The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute to The Beatles', which celebrated the band's appearance on 'The Ed Sullivan Show'.
Recalling the iconic performance, Paul said on stage: ''At first when asked, I wondered whether it was the right thing to do.
''They said, 'You don't understand the importance of 'The Ed Sullivan Show' on America'. And I didn't understand until then.''
Drummer Ringo 73, told the audience: ''We were in a band called The Beatles and whenever we play George and John are always with us.''
Paul, 71, added: ''Tonight we are remembering our beautiful friends John and George.''
The last surviving Beatles came together after their duet at the Grammys to perform 'With a Little Help From My Friends' and 'Hey Jude'.
They were watched by John's widow, Yoko Ono, 80, and George's widow, Olivia, while a number of famous faces introduced the acts, including Tom Hanks, Jeff Bridges, Sean Penn, Johnny Depp and Kate Beckinsale.
In between songs, vintage clips from the band's films, live shows and press conferences were screened along with footage of 'Beatlemania' at its peak.
