"Both my sons tell me they are not going to do it," Starr is quoted by WENN as saying. Ah well, perhaps that’s for the best. While the notion of a McCartney, a Lennon, a Harrison and a Starr (or two) on stage would have been concert promoter’s dream, some things look better on paper. A legacy like that of the Beatles must be handled with care.

Paul McCartney himself admitted such a thing when he revealed to Rolling Stone earlier this year that although the Beatles considered reforming while they were all still alive, they decided against it lest they cast a pall on their own past.
