Random Thoughts about The Beatles "Reunion" on Larry King Live

I watched that Beatles "reunion" on Larry King Live tonight. Talk about a joke. They made a big deal about something that was nothing. I will probably write this word a bunch of times in this post, but it was a joke. King asked horrible questions and it looked like all four of them were very uncomfortable.

First of all, the word "reunion" doesn't make any sense. The last chance for a Beatle reunion ended on the night of December 8, 1980 when John Lennon was shot four times in front of his apartment. Anyone with half a brain knows that. Yoko Ono and Olivia Harrison are and never will be Beatles, so get over it. Just lose the word, plain and simple.

My favorite moment of the hour broadcast was when King indirectly asked about McCartney's divorce. Paul responded he doesn't talk about it and thanks for bringing it up. I just thought exchange summed up the whole interview. Plus, Larry King was asking dumb and obvious questions that a true Beatles fan already knows the answer to. "Did you know you would be as big as you were" questions have been asked a million times. Or even "Do you still play for the money" questions, which is just as bad.

Overall, I thought it was horrible and it was lame. It got to the point when Paul and Ringo were making fun of Larry King, which I thought was funny. So if you missed the interview and were disappointed. Don't worry. You didn't miss anything other than a big joke on the part of CNN and Larry King Live.
