THE DEADNESS OF THE BEATLES DOES NOT PRECLUDE REUNIONS

Surely Ringo Starr and Paul McCartney aren't so desperate for cash they'd be helping out with "new Beatles songs" for a Las Vegas show in association with Cirque Du Soleil. And presumably they're not doing it for the artistic opportunity of providing a soundtrack for some juggling and clowns. Which raises the question: why?

"The show involves the creation, by the remixing and remastering of The Beatles' recorded performances, of completely new music, which will be featured in the show, and which should lead to the release of the show album," Apple Corps' Neil Aspinall told the Daily Telegraph.

Oh... actually, it probably is about money, isn't it?

oh man. Now it starts. Lennon and Harrison could be counted on to prevent this sort of thing from happening, but with them gone...well, get ready for all sorts of horrors.

i stand corrected--turned out Harrison actually was the one who had the idea in the first place.
