Quoted from Rezdog:
Disney+ Beatles doc clocks in at 8 hours….and it’s too short
Watched it over thanksgiving holiday and it has stuck with me all week. Enough so that I just finished rewatching part 1 this morning.
I told someone on another thread that I was not interested in seeing the rehash. And then I changed my mind and took out a Disney subscription and watched all three episodes. And now I am watching them again.
Here are a couple of things I got from it.
1) Their reverence for the late manager, Brian Epstein. They referred to him as Mr. Epstein. Not as Brian, but as Mr. Epstein. That surprised me.
2) They were toying around and singing something about Pakistani. Pakistan immigrants. England was having an immigration problems at the time in 1969. But there was a young immigrant from Zanzibar who immigrated to England, and then founded a super group in 1970. I'm sure you all have heard of Freddy Mercury and Queen.
3) In my young boy's mind in the 60s, I thought these guys had it made. Everybody was screaming. Everybody wanted a piece of you. You are on top of the world. My friends and I were all about The Beatles The Beatles The Beatles. That sort of stuff.
And with this Get Back session, I see the hard work and the drudgery of coming up with new music. I see 4 guys stuck together for days on end. They have to get along. And maybe, just maybe Pete Best did not fit in and Ringo was the better guy to live with.
