    Considering John Lennon died in 1980 and George Harrison died in 2001, I suppose any Beatles reunion in 2018 would be "mini," wouldn't it, Mr. Headline Writer? Doy!

    Emma Stone, who won both an Academy Award and a Golden Globe award in 2017 for her portrayal of aspiring actress Mia Dolan in La La Land, stars with Paul McCartney in a new video for Who Cares, a song from Paul's Egypt Station CD. The video is.......strange. Hurry and watch!

    Paul, Ringo, Yoko Ono and Olivia Harrison are cooperating with Jackson on this project, which will disprove the public perception that the Beatles were "at each other's throats" prior to their break-up.

    Peter Jackson to spearhead new Beatles in-studio film drawn from Let It Be footage
    Los Angeles Times, Jan 30 2019 10:05 AM

    Beatles fans have two cinematic deliveries coming their way. In the pipeline is a long-awaited restoration of the 1970 film Let It Be, which will follow an entirely new film being assembled by New Zealand director Peter Jackson from rare and never-released images and clips.

    Jackson's film has not been titled and no release date has been unveiled but it will draw from the same 55 hours of footage of the Beatles in the recording studio shot 50 years ago this month by English director Michael Lindsay-Hogg for the film that became Let It Be, which documented the group's creative process in the final months of their professional lives together. "The 55 hours of never-before-seen footage and 140 hours of audio made available to us ensures this movie will be the ultimate 'fly-on-the-wall' experience that Beatles fans have long dreamt about," Jackson said. "It’s like a time machine transports us back to 1969 and we get to sit in the studio watching these four friends make great music together."

    The announcement, released today on the 50th anniversary of the group's famous rooftop concert above their Apple offices in London, stated that a restored version of Lindsay-Hogg’s long-out-of-circulation film will be released after Jackson's. Jackson will work with producer Clare Olssen and editor Jabez Olssen, his collaborators on the World War I documentary They Shall Not Grow Old.

    Here is some news that Beatles fans will really get a bang out of. And as soon as I wrote that line, I regretted it.

    Big Bang Theory cast and creator featured on new SiriusXM series 'Big Bang Beatles'
    Billboard, Feb 4 2019

    Beatles fans are getting a little something special on SiriusXM's The Beatles Channel through Thursday, February 7, courtesy of a group of primetime TV Beatlemaniacs. "Big Bang Beatles” features four cast members from CBS' long-running smash sitcom The Big Bang Theory – Jim Parsons, Mayim Bialik, Simon Helberg and Johnny Galecki – along with the show's creator and executive producer Chuck Lorre. The quintet will be playing DJ, choosing their favorite Beatles tunes and talking about them.

    “When we came back this season at the first table read, Mayim Bialik came over to me and said, 'Oh my God. SiriusXM has this brand new station about the Beatles and I've been listening to it and it's just great,'" said associate director Gay Linvill, who describes herself as a huge Beatles fan. She asked Bialik if she'd be interested in doing the station's 'My Fab Four' feature, where celebrities make a playlist of their favorite Beatles tunes. “'Oh my God, I'd love to do it,” Bialik told Linvill. "I called Lou Simon, who's an old friend of mine and oversees the Beatles Channel and asked him if he might be interested in various cast members doing a 'My Fab Four' and he jumped at it," Linvill said. Simon suggested doing a special program.

    Simon confirmed today that the channel will air more of the commentaries recorded with the cast members and Lorre: “They did so many for us I couldn't use them all in the first show. So I used about half of them, leaving me enough content to create a second show. I'm going to hold that until the spring. "

    The “Big Bang Beatles” series runs until Thursday on SiriusXM's The Beatles Channel (Channel 18). The remaining broacasts are Tuesday, February 5 at 11 AM ET and Thursday, February 7 at 12 PM ET. The show can be heard free on demand on the SiriusXM app.

    I'm getting a headache thinking about the possibility of Christopher Cross attempting to sing Helter Skelter – but these shows should be really good.

    Spanish-born painter and sculptor Pablo Picasso died April 8, 1973 in Mougins, France. He was 91. Just before he died, he poured a glass of wine for his friend Armand Antebi and said, "Drink to me. Drink to my health. You know I can't drink any more." Those were Picasso's last words.

    In 1973, actor Dustin Hoffman challenged Paul McCartney – who had said he could write a song about anything – to write a song about Picasso's last words. Paul wrote the song and recorded it with his band Wings for the Band On The Run album. The Beatles Channel just played it. Here is Picasso's Last Words:
