    I hope I look half as good as that when I'm 78.

    On the BBC you can listen to the two parts of the show that Sean made.
    If you look just a little further you will see the complete interviews he taped with Paul, Elton, and Julian.
    They were later chopped up and put into the program, but the entire interview is available to enjoy as well.

    It’s amazing ! I think that his positive outlook and diet play a big role. I always love seeing how healthy and good both he and Ringo look.

    I absolutely loved all of the conversations, especially between Sean and Paul, I’d love to hear them speak again in a longer form. Sean raised some interesting points about their musical connection and how he felt he could see Paul’s influence on “How?”. I also wanted Paul to respond with his views on “Mind Games” and “Number 9 Dream”; I wonder if he was silent about them because he doesn’t remember them or doesn’t know them ?

    The most interesting thing about the Julian podcast was realising how much he sounded like John Cleese!

    Considering that Paul sent nothing, except a video from his last concert to Ringo for his 80th birthday, I have to imagine the real reason Paul is with Alec Baldwin is to talk about MIII. Baldwin hosts the popular NPR podcast Here's The Thing. I guess he was hired out by the Beatles channel to create some Lennon talk, but surely there's more to come in a podcast format.

    That’s a great theory - I hope you’re right!

    All Lennon at 80 specials, including the uncut McCartney interview: BBC Radio 2 - John Lennon at 80 - Available now

    Including many cuts from the new remixes, which are being played on BBC Radio 2 since this week. Like 'Nobody Told Me' from 01:37:05 on in this program, otherwise not played during the specials: Sounds of the 80s with Gary Davies - Premier League - BBC Sounds

    Yes, I've never hear him mention any other songs but 'Instant Karma!', 'Imagine', 'Beautiful Boy' and of course 'How Do You Sleep?'. Especially nothing from 1973/1974. I hope he even knows of the 'Beef Jerky' shout-out to him.

    I would love it if you are correct; that certainly seems very likely and a great way of promoting the album.

    I have a 1974 interview with him in which he talks about Walls and Bridges:

    "It's a very good, great album, but I know he can do better. I heard I Am The Walrus today for instance, and that's what I mean. I know he can do better than Walls and Bridges. I reckon Walurs is better, it's more adventurous, it's more exciting."

    But of course it was fresh back then. Maybe he hasn't heard John's albums in a long while and just remembers a few songs.

    Interesting quote - thanks! I’m always curious about their thoughts on each others’ work after the split. I’d much rather hear about that than some of the minutiae that gets discussed on Beatle threads here.

    About a year later, in 1975, I thought that Magneto And Titanium Man wasn't as good as Eleanor Rigby or Penny Lane. ;)

    No solo Beatle was better, more adventurous, and more exciting in 1974-75 compared to 1966-1967. (Although they did have their solo moments...)

    I guess this was Paul's subconscious lashing out (in a pseudo-polite way) in response to the trash-talk that he was getting from John and the other Fabs in the early 1970s, until they all came around and decided that Paul was right about Klein.

    Oh, sure. But there's something about John's solo career, and I'm not sure if Paul is hinting at that. John started writing only about very personal or very political/social matters. I remember something he said along the lines that good artists have to deal with very personal or very relevant issues, that Yoko opened his eyes about it. That's ok, but I think John lost his whimsical side, his surreal side. I Am the Walrus, to get to the point Paul made, is unthinkable in any solo Lennon album ("I was the walrus, but now I'm John", why couldn't he be the walrus for one song?). There are a couple of exceptions (#9 Dream comes to mind), but generally, I think John limited himself in his solo career.

    With the other three, their solo careers lack the infuence and dynamic of the band, but they kept doing what they did in The Beatles. You can take any late Beatles song by Paul and find a place for it in one of his solo albums, the same goes for George and Ringo.

    Yes, it seems that way.

    And #9 Dream to me is one of his most Beatlesque songs. I wish he’d done more of that.
