CBS’s treatment of the Corden show vs. the Ferguson one is day and night. For one thing, they own the Corden version. So they are throwing a bunch of money at it.
Imagine what Ferguson’s show would have been like with all that money, a band, etc.
The McCartney tour was nearly great. Would have been completely great without the smug, giggling idiot being part of it. He esp. interfered with the joy of the pub scene.
I noticed pictures on the wall of the flat showing Paul and the Beatles. So it being a museum makes sense.
The small tastes of Beatlemania here and there was amazing. That just one Beatle can still cause that all this decades later is a testament to what the full thing was like.
Women were crying in the pub. Just like the ones in the theater in a Hard Days Night and on Ed Sullivan. Wow.
