What do you think about the West End show about the Beatles “John, Paul, George, Ringo and… Bert”?

Well, we haven’t seen it, so it’s difficult to say. I am sure it’s good, but it’s just about a certain period; I think it’s a play which was put together from newspaper articles during the bad period when Allen Klein was in and there were business troubles. I think it’s entertaining, but I also think that it is a bit funny to do it when the people are still living. But it doesn’t matter.

Supposedly the one who plays Paul isn’t really anything like him; the one who is supposed to the most like any of them is the one who plays John, but it’s easy to portray John anyway…
