From Beatles in Rolling Stone: A Timeline – Rolling Stone:

Two Beatles participated in interviews for Rolling Stone’s 20th anniversary issue, which also coincided with the release of the Beatles catalogue on CD for the first time. Naturally, the latter fact brought the Beatles to the forefront of the magazine’s conversations with Paul McCartney and George Harrison. “When I heard the first side of [Sgt. Pepper’s] this time, I thought it had finished,” McCartney said. “There was enough on the first side for a whole album. And then it flips over and you’ve got ‘Day in the Life’ to come. So without boasting too heavily, I really thought it was a great album.” Harrison discussed his disillusionment with people trying to reunite the Beatles. “If somebody asks me to do something, and then next thing I find out they’ve also asked Paul and Ringo … I don’t want to be set up, put in a situation where I’m tricked into being in the Beatles again,” he said.
