Paul is seen performing “It’s So Easy” and “Bo Diddley”, while Denny is seen singing “Raining In My Heart” with Don Everly of The Everly Brothers. Guests in the audience include former Monkee Micky Dolenz, Superman actor Christopher Reeve, DJ Alan Freeman, David Frost, former member of The Faces Ronnie Lane, former 10cc drummer Kevin Godley plus Paul’s old friend, the actor Victor Spinetti.
