Great quality clip, reminds me that the DVD release of "Let it Be" is YEARS overdue.
And was that Billy Preston on the keyboards?
I like how the cameraman gettin the upshot is jammin' along laying there on his back.
Oops! It was John's foot tappin.
I thought it belonged to the cameraman on first look.
Ah well. George is darned cute!
Yep, Billy Preston
I felt really sorry for Billy then. He was becoming a regular session player on Beatle's tracks and playing in televised sessions, but the Beatles broke up shortly after that session on the roof.
Wasn't it the last time they ever worked together?
I remember the day well. It was a major news story that night on UK tv news and it stopped all the traffic around the London Street where they were, with all the people on the street looking upwards in wonder at the sound.
And all the police looking slightly embarrased as they knew they wanted to stop it, but who could have stopped the Beatles playing at that time without a riot?
Great video clip, and thank you.
It was their last live performance
They continued to record together for several more months (Abbey Road was recorded later that year and was their last album, even though Let it Be was released later). They formally disbanded on April 10, 1970 when Paul announced he was quitting. Legally, they remained contractually bound to each other until 1976.
Ahh, that's right
I had forgotten that Abbey Road came out later.
Not sure but think
I am not sure,but I think I have seen them performing this song at the same place before.But then Lennon sang one part of the song backwards.Another question that I have to anyone who knows about the Beatles is if Lennons coat was made of human hair.Somebody told me he did this in opposition to animal cruelty.Once again I have no clue and don't claim to be righ t in any of my thoughts/questions.?In any case it's an awesome clip!
I've just found another film clip in my collection of a live session of The Beatles with Billy Preston on an electronic keyboard.
"The Long and Winding Road" with Paul on Piano, and supported by Billy.
I don't have my own web site on a server anywhere, otherwise I would post it on there.
I'll add it to my collection,grab some stills and send them to my gf(working in a different room in the house!)She tends bar part time,her regular customers call her Beatlehead!
Ill be glad when FF reaches a point where
I never see a message saying, "No suitable plugins were found"
I had no problem seeing it in FireFox
You'll get that message in any browser if you don't have the proper plugins installed.
Guess Ill have to find out
I'm having continuing PC problems, so couldn't get into the site past the intro.
But I would like to mention this...
I watched a re-broadcast of "Paul McCartney in Moscow" last weekend, and was blown away! The faces of the people of many ages were glowing as they responded to the performance.
