Default Tony Sheridan & Pete Best on French TV -19 October 2011

We, French fans, had decided months ago to celebrate with dignity the 50th anniversary of the My Bonnie single release, and so were lucky enough to welcome in Paris Tony Sheridan and Pete Best who gave a special concert at the Divan du Monde, a historical venue (built in 1809, near the Red Light district of Pigalle), which is known as the biggest of the small auditoriums in Paris. Tony and Pete, backed by the AfterBeat group (a Beatles tribute band), played in front of a full 200 on Tuesday 18 October, and then Tony gave his own concert on Thursday 20 October, backed by his own group (featuring Irish guitarist Dara McNamara).

Wednesday 19 October was a kind of day off for the music, but not for the media activities. Among the many interviews Pete and Tony gave on this occasion, one is particularly moving and touching, firstly because it’s not so often to see both of them together on a TV set, and secondly because after all these years, it seems that a bond was strengthened between them. As a result, the interview is pleasant to see, all the more that their analysis of the Hamburg phenomenon contains, in retrospect, some interesting remarks…

So, here’s the full 20 minute-interview as it was conducted by journalist Patrick Simonin on TV5 Monde in Paris on 19 October, and broadcast on 1st December 2011 – with the French translator voice-over (sorry…), but Best and Sheridan remain very understandable though.

Eric ;)
