Default Sir Paul\'s film to mark Revolution

Sir Paul's film to mark Revolution Nov 7 2003

Daily Post

SIR Paul McCartney is to head celebrations to mark the Russian Revolution tomorrow.

A concert film of his performance in Moscow's Red Square earlier this year will be a highlight of Russian TV programmes to mark the anniversary of the 1917 revolution.

Ironically the music of McCartney and The Beatles typified a spirit of free thinking which spread throughout the USSR and broug ht an end to Communism.

From the band's heyday and into the Eighties their music was banned - fans could not buy their records and radio play was forbidden.

The concert film Paul McCartney In Red Square features pundits talking about the Beatles' influence in eroding the strength of Russia's political system.

Timothy Ryback, professor of political studies at the Salzburg Institute said: "There was no more pervasive force throughout the Soviet bloc than The Beatles."

November 1917 saw the Bolsheviks seizing power in Russia after Czar Nicholas II was dethroned earlier in the year.

I saw the red square concert on A&E

It was kinda funny....they stopped Paul from ridding his bike.
