Default How Many Beatles \'Reunions\'?

OK, just to get this going, I've always wanted to start this thread, and everyone can throw in whatever theyve heard or read. But heres the question: How many times have three or more Beatles gotten 'back together' for something or other? My memory was jogged when reading the 'wives say hello' topic. George wanted Paul and Ringo and he to run together for the Natural Law Party, to be PMs! I think this was in the early 90s; Olivia talked him out of it. Paul told him George didnt want that kind of responsibility!
There was Eric Claptons wedding reception in 1977, where Paul, George and Ringo played some oldies as well as, reportedly, "Sgt. Pepper"!
I know there were several others, but they totally slip my memory. Well, theres John, George and Ringo playing together for Johns "Plastic Ono Band" LP. But who can name some others they've heard about?

I have heard of a meeting, somewhere in the 70's of Paul, George and Ringo. John would come to. As they sat together someone deliverd the message that John couldn't come.

And Legs..I think the one you mean is where John sent balloons over instead of a response, and George called and yelled at him, something like "You get over here, you, Lennon!". Yoko and her Taot cards deciding if he could see PG&R. Hmmf.

i think it was something like that.

And my contribution to this thread??
There was a reunion with John and Paul onstage with Stevie Wonder in 1974 or 76 during John's "Lost Weeken year", in which Paul invited John to help him with the recording of Venus and Mars. john had originally agreed to lend Paul a hand, and even asked Mae Pang about it. She told him it would be a fabulous idea and a great opportunity to save his tattered friendship. Unfortunately, around that time Yoko came back into the scene, and just a few days before joining Paul in the scheduled date at the studio, John called tu turn his invitation down.

DARN IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! [img]graemlins/scream3.gif[/img]

Wow, due to the hard feelings after the band broke up, I thought the group rarely spoke to each other, it seems they socialized quite a lot. George played on "Imagine"? I never knew that.

Thanks for clearing that up, I read that John wanted to perform at the Concert for Bangladesh, but due to his resentment of Yoko, George turned him down. Did George and Yoko make peace before his death?

According to the Barbara Bach fan website, Ringo and Barbara had dinner with John and Yoko at the Plaza Hotel in New York on November 26, 1980, shortly before Lennon's death. Presumably Lennon would have been invited to Ringo's wedding (April 27, 1981), in which case this would have finally brought about the long awaited Beatles re-union:
