The Beatles Reunite

Paul McCartney has once again proved that he gets by with a little help from his friends—by reuniting with Ringo Starr. Last night's performance at Radio City Music Hall was the first time the pair have sung together since George Harrison’s memorial in 2002. The charity concert was a benefit for the David Lynch Foundation, which is run by the famed film director of the same name and serves at-risk teens by encouraging them to meditate. Of course, spiritualism is one of The Beatles’ longtime causes, dating back to their romp with the Maharishi in India. But according to one Daily News critic, the performance’s hippie emphasis dulled the crowd’s buzz: “While meditation can be nice, exciting music needs stress and tension too.”
