Paul McCartney & Ringo Starr Discuss Early The Beatles Concerts


Surviving members of The Beatles Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr appeared together for a segment on CBS Sunday Morning. The pair of musicians sat with film director Ron Howard at Abbey Road Studios in London to discuss the early stages of the acclaimed band’s historic career.

Howard directed the upcoming documentary film Eight Days A Week: The Touring Years which chronicles The Fab Four’s live performances that took place from 1963 to their final appearance at Candlestick Park in San Francisco in 1966. Newly restored and discovered footage from the Beatlemania era appears in the film, which Howard explains was found in one case undeveloped under a bed. McCartney and Starr talk with CBS correspondent Anthony Mason about the difficulties that came with playing live due to the poor soundsystems and screaming fans that made performing, as McCartney says, “brutal.”
