I have this magazine. See link I remember being oh so hopefully that they'd except Bill Sargent's offer of 50 million dollars (a helluva lot of money in 1976) to reunite for a concert. They turned him down (of course).

It could have been. But I remember Paul being most reluctant, enjoying much success with Wife and Wings. John was busy playing daddy with the arrival of Sean. George and Ringo were game though.

I remember Lorne Michaels, producer of Saturday Night Live, appealing to the Beatles to re-unite on the show, and offering them three thousand bucks. I tried to find a video clip on youtube but there was none. The funny part was Harrison showing up, and Lorne explaining that no, the three grand was for all four of them and Harrison saying that it was chintzy. Lorne then explained that they could split it any way they liked, if they felt like giving Ringo less, that was fine with him. The whole thing was brilliant.
