Paul McCartney says Beatles would have reformed if they were all aliveJuly 26, 2012
Speaking to Shortlist.com, Sir Paul McCartney has said that if all the member of the peoples were still alive, they would have had a reunion by now.
"Yeah, I think all things are possible. Anything could’ve happened," he stated. "We could’ve decided we’d reform by now or we could’ve got together for big anniversaries or a big charity gig or something. It would’ve been a great thing to do. But obviously we can’t do that, so that’s that."
But while this sounds like a dream come true to a lot of Beatles fans, McCartney went on to say that he's happy a band reunion never happened, even when it was was possible. "But the thing with The Beatles was that we realized that we’d come full circle. We had offers to reform and we said, 'You know what? It won’t be as good.' Because that period when we were The Beatles, it was damn good and we never really ruined it. So, actually, to do it as older guys, being a bit rusty, in a way I’m glad we didn’t."
The closest we'll get to a real reunion of the Beatles anytime soon is when Sir Paul closes the Opening Ceremony later this month.
