Lynch Benefit Sparks Beatles Reunion Talk

Filmmaker DAVID LYNCH's upcoming meditation benefit has become a mini-BEATLES reunion with RINGO STARR joining SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY for the show.
MCCartney and Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder were among the first stars to sign up for the Change Begins Within concert at New Yorks Radio City Music Hall on 4 April (09) - and now Starr has joined the performers.
It has yet to be seen if Starr and MCCartney will play together at the benefit - if so, it will mark their first onstage collaboration since the George Harrison tribute show A Concert For George in 2002.
Sheryl Crow, Moby and Donovan, who heads up the musical wing of the David Lynch Foundation, are among the stars on the bill.
Laura Dern, the star of many Lynch movies, will co-host the event with rap mogul Russell Simmons.
Proceeds from the show will benefit the David Lynch Foundation's efforts to teach one million at-risk children to meditate.

Many critics are concerned about Transcendental Meditation being taught in public schools. Here in the US that violates the constitutionally guaranteed separation of Church & State because of the religious trappings of TM.A group of critics, including myself, are organizing a free web event to discuss Lynch's controversial program to bring public school children into the TM fold. It reminds us of Tom Cruise's evangelism for Scientology.If you are interested in learning more about the controversy and web event, check out knappfamilycounseling.com/tmconcert.html .John M.

Just because one practices TM does not mean one does not also pray to the Lord God. Idiotic remarks like the first one are made by narrow-minded people. There is nothing at all wrong with children learning to meditate. But that is something that does not necessarily need to be taught in schools.

I really would Love to see Paul, Ringo, Sean Lennon, Dahni Harrison, maybe Julian Lennon and Zak Star in a mini tour of Beatle songs. The time for it to happen is way overdue. Not sure if Paul's son James plays Music, ...Come on guys help me get this idea out there

This will be a great show. The new documentary, SCHOOL OF THOUGHT, will show you why these music superstars are doing this benefit concert at Radio City. The film is about Transcendental Meditation in schools and what the David Lynch Foundation is doing to bring meditation to students everywhere.
