Mccartney Pays Tribute To Lennon
SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY remembered late BEATLE JOHN LENNON at DAVID LYNCH's Foundation Benefit gala on Saturday (04Apr09) by revealing he wrote HERE TODAY as a tribute to his former bandmate and songwriting partner.
MCCartney headlined the three-hour concert, held to raise funds for director Lynch's meditation charity, at New York's Radio City Music Hall.
Dedicating Here Today to Lennon, he said, "I love New York and John Lennon loved New York. I wrote this song for John after he passed away. It was a one-sided conversation saying things to him I never said."
There was a mini-Beatles reunion at the concert when Ringo Starr joined MCCartney on vocals for A Little Help With My Friends and then got behind the drums for the encore, I Saw Her Standing There.
