Watched the first episode of Peter Jackson's epic "Get Back" Beatles
feature. Beatles weren't my generation (my mom was a massive fan in the
early day) but I have a fondness for parts of their mid to later work.
Hard not to appreciate them.
Seeing their creative process unfold in almost real-time was super
fascinating, watching them write would what would become the "Let It Be"
album released after their breakup.
The entire experience so far (it will be 8 hours total - I've only
watched EP1) sometimes seemed a bit aimless and meandering, but I couldn't
stop watching it. Straight-up stoned Lennon's smile, Yoko screaching,
the hangers-ons, Paul frantically trying to keep the music coming, George slowly simmering and disconnecting and Ringo... Ringo just watching it all unfold.
