Before he scored Paris Hilton, Larry King put together an impressive lineup by getting Sir Paul, Ringo, Yoko and Olivia Harrison together to celebrate the one-year anniversary of Cirque du Soleil’s show Love.
And then he couldn’t remember Ringo’s name, calling him ‘George.’? But it’s okay, Sir Paul set Larry straight.? Can you say awkward? ? Here’s the transcipt.? Video evidence afterwards.? If you don’t want to sit through the entirely banal interview, just scroll over to about the six-minute mark.? I mean really Larry asking Paul and Ringo if they wake up and pinch themselves?? Or if George’s death was expected when he was obviously sick?? Geez, but what do can expect from a channel that bumps Michael Moore for Paris Hilton?? Not much.
KING: Where were you when ? when John passed?
MCCARTNEY: When John passed I was in Sussex, at my home in Sussex. That?s where I was.
KING: Did somebody call you?
MCCARTNEY: Yes, my manager at the time called me. And it was just the shock of all shocks, you know?
KING: George, where were you?
MCCARTNEY: No, this is Ringo here.
KING: Ringo, where were you?
STARR: I was in the Bahamas.
KING: I was getting to (INAUDIBLE) George.
STARR: I was?
MCCARTNEY: No, you weren?t, Larry. You said his name wrong.
STARR: Shut up, it?s my turn.
MCCARTNEY: I know, but he got your name wrong, Ringo, on national television.
STARR: I know. Give him a break.
MCCARTNEY: We can?t cut it. It?s live.
STARR: Anyway, I was in the Bahamas and the kids called and they said we?ve heard something, like John has been hurt.
Is it too much to find Pete Best?? Cause, not sure if Larry knows this, but he’s also the third living former member of The Beatles?? Probably too much salt in the wound for poor Petey.
