You started out with the same humble origins as everyone else, but then right around 2004, something changed: you hit the big time. And don’t get me wrong, everyone is really happy for you. We’re just…we’re just not really sure if we can trust you anymore, you know? Power corrupts, after all. You’re still popular and probably will be for years to come, but that, quirky, offbeat cred you were capitalizing on for so many years? Yeah, it’s time to let go of that.

Ringo: It sure was a crazy weekend!
George Martin: Yes, yes it was. Anyway, we’re really excited to get you guys touring again, but as Paul and Ringo…well, as Paul can tell you, anyway, the music business has changed a lot since the 60s.
