According to Snodgrass, which airs on Sky Arts 1 on 25 April, Lennon would have ended up on the dole, shirking rent and work and living on memories of past glories.

The washed-up, 50-year-old Lennon is played by Ian Hart. He has played the young singer twice before – in Backbeat and The Hours and Times. This new script, from a short story by Ian R MacLeod, gives the actor, who at 48 is eight years older than Lennon when he died, another chance.

For his own half-hour gig, the younger McCartney left the band at home to played solo acoustic, and included six songs from his upcoming solo album debut, Me, which is set for release May 21st. Coachella is only the fourth show in his current nine-week tour across the U.S. At 35, he's a relative newcomer to the family business, first publicly performing his own material in 2009.

After his set, McCartney retreated to his small air-conditioned dressing room, still flushed from the heat in his black shirt and vest, and spoke with Rolling Stone about his Coachella experience (to be repeated next weekend), his new music, the lasting influence of his mother, the photographer Linda McCartney, and life with dad.

The pair were joined by friends, as well as their respective wives Nancy Shevell and Barbara Bach, for the meal at the celebrity favourite haunt.

Ringo and Paul, 70, have had a love-hate relationship since their Beatles days, with their last performance together coming in 2009.

In an interview back in 2011, Ringo said of his relationship with Paul: 'We are as close as we want to be. 

'We’re the only two remaining Beatles, although he likes to think he’s the only one.'

But despite the fact that their friendship appears to be more love than hate at the moment, it looks unlikely that the pair will enjoy a musical reunion any time soon, as both Paul and Ringo currently have separate commitments.

A campaign started by Tony Bennett and his son Danny to get people to call their congressmen to encourage them to vote in favor of new legislation.

And guess who's serving as head cheerleader?

"Enough is enough. Please add your voice -- and thank you for adding your voice to end gun violence."

Ironically, his whip theirs five-to-one in terms of lyrical beauty, melodic classiness, harmonic might and thematic vision. Whatever the devil all that means. Plus, he was probably the nicest.

This was a pal who popped over to the US for a look during one of the heights of Beatlemania, only to come back dismayed, according to my former employer in the muffin restaurant.

Apparently he didn't find any "free love" or "free sex", did our good Georgie. However, let us not be too explicit about these things in journalistic records, just in case we go down in legal ones.

Anyhow, so he liked a bird?
