Rare pics: Ringo and Cilla Black

A Daily Express article today teasing a new British TV special about Cilla Black makes much ado about Ringo once "proposing" to the famed singer - a friend of the Beatles who was also managed by Brian Epstein.

Though the story about the proposal - it was just a joke between the two friends - is silly, the article features some fun pics of Ringo rehearsing a performance for Cilla's TV series in 1968.

Documentary on Paul McCartney near completion

A documentary about Paul McCartney, in the works for 12 years, is nearly complete, the director tells the Daily Mail.

Filmmaker Charlie Lightening, director of a recent documentary on ex-Oasis singer Liam Gallagher, says there's not a set release date for the film, but he intends to film Paul's performance at the Glastonbury Festival this summer to include in the work.
The film...includes interviews with the man himself and will look to cover Paul's decade in the Beatles, his second band Wings and his subsequent solo career. 
'He's helped me with what I do and I adore him. He's trusted me and to have someone like that to see up close and work with – that's inspiring, it makes you better at what you are, it makes you want to be better.'
Lightening produced a video for Paul's song "Back in Brazil" in 2018.
