a ham of a performer way back then!

That was a great, fun bit... and kudos to Cole for being such a great host and giving this kid a little room to show off.

Yeah, that kid was going places...

I never even heard of this - thanks!

As Lennon stated "He's so good, Ray Charles doesn't bother playing organ, he lets Billy play !"

All around a great performer.

“Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented." - Eli Weisel

"To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." - Theodore Roosevelt (1918)

"I don’t want to see religious bigotry in any form. It would disturb me if there was a wedding between the religious fundamentalists and the political right. The hard right has no interest in religion except to manipulate it." - Billy Graham 1981

"Politics and governing demand compromise. But these Christians believe they are acting in the name of God, so they can't and won't compromise" - Barry Goldwater

I suspect that Paul was not on board simply because when John was suggesting adding a member or substituting a member ... John was thinking Yoko originally.

Every song Billy plays on is better than what they could have done without him.

John wanted Yoko to be in the studio with him, he never suggested that Yoko become a member of the group. Barry Miles said John insisted Yoko join the group, but in reality he was talking about Yoko joining John in the studio.
