Thanks to Matt Wilczynski

Last night was the screening of The Concert for Bangladesh and I recieved a report from Matt Wilczynski who also sent a report on The Concert for George screening a couple of years ago. At that screening he ran into Paul in the mens bathroom. (see <a href="http://www.macca-central.com/macca-news/morenews.cfm?ID=1414">MACCAnews article</a>)
===============================================
Hi, Mike. Tonight was deja Vu all over again. Same theater, a lot of the same people (Jeff Lynne, Dhani Harrison, Tom Petty, Billy Preston, Olivia Harrison). Unfortunately, I had class (I run the LA School of Rock http://www.hollywoodrockacademy.com) so could not make it...but my girlfriend could and told me the following:
1. Eric Idle (Monty Python) and actress Tea Leoni (Deep Impact) introduced the film.
2. Dhani Harrison, Billy Preston and others , including an ex Beatle (no, not Paul, he's on tour....) playing live outside the theater. They played "is'nt It A Pity" and "Here Comes the Sun".
3. The George Harrison UNICEf Fund was officially launched at the screening.
4. An AMAZING gift bag was made availabe that includes: - The Special Edition DVD - The remastered and repackaged CD - Very cool color postcards of the show - A collectable bag - Little chocolate pumpkins.

It's the little touches, you know.... So, once again, sounds like a great time was had by all. I'll see if she has any pics too post in the morning. I still check you website EVERY morning with my coffee. Keep it up - I love it, and you're doing a great job.

All the best, Matt Wilczynski

Ringo performs live at Bangladesh release party

by Chris Carter, Breakfast with the Beatles

October 21, 2005

There was great event held last night by Apple Records/RHINO/ Warners along w/ UNICEF at the Steve J. Ross Theater at Warners Studios in Burbank to celebrate the DVD/CD re-release of the Concert For Bangladesh.

Following a screening of a documentary about the Bangladesh concert there was a cocktail party outside of the theater while a string section played some George Harrisongs.

What made it so "special" was after the string section finished, the stage was taken by some of the original Bangladesh concert alumni fronted by George Harrison's son Danhi on guitar, Billy Preston on keys, Klaus Voorman on bass, and Jim Keltner on drums along with some original horn players.

The highlight was when RINGO jumped up on the drums to play a fine version of "Isn't It A Pity". WOW! All this in lovely downtown Burbank! Also in the crowd were Tom Petty, Jeff Lynn, Joey Molland (of Badfinger...who should have been on stage!!!), George's wife Olivia, and Eric Idle among others.
