In the days leading up to the premiere of Get Back on Disney+, I had the tremendous opportunity to spend more than three hours speaking with director Peter Jackson as part of Robert Rodriguez’s Something About the Beatles podcast. We go deep into the weeds — or is it the California grass? — on the film, on the group and the period.
Please enjoy this unexpected party presented, appropriately, in three parts, wherever you listen to podcasts. Links in the tweets below! (I’ll update this post with all three parts as they’re released).
It's with extreme joy I can share Pt. 1 of a conversation — a *three-hour* conversation– with Get Back director Peter Jackson. We talked about bootlegs. We talked about day-by-day minutiae. He's one of us.
It's the epic conclusion to our Peter Jackson interview trilogy on @SATBshow!
We get into the original '69 Let it Be cut, discuss coordination with this year's book and box set, talk John & George fisticuffs, get into audio AI and hopes for an extended cut. PLUS MORE!! 🎧🎧🎧 https://t.co/soacnzF89v
I’ve been sharing my insights on the Beatles’ Get Back sessions on this blog for the last seven years, and it’s been with great joy that recently I’ve been able to share my voice as well at some other fine locations online.
Deep thanks to Robert Rodriguez for engaging me in a terrific, lengthy discussion on the Something About the Beatles podcast on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the January 1969 sessions. Log onto your favorite podcast app (here it is on iTunes) or just click below. Perhaps do both!
Additionally, a huge thank you to the FabFourArchivist for having me on for a couple of cameos on his YouTube series about the road to the rooftop.
Greetings to all the new readers and followers who have found this site thanks to the above! We’re now more than 50 years removed from the Get Back sessions — and with this one, 100 posts on this blog — and we can’t stop talking about it. And why would we?
