New Yawk NY-- Sir Paul McCartney and Brian Wilson gave a joint press conference at Rocketfella Center to announce the reformation of 'The Beatles'.
The new group will be called 'The Silver Beatles', both to commemorate The Beatles original name and to acknowledge the advanced age of band members. 'The Silver Beatles' will also need two other band members according to Sir Paul.
"We need someone under the age of eighty please. The ability to walk and breathe on your own is also important." said the stoned ex-rock star. "We wanted David Bowie or Steve Tyler but they all have heart problems. Everyone else we know is either dead or dying."
Paul said the new band will keep light hours. "Everyone gets a chance to take a nap and go to doctors. We won't even play past 7PM." said the silly stoner.
"All our songs will be about death and dying." said Brian. He was not doing very well today on his medication. "Love is gone, only death is in the future. Death. Just death."
Sir Paul said he will rewrite most of the Beatles's songs and give them a darker spin. "Our audience is dying, literally. 'Yesterday' was never more poignant. I go to one or two funerals a week myself. What a drag it is getting old."
