Live or Hologram?

Liverpool - In Memphis each year the remaining members of Elvis's band, including back-up singers, get together and sing with an Elvis Hologram and video display.

"So if they can do it with one person, why couldn't Ring and I do it with two?" said McCartney in a BBC interview, "Sure it wouldn't be ex-actly the same, but the technology just gets better and think of the funds we could raise for charities. We could even work in the Circ du Soleil somehow, then it woudn't just be me and Richard."

Ringo, known by friends by his real name Richard Starkey, said, "This is the first I've heard of it, but that's typical Paul for you, thinkin' out loud, but I love the concept. We've always had this magical aura, so it wouldn't be far fetched for people to buy into it. LOVE in Vegas proves that."

Wilson Closen, an expert in Holograms at the University of Southern California at Berkely said, "The trick is making the interactions with the "live" Beatles on stage look natural, it would take some doing, but I think it could be done, even down to cheeky comments in between songs."

Prince Charles, when told about the possibility, yelled screaming from the room, "Mummy! Mummy! Mummy! The Beatles is doing a reunion Mummy!" Later Charles retracted his statement, saying just this, "We would be extremely gratified to see such a show and even help out financially to make it happen."
