1987 12 18 - George and Ringo on Aspel and Co

George and Ringo on ITVs Aspel and Co.
This is one of my personal favourites as G and R are on great form
How about George and Ringo and the possible

One of my favourite Macca interviews, The year McCartney took
the Beatles songs back on the road on the back of the
successful Flowers in the Dirt album.

The press are a little hostile, but Macca in confident mood
responds well.You can't quiet here some of the questions but his 
answers generally explain what  has been asked. Enjoy.
