Paul and Ringo to attend unveiling of Imagine Peace Tower.

Man oh man.  It looks like we may have to retitle our moniker for the year 2007.  It is not The Year of the Beatle, as we have been saying all year.  I now dub it The Year of the Beatle reunion.  Throughout the last year we have seen Paul and Ringo together more then we have in nearly thelast decade.

We saw the entire Beatle clan together for the larry King interview, and plaque unveiling in Las Vegas.  Then there were a fortunate few who were able to see Paul perform in an intimate record shop in Los Angeles where Ringo was seen in the audience.  Now, the Paul and Ringo are supporting Yoko (and John) with an appearance at the Peace Tower unveiling in Iceland.  How poetic is it that these guys still come together to support one another and their causes?  It’s wonderful.  I think John would be happy to see their mates supporting those causes that are impoartant to him and “mother.”

Imagine this, though.  Could you imagine if Paul, George, and Ringo had joined John and Yoko at the bed-ins for peace?  I can picture them performing in the hotel room bed with them.  Imagnie what might have been their final live performance as a group, instead of it being on the roof.  

Here’s what we’ve read.

Former Beatles Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr will arrive in Iceland October 5 and are scheduled to attend the Unveiling of Yoko Ono’s Imagine Peace Tower on Videy Island off Reykjavík October 9, on her late husband’s John Lennon’s birthday.

According to mbl.is, the Beatles will stay at Hótel Borg with a team of bodyguards and assistants.

Both McCartney and Starr have visited Iceland before, McCartney in 2000 with his former wife Heather Mills, and Starr in 1984 when he played with local band Studmenn.

The Imagine Peace Tower is a powerful beacon of light representing people’s wishes for peace, set to shine every year between October 9, Lennon’s birthday, and December 8, the anniversary of his death. Lennon would have turned 67 next October 9.
