Beatles would have reformed if all the members had survived: Macca

London: Sir Paul McCartney says that he’s sure that the Beatles would have reformed in recent years if all their members had survived.

The band split in 1970 and went on to work on a variety of different solo projects.

Ten years later, the musicians were struck with tragedy when John Lennon was shot dead in New York City in 1980.

Another band-mate George Harrison passed away in 2001 following a battle with lung cancer, leaving just Sir Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr.

"It could have happened. We were asked to do reunion gigs shortly after we broke up. There wasn`t any point. It was like, `We`ve just split,` the Daily Express quoted McCartney as saying.

“I also had Wings so I was a bit busy doing other things. It wasn`t really a good idea then, but I think if this much time had elapsed, I could easily see it happening. Somebody would have said, `Oh go on. Just for a laugh.`

"It could have been a charity thing. Or it could have been because we just met up and said, `Let`s do it.` You never know. But it`s not to be so sadly it`s all just conjecture," he added.
