London: Beatles star McCartney has revealed that it was band mate John Lennon who suggested they should accept Lorne Michaels’ offer to perform on his show in the mid-1970s.
The ‘Saturday Night Live’ producer had earlier offered to pay the ‘Fab Four’ 1,875 pounds to perform three Beatles numbers on his weekly comedy show as part of a SNL skit, reports the Daily Express.
“He (Lennon) said, ``We should go down, just you and me... We’ll say, ``There’s only two of us, we’ll make half the money...`` And for a second..," McCartney told Access Hollywood.
However, the plan was never implemented, as McCartney said, "it would have been work and we were having a night off and so we elected to not go... It was a nice idea. We nearly did it…"
