Although Paul McCartney -- or the Beatles for that matter -- has never been swayed by being petitioned into doing anything when it comes to his career -- a new petition seeks to have McCartney release the unfinished third Beatles reunion track.
Between February 1994 and March 1995, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr -- along with producer Jeff Lynne -- spent four sessions attempting to flesh out John Lennon's 1978 bare-bones demo of "Now And Then" -- along with the eventually released reunion songs "Free As A Bird," and "Real Love." The trio eventually abandoned the track, due in large part to a persistent buzz found on the demo tape that couldn't be erased. Lennon's demo for "Now And Then" -- also known as "I Don't Want To Lose You" and "Miss You" -- has been available on the underground circuit for years.
