Ringo Starr has never been fan of The Beatles' original ‘Let It Be’ documentary directed by Michael Lindsey-Hogg, and he doesn’t hold back on his feelings.
Ringo said, "The original documentary was so directed at one moment in in the band, and, you know, you got four guys in the room, there's a lot of laughter, there's some shouting, you know, there's a bit of agitation. And that's all Michael Lindsey Hogg, I felt, dialed in on. And I've always said, you know we had a lot of fun as well. And Peter Jackson has found a lot of fun because we did find 56 unused hours of the video."
Lindsey-Hogg told Rolling Stone he doesn't care. He said, "That’s his opinion. And we all have them. I mean, the polite version is everybody’s got elbows and everybody’s got opinions. I like Ringo. And I don’t think he’s seen the movie for 50 years...”
Michael added, "And I think, if you haven’t seen the movie in a long time, and you may not have the best memory in the world, all that kind of gets mixed up in your brain about what it was like. Because when I saw it last, I’m thinking, 'What is he talking about?' In fact, there’s great joy and connection and collaboration, and good times and jokes and affection in Let It Be.”
Get Back will air on Disney+ on November 25th, 26th and 27th.
