(Rock News Desk) John Lennon and Paul McCartney came within minutes of a live TV reunion appearance in the 1970s – but decided not to bother because they were enjoying a night off.

The ex-Beatles bassist was visiting his former bandmate in New York when they discussed the possibility of taking up Saturday Night Live producer Lorne Michaels' offer of $3000 to stage a Fab Four reunion on the show.

McCartney says: "John said, 'We should go down, just you and me. There's only two of us so we'll take half the money.' And for a second… But it would have been work and we were having a night off, so we elected not to go." more on this story
