        Cool! And right at the beginning was the Hudson Brothers - Mark Hudson was Ringo’s producer and in his band The Roundheads. Bill Hudson is dad to Kate Hudson (with Goldie Hawn) Brett Hudson was the 3rd brother. They had a TV show on in 1974 that I used to watch all the time. I’m friends on FB with Mark (who I have met on several Beatles cruises) and Brett.

          They recorded for Elton John’s record label, Rocket

          Rendezvous (The Hudson Bros./Bruce Johnston)

          Produced by Bernie Taupin

            That's funny, they didn't have the regular people, the fans, roped off. Everyone was swarming around.

              The interviewer David Frost asks Paul if he'll ever have anything like "Tommy," put out a rock movie, and Paul answers as if intrigued by the idea...and indeed, comes out years later with his "Broad Street" movie, which was nothing like "Tommy." But it was better than just a "vanity project" as some called it.

              Elton John is treated as if he's the biggest pop/rock star in the world, which he must have been, at the time. He's regarded in this as bigger than Macca. (But Macca wasn't very far behind, was he.)
