As if the idea of seeing Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr performing together wasn’t enough! CBS has just announced that The Night That Changed America: A GRAMMY Salute To The Beatles will feature an interview with McCartney and Starr conducted by the current resident of the Ed Sullivan Theater, David Letterman.
Letterman interviewed the two at the Ed Sullivan Theater yesterday (February 4), without a studio audience.
