Last night, Paul McCartney and Bruce Springsteen played “I Saw Her Standing There” and “Twist and Shout” in Hyde Park, before having their mics and instruments killed by the joyless police to comply with a 10:30pm curfew.
“Ashamed to be British right now. Springsteen and McCartney playing ‘Twist & Shout’ in Hyde Park and council pulled the plug cos of curfew,” tweeted actor and comedian Stephen Merchant.
McCartney is in talks for a brief role, and could make a deal that would allow the series to feature his songs.

From a note written by PAUL McCARTNEY accompanying two CD’s sent to Glee co-creator Ryan Murphy; the show will feature songs by the former Beatle next season.
I’m still convinced this will be the Super Bowl episode.
Just spitballing here, but: Remember when Glee creator Ryan Murphy said he was courting a “big artist” to appear on the post-Super Bowl edition of Glee next February? Well, it feels like he may have inadvertently let the cat out of the bag. Or, in this case, the Beatle out of the bag.
Murphy told E! that Sir Paul McCartney recently sent him a mixtape:
“The other day a package arrived at my office and I opened it up and it said ‘Mixtape From Paul McCartney.’ It was very sweet…It was a CD, I apologize. It was these amazing songs that I grew up with. And I said, ‘Is this a joke?’ It literally said ‘Greeting (sic), from Paul.’ This is a strange, strange world we live in, and it’s awesome.”
