Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr are still meditative about their trip to India.

The two remaining Beatles are sharing the stage on Saturday night when McCartney headlines Radio City Music Hall.

McCartney said at a press conference on Friday that the Maharishi had given the band a “great gift.” He said it came at a time “when we were looking for something to kind of stabilise us toward the end of the crazy 1960s.”

 

Saturday’s concert, called “Change Begins Within,” benefits the David Lynch Foundation. The organisation’s initiative is to teach a million at-risk youths meditation techniques. Besides Starr, McCartney will be joined by Sheryl Crow, Donovan, Eddie Vedder, Ben Harper, Moby, Paul Horn, Bettye LaVette and some surprise guests.

  1. Kudos to Mr. Lynch for organizing this great concert with Paul McCartney to raise funds so that our youth can have access to Transcendental Meditation. I have seen first hand the wonderful effect Transcendental Meditation has on students and young people. They become calmer, more focused, and their grades improve too! Also their thinking and decisions are more balanced which ain’t bad either, just ask their parents! I think it’s an all around win for our children; the future leaders of our world.
