George Martin's son "open" to working with surviving Beatles
Sir Paul and Ringo together again at Cirque du Soleil
BY GARY STEWART

The son of the late Beatles producer Sir George Martin has said he is “open” to working on new music with the band’s surviving members.

Giles Martin joined Sir Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr in Las Vegas to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Cirque Du Soleil show based on the Fab Four’s music.

John Lennon’s widow Yoko Ono and their son Sean Lennon were also guests at the Mirage hotel, while George Harrison’s widow Olivia was expected to attend.

Martin, the musical director of The Beatles Love by Cirque Du Soleil, said he would consider working with Sir Paul and Starr if they decided to reunite but “it wouldn’t be The Beatles”.

He told the Press Association: “I think the reason you ask that is because ‘would it be like The Beatles?’ And no, it wouldn’t be. The Beatles were four of them.

“I love them both and they’re hugely kind to me.”

He said: “What can I say, it wouldn’t be The Beatles,” before adding: “I mean I’m open to anything.”

Sir George, often described as “The Fifth Beatle”, died in March, aged 90.

His son produced a number of tracks on Sir Paul’s 2013 album New.

Film-maker Ron Howard also attended the Cirque Du Soleil show after directing a new documentary, The Beatles: Eight Days A Week - The Touring Years, which is due for release in September.

Speaking on the red carpet, he said he had learnt that the Beatles voiced concerns about segregation in America at the height of their fame.

Howard told the Press Association: “I didn’t know they had taken an important stand on segregation in the South. I knew that later they began to speak out against the war in Vietnam and become involved in that and other social issues.

“I didn’t know that early in their career they were actually taking very hard, very courageous positions with something as incendiary in the United States as segregation.

"It was amazing to learn about that.”

Ringo, McCartney, Yoko Ono at 10th anniversary of “Love” at The Mirage

Giles Martin, musical director of the Beatles’ “Love” show at The Mirage, was addressing the show’s company in the theater Thursday when the audience began clapping.

“I’m like, ‘Why are they clapping for me?’ And of course, they weren’t,” Martin said.

He felt a tap on his shoulder and “there was Paul,” as in Paul McCartney, who was in town for the 10th anniversary celebration of “Love” at The Mirage.

He gave Martin, who produced McCartney’s 2013 album, “New,” a hug and departed.

They go back a long and winding way.

“I’ve known him all my life,” said Martin, “and I wanted to write music for a living. He gave me a lift in his car when I was a kid — I was 11 or 12 — and he said, ‘I see you’re running music.’ And I said, ‘Yeah.’ He said, ‘That’s great.’ My dad (Beatles producer George Martin) never said, ‘That’s great.’’’

McCartney offered some advice.

“He said, ‘You know what? Stick at it because it’s not easy.’ He said, ‘I’m Paul McCartney, and I don’t find it easy.’

“And I always remembered that and when I went to play the guitar he helped me. He advised my dad on what guitar we should get. He’s always always been incredibly encouraging. This show as well. As I said in my talk, I always had crazy ideas and my father was nervous that my ideas were too crazy and he (McCartney) came up and said, ‘You’ve got to push it harder. We’re The Beatles. We’re not into being safe.”
