London (ANI): Sir Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr will come together on stage to teach meditation to youngsters. The surviving Beatles will be seen in a live Internet broadcast from New York on April 3 to promote the spiritual method amongst young people.
The legendary musicians had journeyed to India with their band mates in 1967 to learn transcendental meditation from their then guru Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. But according to Fab Four biographer Keith Badman, the pair was said to be less enthusiastic than their fellow rockers George Harrison and John Lennon.
“Ringo left early, basically because he hated the food. Paul followed," the Daily Express quoted Badman as saying. “Ironically, it was John and George who were most keen on meditation," he added.
