Macca and U2 in Sgt Pepper Uniforms at Live8

This is pretty creepy news. A London tabloid reports that Paul McCartney and U2 are to perform in the Sgt Pepper uniforms to open Live8:

If there are only 4 suits, who doesn't get one--Larry Mullen, Jr.?

I think John and George are rolling over in their graves--with Beethoven.

Poor Paul, has he finally gone soft-headed? Those cheesy dayglo LSD uniforms are supposed to remind us all of the summer of love and press our leaders for African debt relief?

Apparently he's even changing the lyrics to "Sergeant Pepper" to reference Geldolf and Bono.
See my suggested lyrics below.

___________________________________________________

It was 20 years ago today
Bobby Geldolf asked me out to play
he's a hip and philanthropic cat
but who still listens the Boomtown Rats?

Call me Sir Paul or Macca-daddy-G
'cause I'm richer than you'll ever be
Used to sing "When I'm 64"
Now I'm 64 can't sing no more . . .

And I sure hope I don't split my pants
We're Sergeant Peppers U2 Live8 Band . . . .

Bono gets to sing a line
but he really aint no friend of mine
'cause if there gonna be a show
Macca-daddy open and Macca-daddy close

We're debt-reliefin' egomaniacs
we're Sergeant Peppers U2 Live8 Band . . . .

BTW I wonder if Bono will fit in John's uniform?
