Watch Paul McCartney Recount George Harrison’s Beatles Audition


It's been over a month since Yahoo! premiered the trailer for Martin Scorsese's upcoming documentary George Harrison: Living in the Material World, and with less than a week to go before the film's HBO premiere, we have another early look -- a clip in which Paul McCartney explains how Harrison wound up in the Beatles in the first place. Even if you know the Fab Four's story backwards and forwards, it's awesome to watch Sir Paul recount how this guy who was "a bit young" made his way into arguably the band that changed everything.

Remember: The two-part doc will debut on HBO October 5th and 6th before getting DVD and Blu-ray releases on October 10th. It features new interviews with McCartney and Ringo Starr, as well as Eric Clapton, George Martin, Yoko Ono, Tom Petty, and Phil Spector. And it looks really, really good.
