On November 20, 1976, George Harrison attempted to take SNL producer Lorne Michaels up on an offer to pay The Beatles $3,000 to perform. Harrison was the musical guest and even helped Michaels with the cold-opening skit about getting paid. The host that week was Paul Simon, and the two gave us two of SNL's all-time classic performances. "Here Comes the Sun" and "Homeward Bound," with Paul and George singing verses of the other’s compositions.
It was magical... watch!
