The 2012 Olympics are being held in London and some connected with the event are hoping to have ex-Beatles Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr appear there in some form, possibly even as a reunion of "The Beatles":

McCartney and Starr had played a lot together in albums, but the magic is not there. It is just a good musician doing session work for another good one.

There was something in their way of working which could never be reproduced, even if a full reunion had taken place (if it was possible). Like, for example, The Moody Blues had 7 majestic albums from 67 to 72. Then, they went into a hiatus and returned in 78. They were still good, but the magic was not there anymore.
Most of the bands which survived till today are like that. Stones, for example, are great, but they cant reproduce the 64 to 74 magic unless by playing the old songs (and sometimes not even so)

I don't think there can ever be a "real" full on reunion, sadly. That ship has sailed. I'm sure the most dedicated fans of the group would love to see these two working together more often, even so. They can't go back to what the group was in the past, but perhaps they can build something new.
