@Headhurts Well….he has many, amazing, artistic accomplishments and “A” is for effort. No one hit wonder with ol’ Paul.
If you can still be tapping into your creative energy at 70 something, that counts for a lot. He is still a very vital source of creativity.
Probably us boomers, we grew up on the Beatles and they were and remain an icon in the evolution of rock-in-roll.
Hell, Paul has more energy than I do and I am barely 54, and..we did the same drugs too! lol
Rock on Paul!
Personally I am a diehard George Harrison fan, RIP dear George.
@Kardamom Yeah, it’s a fucked up link, but definitely an old game kids use to play.
A ball was used to pass around & whoever was left holding it when the song finished was deemed “Queenie’ with the “eye”
Well anyway… not too many diss-Pauls. I like a lot of his solo stuff and admire him for the good works he does. And at 71, he’s surely a lot busier and more creative than most people I know of any age.
OK, just listened to 30-second clips of all 15 songs from ‘NEW’ using CD Universe. I will admit that McCartney’s best singing and songwriting days are well behind him, but during the past 50 years ( !! ), nobody else comes remotely close to hitting as many home runs as this guy has….
@trailsillustrated OMG….Elton John is far worse than Paul. I could go the rest of my life without anymore EJ and, gawd..I so HATE Stevie Nicks!
Throw that candle in the wind into her fucking Landslide. lol
Now…Aerosmiths ” Dude looks like a lady” and ” Love in an elevator” CLASSIC rock…what’s to hate about those two iconic tunes?
I agree with the Stones and never listened to Bono.
Some of you McCartney fans may have seen this, but if not you will love it.
Something like two years ago, Paul McCartney was honored at The White House, given the Gershwin Award for Popular Music. Several performers covered his songs before a small audience, which included President and Mrs. Obama and their children.
