Sir Paul McCartney, late of Wings, will celebrate the release of his latest album with a live concert streamed over Apple's iTunes this Thursday at 7pm, Pacific Time. Unfortunately for our UK readership, that'll be 3am for British fans of the 69-year-old song stylist – and we can only guess that such an hour is a wee bit late …
way past his sell by date.
Frog song and Mull of Kintyre..trash
If it was 7pm on a Sunday and I had nothing else to do, I still wouldn't watch it.
The thought of watching grandad beatle gurning and dad-dancing his way through a series of ancient uninspiring crufty old songs is enough to make me weep.
Yes, he's a leg-end, been there and done it, but my God, he's so unhip it's a wonder his bum doesn't fall off. Mr. Naff.
He always was.
Lennon and Harrison = cool.
McCartney = uncool.
The 4th beatle = unmentionable.
As a friend likes to say
The Beatles - the most overrated band since U2.
Actually, I can't entirely agree. U2 were relevant for 10-12 years. The Beatles, by 1966, were following trends, not setting them, so they had about half the shelf-life.
Now more famous for Thomas the Tank Engine
The Beatles "White" (double) LP is on the Apple ((orps) label which, the label that is, when created was, helpully [we are told] described by Richard Starky (aka Ringo Star) as a "pun".
To quote Turkish...
"Did you understand a single word of what he just said?"
I would have had a gander but not if it's only on iTunes.
Heard a taster of some of the songs on the TV ad for the album.... truly awful
For those who disdain this concert and/or Sir Paul: As with rap music and me, "It's not for you so don't fuss."
Bottom - of the class
John Lennon's name is John Ono Lennon. Changed officially by Deed Poll during a(n unnecessary) ceremony on top of the Apple Corps building after he met some Japanese bint.
Kisses on the bottom...
"... I'll be glad I got 'em."
It's a line from "I'm Gonna Sit Right Down And Write Myself A Letter". Ppft.
Written by the great Fats Waller, who was truly great in his day. Few people could slide between jazz, blues, pop, and dance music like Fats.
he needs the money
to pay the one legged tart he got trapped by.
Then again, every year they dig up another oldie to milk the loyal fanbase, how many dead singers release greatest hits albums every five years? plenty
That they dug up some floor cuttings of amy winehouse and sold them as "new unheard" material just so they could milk the last cash from her.
sad when they do it to dead ones, even sadder that live ones still need to be wanted
A beatle playing via tunes...
Glad all those lawyers got paid over the whole apple vs. Apple Corps trademark battle, and it's just as well things got sorted or apple wouldn't be in the music business or something...
As if Fats Waller didn't suffer enough. Two songs on that album.
