Can't think of anything. The post-breakup Beatles always seemed kind of aloof and removed from much of the then-contemporary music scene.

Paul did mention Jimmy Page in Wings' "Rock Show" though! The lyric goes "What's that man moving across the stage/It looks a lot like the one used by Jimmy Page", and I've always assumed Paul was referring to Page's double-neck Gibson, and I believe Page usually used that guitar to play "Stairway" onstage. So there's that.

Indian music can't be listened to the same way you hear rock and roll. You cannot do 'Yea Yea' and 'Go Man Go' - Ravi Shankar

Can Someone move this Thread to All Together Now to Allow for a more general discussion of the only great Led Zepplin song (IMO)

As if it matters how a man falls down.'

I can't think of any comments either, and I figure that most interviewers would be asking about a possible reunion rather than what they thought x. I'll keep an eye out.

Well, I'll move it then. I figured it was just Beatle-ish enough to squeak by.
