Look at the topic, Ivejust a-hard-days-night-george-10  I'm referring to the Gary Clark Jr./Joe Walsh jam on the Grammys anniversary show!  I know I can wander off topic, but not this time!

Oh, right. *facepalm* I knew that.

And yes, I loved that duel. I'd say Gary Clark Jr. might be the best guitarist to have emerged in the last 10 years. Not saying that much, but man, is he incredible. Nice to see the future of music in at least some good hands once people like Paul and Ringo are gone. People like him and Dave Grohl are our Hope For The Future. 'cuz it sure as heck ain't this guy. Or this girl

Glad to see someone else like it :)   Agreed that "this guy" and "this girl" sure as hell won't be getting any lifetime achievement Grammys (watch and one of them will get one in 40 years or so since I said that...if it ever reaches that point of course the Grammys will officially be meaningless!).  Not to hate on those types of performers but I'm sure we'll all agreee that there is a huge difference in complex and delightful musical scores and arrangements, and authors performing their own lyrically amazing songs rather than some song-mill churning out "hits", to be performed by kids or strippers.  And now my off topic rant is over...

Half of what I say is meaningless... I feel good in a special way, I'm in love and it's a sunny day BeatlesBible.com earns royalties if you use these links when shopping: Amazon | iTunes

On the week anniversary of me seeing this, I decided to post my opinions on it:

Maroon 5 were very weak, lacked energy and weren't a good opener. They should have been in the middle where'd they quickly be forgotten about rather than starting the entire show.

Katy Perry's 'Yesterday' was really annoying as well, she was the only act I tried hard not to mute when they came on.

Alicia Keys overdid 'Let It Be', oh stop it with all the high-notes, stop showing off!

I didn't like 'Here Comes The Sun' I wished they showed more of the LOVE performers, it would have been far more interesting.

Stevie Wonder's 'We Can Work It Out' slightly irritated me when I first saw it but I'm happy to say I enjoyed it last Friday.

Ringo's set is really boring, would he not throw in a couple of new songs? Hearing 'Boys', 'Matchbox' or 'Honey Don't' makes me want to scream. They're not even great songs! 

'Hey Jude' was cool as always, the LOVE artists were great with the umbrellas and rose petals (?). As far as I can remember Paul didn't do the 'Just the boys, now the girls', did he? I don't like that he does that in the live performances, it's stale now. 

 

Phew I think that's all, well all I remember now anyways. I give it a 3/5 a-hard-days-night-george-4

Although I did like the little documentaries and the amount of people in the audience who didn't get The Rutles' references was shocking a-hard-days-night-ringo-6

I think you're the only person here who wanted more of the Love performers.  The documentaries were about perfect for an American audience.  Not a whole lot of people over here who know much about their early days.  But we tend not to deal with too much detail well...

Off-topic but: Great to see Peter Dinklage getting the recognition he deserves, his performance in GOT season 4 was outstanding (even though he was brilliant in the previous seasons also) :)

Mid season 4 spoiler

His speech about having been trialed all his life for being a dwarf was amazing, really captured the feeling I got from the books.

Watching Tyrion crumble, he's terrific!

Just started watching this ready to skip where necessary.

First annoyance. Don't show the beginning of 'All My Loving' on Ed Sullivan drop in Paul and Ringo talking over it and then go to Maroon 5. Play me the full damn song!!blue-meanie

Edit: Up to Hey Bulldog. Stevie Wonder was good but apart from that nothing really has stood out. Eric Idle was decent and the mini biographies are cool. I'm more surprised that Hey Bulldog on the YS record has far more energy and rocks far harder than Dave Krohl's live rendition. Oh the Eurythmics are on.

 

Edit: The audience are non-existant whilst Ringo's doing Yellow Submarine.

Paul's about to come on!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Was Sean Penn ok?

 

Edit: Its over. Maybe it was just me but there seemed to an energy missing, maybe from the audience. For me it was good but not great. Not much else to say. I'm glad to have seen it and its always great seeing Paul and Ringo together so there is that.

Man, I thought both of the Grohl songs (Hey Bulldog and WMGGW) were absolutely fantastic. Saved the otherwise mediocre show for me (that and Paul/Ringo)

"Katy Perry's 'Yesterday' was really annoying as well, she was the only act I tried hard not to mute when they came on."

"I HATED Katy Perry's version of Yesterday. I now understand what everyone meant with ''breathy''. It was super awful. Usually she kind of makes up for her lack of singing talent with her amazing looks and sense of humour, but this time she couldn't. That fringe was horrible, not to mention that curtain-thing she was wearing. Could easily have been taken from my grandma's house. Not a good thing."

I'm with you guys here. It was terrible. I've always thought that Katy Perry is a talentless menace to musical society. I know there are several who like their records, and I respect that. I just think that she perverted the song "Yesterday". I feel very shameful of this one in particular because it was the first song I really performed in public. Of course, my version wasn't good either....

By hook or by crook, I'll be last in this book.
