Some great stories from a fan who attended the recent London events. Her other pages are fun as well.

Check out my fan video for Paul's song "Appreciate" at Vimeo or YouTube.

The more I listen to this album the more I love it.

I am really into "Early Days"...  another favourite.  Like I said in another thread, "Appreciate" is really growing on me too.  

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

Review from the low brow New York Daily News

Review from the high brow New Yorker magazine

I don't agree with either...

That 'New Yorker' one looks OK?

The title alone, The Generic Genius of Paul McCartney, is a backhanded compliment.

No idea if its been mentioned before but noticed that one of the lines in Queenie Eye is

O-U-T spells out that's out

of which the first half is what Ringo sings in The Beatles' Christmas Time (Is Here Again) (released on the b-side of Free As A Bird). 

Not sure if it's a deliberate reference but it's certainly a fun co-incidence.

I saw an interview where he talks about "Queenie Eye" being about the game he played as a kid that had the chant that is the chorus to the track, when he repeated the chant he said the "O-U-T spells out" part- as in "you're out" now.

Maybe that's where they got that from when they put it in "Christmas Time (is here again)", but in that context I always thought it meant school was O-U-T.

Yes, I thought the title was in poor taste but the review itself didn't seem too bad.

Queenie Eye
I was nervous, but I did it
now I'm going back for more

Turned Out
Looking back it didn't hurt me.
It did something for my soul.

These lyrics pair well with "Early Days" like a fine wine and an aged cheese...or beer and pretzels if that's your thing.

"Get Me Out Of Here" (oh boy) brings to mind Buddy Holly's "Oh Boy" (to which McCartney holds the rights)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v.....6lyYIurcCk

and of course the similar-themed "We Gotta Get Out Of This Place"
