Carl Perkins featuring Paul…You should definitely read the story surrounding this song. It is in the video description.

From the Back to the Egg Sessions

From the film Everybody's Fine…even though it is a commissioned song, I always felt this was a truly personal song.

A nice little whistle tune, with chords based around two fingers, hence the name. Has a nice little story at the beginning.

One of Ringo's best, featuring Paul. I really love how their voices blend together. It really shows how well of a harmonizer Paul actually is. He doesn't get to do harmony that much with other voices anymore.

From Steve Martin's newest album, Rare Bird Alert…written by Steve.

Oooh…Kicked Around No More is one of my favorites, and so is Big Boys Bickering.

No worries, no worries…we all need someone to agree with us sometimes. We are Paul fans, and we must stick together!

Robber's Ball…don't ask. Seriously. It's fun, though, and I think it came out of a jam with Denny Laine. The things Paul comes up with off the top of his head are…interesting, to say the least. I'd love to know What Goes On in his noggin.

Waterspout. Along with Yvonne, this is one of the most popular unreleased Paul tunes. It really gets stuck in your head when you hear it, and it is another of Paul's storytelling songs. I like it a lot.

A semi-Collaboration, Paul singing with Neil Young, a tender version of Neil's Only Love Can Break Your Heart (it's too beautiful to pass up.):

Ooohhh…that really is excellent! I wish I could download that song. I know there is a cd of the Bridge School benefits out, but it doesn't include this.

Isn't it? I mean, having Paul sing harmony, and beautiful harmony, is great. Thanks Neil for doing this show. And I love Neil's original (Off 1970's After The Gold Rush – great album, highly recommend it). A triumph.

I've been looking to get into some new music. I'm not really a music buff. I never really cared for it until I met the Beatles. Them and Paul are really the only musicians I care much about. I know I need to rectify that. Any recommendations? Classic rock, punk, rap, pop…anything.

Have you seen Paul and Neil do A Day In The Life at Hyde Park?

It is multiple parts awesome and hilarious because Paul looks so drunk…though I'm not sure he was. He apparently was watching the show from the wings, so I don't know how much alcohol he could have had. I couldn't imagine being there!

No, I hadn't. And, if someone acted as stupidly as Paul and WASN'T drunk, I'd march him to the mental hospital. He was drunk, all right.

Found a really interesting Paul McCartney collaboration, he discovered a singer songwriter called Glenn Aitken and signed him to his MPL publishing company.  Paul played the Hoffner on "Ordinary People" – a track on Glenn's debut album Extraordinary Lives.  I downloaded it on iTunes.  Great track.

Ahh…he and Neil looked like they were having a blast! They are apparently great friends, mainly because Linda was friends with him before she met Paul. He spoke at Linda's funeral and inducted Paul into the R&R Hall of Fame. Anyway, I thought it was a great moment. The crowd seemed to have loved it!

I never knew that about Linda. I've always loved Neil – that's the rule if you're a Canadian. I really think you'd like his 1972 album Harvest, or 1970's After The Gold Rush. Why don't you take a listen?

Edit: But it makes sense. Linda would have photographed Buffalo Springfield at some point, and she sounds like quite the "accommodating" back then. Not that I even have a slight idea if anything happened. But it just warms my heart to see two rock legends, acting nice with each other.

Hey…thanks for the recommendations! I've been wanting some because anyone Paul respects must be great! He and Linda were great friends, and it is possible they were more, but I'm not sure. Both she and Paul sowed some wild oats before they settled down. Mostly Linda just loved Neil's music. I think the final concert she went to was his, and he was very sweet in allowing her special seating, or something. There is also a letter in some museum sent from Paul to Neil saying he and Linda had been listening to Live Rust over and over and that side 4 was "kick ass!" 

I like to see when musicians are friendly with each other, too. Other great friends of Paul's include Billy Joel, Pete Townshend, and Elvis Costello (though there was initially tension, they seem to have overcome that at some point, as Paul is now working with Elvis's wife Dianna Krall, and Elvis always has nice things to say about Paul). It has often been said, however, that Paul never really felt like he had REAL friends outside of The Beatles and Linda. It was always down to Linda to stay in touch with people because Paul felt no one would really be interested in hanging out with him, or some such. Sad, isn't it, that such a well-liked man around the world has few close, close friends (that we know about) because of his own insecurities? I think mostly his friends include family and people like his personal assistant for 40 years, John Hammell. He's everywhere Paul is and is thanked on virtually every piece of work Paul has done in recent years. He's the one driving the car on Paul's wedding day, and he's the one that told paparazzi to take pictures of that "fucking whore," instead of Paul, in reference to Heather after the divorce. Bros before hos, huh?

Anyway, that's enough "Paul Education" for the day. Thanks again for the recommendations!!

Kedame, just caught your "My Old Friend" post – a real tear-jerker.

I'd never seen many of those clips/pictures. Thanks for sharing.

Paulsbass, great little documentary on Billy Joel-McCarrtney.

Joel returned the favor at Citifield, but without the drama of the airplane, police escort, etc…

Excellent post, paulsbass…never seen it before. Into the sky…that is a real tearjerker. I got choked up the first time I heard the song and story.

Why was Yvonne left off Press To Play, its such a great song, far far superior to anything which remained on that album? A very catchy tune yet only available unofficially.

 

 

I have no idea how Paul came up with Mr H Atom, can only think something was being inhaled at the time.

I think he has said that he really did come up with Mr. H Atom because he heard that men and women are only separated by one hydrogen atom, and it fascinated him.
