OMG…re:  Here Today.  I had never heard the song before seeing Paul live in November/12.  I have never cried at a concert before in my life…but this song literally spoke to my heart & the tears were streaming down my face.  So beautiful, honest and touching.  I love it.  It will mean even more to me this time, if I get to hear it again heart

And the "it's a drag" thing…very few know how to deal with reporters period, never mind when they are grieving.  Grieving is difficult enough…doing it in front of the world makes it a million times more difficult. I agree with LHL, if you really know Paul, you can see the pain in his face during that interview.  It hurts me to watch it :(

I get angry about how they treated him when it happened. A) Leave him alone, he's just lost somebody who was like a brother to him B) If you really have to get your story out, treat him with respect and care and C) In the case that he doesn't know what to say, or if he says something you don't feel appropriate (not that it should matter to you how he reacts), keep it to yourself. As if things weren't bad enough already, he's then got the media slaughtering him.

In "Band on the Run", the guitar part (I believe it it's a twelve stringed guitar) directly before 'Well the rain exploded with a mighty crash…'

My favourite song is 'Stairway to Heaven' by Motley Crue on their 1876 album 'Yellow Submarine'.

My sense was that it's simply an electric guitar, bass, and orchestral strings (or synthesizer mimicking strings) all doing a certain lick in unison -- basically an upward arpeggio in C.

I think s/he means the chords after that break – C and Fmaj7.
