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 :(

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.

'Thank You Darling' is too saccharine and self-indulgent but the prominent guitar line (first heard 18 seconds in) is gorgeous and pulls me in.

I've always liked the exchange between Linda and Paul on Uncle Albert

P:  I had another look and I had a cup of tea and butter pie
L:  Butter pie?
P:  The butter wouldn't melt so I put it in the pie, alright.

@mrneil2, I've moved your above post here as its better suited with all of Paul's solo career, plus you may find the other posts of interest.

And i'm with you on that exchange, for years i wasnt sure what was being said as i couldnt believe they were saying "butter pie" (this was the days before the net and a quick google search). 

And welcome to the forum. There is an introduce yourself thread if you want to (you dont have to) and i hope you have a look around not only the forum but also the rest of the site, there is a ton of information out there. Oh and post away.apple01
