I was thinking today, he's the same age as Mick Jagger, and Mick looks like he's been dead and reanimated (and I'm a big Stones fan, too, so I don't say this to be mean). Whatever Paul and Ringo are doing, it's working, they look fantastic.

As my dad says, Mick and Keith look like they were sucked dry by a giant spider :lol:

 

Funny thing is, Keith has been clean since the early 80s…he's just aged REALLY badly!

I've already run into a former coworker and 3 other people who've come here just to see Paul. And my hotel is playing one of Paul's live albums in the lobby. Can't believe the night is almost here!

Have a great time tonight! I live in Marin County north of the Golden Gate Bridge but have a gig tonight. Be careful out there. Traffic is going to be a mess what with the concerts, Giants Game, Raider's Game, Steely Dan and America's Cup.

Give us a full report after the show. HAVE FUN!!!!

I took copious notes and will work up a longer post maybe tonight. For now, suffice it to say that everything you've heard is true – Paul is one of the most amazing performers I've ever seen, if not the most. The day was long but the night was over far too quickly. I got up insanely early and it paid off – for my very first, possibly only Paul McCartney concert, I got front row! Off to the extreme side but, still front row!

I was wondering what special treat San Francisco would get, and Paul didn't disappoint. He performed "Yesterday" with the Kronos Quartet. I got hear that song with actual strings.

More later. It still feels like a dream. I may have cried at least twice.

Thanks, Emily! Hope to have a chance to do my write-up tomorrow, as I got called in to work just as I got home.

Just want to post that someone told me that Outside Lands will stream an hour of Paul's set at 7pm PST tonight.

Oh, and Stevie Wonder was on my flight home. :-D A perfect ending to a perfect weekend.

So parlance, what do you think of that discussion from another topic, about whether Paul's voice is quite what it used to be?  What was your impression of his singing ability from the concert, and does it compare favorably with his past?

Well, I don't think it's fair to compare favorably to the past. He's older. Voices deteriorate. But as I said over there, he's still in fine voice, and sounding better than the performances from last year. There were certain notes he hit that I was incredibly impressed by – not only the fact he hit them, but that the tone and quality sounded very much like a younger Paul.

I was BLOWN AWAY when he did Long Tall Sally in Seattle.  He can still pull that one off!  heart

I agree, I found him in fine voice a month ago…he sounds older but he doesn't sound old, if that makes sense?

Looking forward to reading your recap of the show, and I'm glad you enjoyed it!! :D

Thanks parlance, LHL and DrBeatle for your input.  Good to hear about Paul, parlance.

LHL, there seems to be an interesting (but annoying) phenomenon about these Paul concerts: people who attend in person rave about his voice -- thus you and that Seattle reviewer someone linked a few days ago (Timothy Egan) both say that he sang "Long Tall Sally" perfectly.  However, when I saw the video, it seemed like it wasn't as good as I've seen him do in the past (I mean it was phenomenal, but still not as good as before).  That makes me think that something tangible is lost in the translation to video, which is too bad.

You're welcome. I agree that something's getting lost in the translation (though much of that has to do with bad audio equipment, and it's no wonder most artists forbid video recording). Friday night's performances of "Magical Mystery Tour" and the verses in "Live and Let Die" don't sound nearly as brilliant on video as they did in person. On the other hand, some songs like "Yesterday" hold up.

You know, there is warbling, that can't be avoided at his age with all the smoking he's done. But overall, I can't imagine anyone who's seen him in person walking away disappointed.

Especially when he's in his 70s and still putting on shows close to or exceeding 3 hours. That's just superhuman.

Ive never seen a bad Paul review either from fans or critics – which is some testimony to how good the shows are.

I agree. apple01

Taking longer to get this write-up done than I'd hoped, so in the meantime, here are my photos of James and Paul.

With all due respect, truisms like "at 71 years old, it's amazing what he's doing" and "the performances were amazing" etc. don't actually directly speak to the simple logic of the question, Is Paul singing as good as he used to sing?  None of those other extraneous points are necessarily relevant to this question's simple answer.
