"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!"

Paul, what is your favorite of those sweater vest? 

Do own any clothing from the 60s? 

Where do you keep it?

I'd ask him how the hell he didn't know he was jamming with the remains of Nirvana when they did "Cut Me Some Slack"? That's the best song he's done since "Junior's Farm".

Nice one - coincidentally I only read about the Nirvana thing last night  - very interesting.  And welcome to the boards.

Finally! A reference to Macca with the rest of Nirvana. Watch it, it is killer music. Old McFartney holding his own with rockers who came up from punk. People ripped on it, no way can that old fart rock with the younger generation, but Paul nailed it! Check it out.

Now, here is this - I dig the Beatles and always will, but why should I buy a McCartney album today? I'm not buying the Eddie Vedder ukulele CD. Does Paul still have it? Even Ringo is making records, and I'd rather listen to an air raid siren than anything Starkey could put out without George co-writing it.

 

 

I think it depends on your tastes of Paul's writing while he was with the Beatles. Yes he still has it, granted he's not sounding spry and young anymore... he sounds his age... but his songwriting and ear for melody are as sharp as ever. If you don't own a McCartney solo album yet, I'm not sure New might be the place to start. Something like Ram (Paul at his peak) or Run Devil Run (Paul older but tearing through some early rock and roll with ease) might be better intro albums if you're looking for solo Paul stuff.

A non-funny one
What is your favorite artist(s) from today (modern music)? 
I know he always gets asked about his favorite music from when he was younger, but doesn't get asked too often about today's music. I know recently has he has seen Jay-Z and Kanye West in concert. 

He liked the Grey Album bootleg that Danger Mouse did (White Album mixed with Jay-Z's Black Album), so he's a little familiar with Jay-Z's work. I'd actually like to hear the answer to that question, because what does a man who's inspired just about everything going on in popular music listen to today? I can imagine him liking Mumford and Sons and the Civil Wars and groups like that, but who's to say?

From the Twitter Q & A

Cheers @JacksonBeatles The last albums I bought were by @kanyewest@The_National@thecivilwars and @s_c_ (Jay Z)

After listening to his interviews lately, I don't think he bought these albums for his listening pleasure. Re: that line in Alligator "everyone's busy doing better than me." He listens to them so he can do them one better. Competitive as ever. I don't think I want to counsel him out of it, but I should keep tabs on this little streak of his to make sure he doesn't harm his health over it. Don't worry, I will stroke his ego every session.

I guess thats the part of him being a workaholic.
