Why was Paul invited? He hasn't been involved with any films.

I was going to go and see 12 Years A Slave, but I couldn't get anyone to go with me - ha! I should learn to go alone because I really wish I'd gone now.

Edit: I've just been told they're still showing it, so maybe I'll go.

 

Oh you should go! It's very good, but some of it is really extreme. I cried at bits and had to look away. It's awful to think that things like this really happened.

Good that it won some Oscars, really deserved it.

Thanks, I think I'll go at the weekend. It just feels a bit weird going on your own, you know? I'll have to drag someone in with me :)

Sir Alex Ferguson was there as well and he isn't in any films either. Go, mingle with the stars, and if famous enough get a mention in the next day news.

Wow, what an opportunity. I would love to do that. That's quite a lot for me to pay, though :( It will probably be another time.

Ringo news:

* From the Beatles-Collectors list:

Blues guitarist Kenny Wayne Shepherd is releasing an album called "Going Home" in May 2014; Ringo drums on one cut, "Cut You Loose." Two years ago, Shepherd played on the "Ringo 2012" album.

* From Something Else (more at the link):

Ringo Starr is at work on his first studio project since the aptly named Ringo 2012, with Steve Lukather again at his side. The Toto guitarist, a current member of the All Starr Band, tells us he wrote a song for the as-yet-unnamed album.

 

 

This has been mentioned elsewhere. From The Examiner:

A rare 1966 interview reel-to-reel tape of the Beatles discussing everything from John Lennon's comments on Jesus, the Vietnam war and the possibility of doing a musical will be auctioned this month, Beatles Examiner has learned.

 

 

From Classic Hits and Oldies:

Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen, Elton John and Stevie Wonder are among the many stars who appear in a new PBS special that puts a spotlight on the legendary 1960s British band The Dave Clark Five.  The two-hour show, The Dave Clark Five and Beyond — Glad All Over, will premiere next month as an episode of the PBS series Great Performances.

[*snip*]

The Dave Clark Five and Beyond — Glad All Over is scheduled to premiere on PBS on April 8 at 8 p.m. ET and also will air April 11 at 10 p.m. ET; check local listings for exact dates and air times.  The special also will be available from PBS Home Video on DVD and Blu-ray.

Funny they give Paul the title 'the songwriter'. I'd have put him down as a 'conqueror' and a 'innovator', too.

Also, I think calling the Dave Clark Five ''legendary'' is pushing it a bit. There's some big names appearing on the show, though.

I was thinking the same.

I think it's appropriate. I'm not a fan, and I'm probably too young to appreciate their legacy. But they were inducted in the R&R Hall of Fame, so they must have had some influence.

^^ True. That you have 4 very respected musicians doing a tribute to them also tells me I'm the one who's missing something.

Paul news:

* In case you missed it, Ahhh Girl reported elsewhere that Paul called in to adult-alternative radio station KCSN in Los Angeles to thank them for their support of "NEW," and the call turned into an hour-long interview in which he mentioned a video he shot for "Early Days" and an animated project he's working on. The audio is now up.

 

* Also, Paul has a new Twitter account in Spanish. Get ready for announcements.

Paul made #21 in the Billboard Rich List, reports Examiner, with $13,769,479.16. Taylor Swift was #1 with a quiet eye-blowing $39,699,575.60

I presume its for the year 2013 but if it was $13m for the tour and the rest from sales of New then this does not include royalties from his back catalogue as surely he made more than a $1m thru the Beatles and his solo work in a year. Anyone know? Oh, and who is Kenny Chesney (#2)? Only singer i know with Chesney in the name is Chesney Hawkes (that two hit wonder) - he also starred in a film called Buddy's Song which was rather good, or was that the book i'm thinking of?ahdn_paul_01

More culinary adventures for Paul in LA:

Sir Paul McCartney had a special dish made for him at a restaurant in Hollywood.

The vegetarian 'Please Please Me' singer and his wife, Nancy Shevell, ate with his former The Beatles bandmate Ringo Starr and his spouse, Barbara Bach, at upmarket eatery Il Piccolino, but when he couldn't decide what he wanted from the menu, the owner took him to speak to the chef and they came up with an appetizing dish.

A source said: "The owner, a friend, escorted the ex-Beatle into the kitchen where Paul - who loves to cook - watched intently as the chef prepared veggies chosen by the star."

The star was then thrilled when he even got a special extra treat with his dinner - the recipe written out just for him.

The source added to National Enquirer magazine: "Paul went back to his table and was thrilled when his repast arrived, complete with the chef's handwritten recipe."

Paul has previously spoken of how much he enjoys the "creative" vegetarian food options available in restaurants.

He said: "Even 20 years ago, it could sometimes be difficult to find vegetarian options in good restaurants. Now it's great to see more and more choice with some brilliant creative dishes in restaurants, cafés and supermarkets. There is definitely now an overall greater acceptance of being vegetarian."

It's alright for some. When i'm in a restaurant and can't decide what i want i get evil stares from the waiter and prompts to get a move on.

As much as I love Paul, I don't really see why he should get such special treatment. In my experience, most restaurants usually have just a handful of veggie options, so it's hardly as though he was spoilt for choice. (also ''the Please Please Me singer''? - it makes him sound like that's the only hit he's had).

Kenny Chesney is an awesome country music singer. He grew up in East Tennessee, wetsroosa's neck of the woods.
