Went to a tribute concert tonight. 

Were they any good?

 

Yes, they were. :) They are called 1964: The Tribute and they have been doing this for 30+ years. 

I also got a kick out of the old people dancing. During "Twist And Shout" there was this guy raising his cane up in the air while twisting. My husband and I were one of the few young people there; however, it was great to hearing their stories about actually seeing The Beatles. This one lady still has her ticket subs from the concerts.

Lol, I saw a Beatles tribute band a couple years ago, and it was old people galore there, too.

This afternoon, I was driving down Melrose and I suddenly spotted this wall-sized painting of Paul's NEW album. This wall is across the street from a high school and routinely gets used to plug albums, but never would I have imagined Paul's album showing up there.

As I stopped to take the photo, a biker dude parked his motorcycle in front of me. And he looked at me shooting, and then the wall, and said, "Paul McCartney, huh? Haven't heard that name in a while." Then he asked me if the album was new, if it was good and if it was like his old stuff. I told him some songs sounded like old stuff, but a lot of it is very modern. And then he said, "I'll have to check that out, because I like him." :-D

Check out my fan video for Paul's song "Appreciate" at Vimeo or YouTube.

Have I Know What You Did Last Summer playing thru in the background and a cover of Hey Bulldog came on. No idea who the artist is but a nice thing to hear.

The wonderfully named Toad the Wet Sprocket. I think it's a great version:

I was walking the dog and I walked across a restaurant which has speakers outside. As I passed by Hey Jude came on. I just stood there and watched the windows of all the shops near to it while quietly singing along.

Found out I won a shopping spree at a record store! Trying to figure out what to get. I'd love to spend it all on a used deluxe Ram box set I've had my eye on, but I feel like I should be more "practical" and get smaller things like BBC Vol. 2 and Magical Mystery Tour on DVD. What would you do?
