Never. I would go to a concert just to see Pete Townshend take a dump on my face.

Yoko Dropped the McCartney credit from GPAC

Personally, I have no issue with it. Who better to keep John's songs alive than a fellow Beatle?

And (although I hate to bring them into this) do you think the Jonas Brothers could do a better job?

It's all in the name of keeping the memory and the music alive.

Let's all be happy that we still have a Beatle gracing the stage!

Because the wind is high, it blows my mind.

I don't think so, but Paul thinks they're alright... nope, no, sorry. a-hard-days-night-paul-1 (Are they even that big of a deal any more?)

They are only relevant to the kids/grandkids of the original Beatles screamers of 45 years ago

I have no problem with Paul singing anyone's songs. For that matter, I have no problem with Ringo singing any songs written by John.

Actually, it would be kind of funny hearing Paul sing How do You Sleep? in concert.


Ha!  That would be great!  Somewhere I read that Paul's response to "How Do You Sleep?" was "On a big pile of money," but that's probably just folklore....

Brilliant!

I don't know if it's true either but it does sound like something he would say. It fits right in with the Beatles' cheeky sense of humor.

I wish I could have that same luxury.... :D

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

I take no particular offense to Paul singing "Give Peace a Chance", just think it's quite curious and questionable aesthetically - "GPIC" isn't really a very good song at all! (As John would be the first to admit, no doubt.) Why not do his own "Pipes of Peace" instead?

Another dead thread but here I go… I agree with you, @Von Bontee: very true. And Pipes of Peace is a masterpiece.

I don't give a rat's arse about it unless he's claiming he wrote the song.

I don't like when he sings Lennon's songs like 'Day In The Life', 'Strawberry Fields Forever' and 'Please Please Me

I miss Lennon's vocals in the songs. I really don't like that McCartney tried to change the songs he felt were more his from 'Lennon & McCartney' to McCartney & Lennon. That really pissed me off!!

I meant the Lennon parts of the song especially the Ahhhh's before the final verse.

He does it as a tribute, he's not singing them because he wants all the credit for writing songs that John mostly wrote. 

And I will never understand why people seem to care so much about Paul wanting to switch Lennon-McCartney to McCartney- Lennon for songs that were written by Paul. He wasn't taking John's name off of it, and it makes him happy why should anybody else care? It's not hurting you, and if John was alive, it wouldn't be hurting him, either.

Oooooh a-hard-days-night-ringo-6 @Inner Light said the "A" word.  Will Mr. Big and PaulsBass rejoin the forum to resume the vitriol which necessarily results from the use of such inflammatory language?

I say in speeches that a plausible mission of artists is to make people appreciate being alive at least a little bit. I am then asked if I know of any artists who pulled that off. I reply, 'The Beatles did'. Kurt Vonnegut, Timequake, 1997
