I would have preferred a more suitable song — Rocky Raccoon , or Sally G, or Only One More Kiss.

  

Same with her Queen cover of WWRY & Champions.  Yeah, they’re well-known, iconic songs and her voice sounds great, but there were plenty of more suitable ones for a more unique/tailored set.

  

Another example was when Ray Charles not long before he passed away got together with James Taylor and they chose “Sweet Potato Pie” when I strongly felt they should have chosen “Home By Another Way” — both on the same album.

Now today I find, you have changed your mind

Paul recorded Let It Be with Dolly Parton for her rock album that is due out later this year.

Story

  

Just came out, and I love it! heart-warming as always… the rockiness pairs well with Parton’s husky voice.

  

The song charted. Yay for Ringo and Paul! They are both on the track.

Paul is on Jimmy Buffett’s latest album – to be release posthumously.

The song Paul has a part on is My Gummie Just Kicked In.

https://kbgo.iheart.com/featur…..ew-song/  It’s a line from Nancy!!!!

 We went to sit down and Nancy was my dinner partner and Paul was down next to [my wife] Jane at the other end of the table with like 20 people on it. And when Nancy went to sit down she kind of stumbled a little bit and I said, ‘Whoa, are you okay? You okay?’ And she said, ‘No, no, I’m okay. My gummie just kicked in.’ There you go. And then I said, ‘Can I have that line?’

And…

Paul plays bass on one song on the Rolling Stones album, Hackney Diamonds, coming out next month.

Wood said McCartney, who played bass on one track, was “blown away” to record with the band,…

Can’t believe there is no topic thread for this MASTERPIECE CLASSIC ROCK n’ ROLL number. Sir Paul McCartney drives a KILLER bass solo with fuzz as Mick Jagger sings with “f” words and anger. 

I personally rank this as the 2nd or 3rd best song on HACKNEY DIAMONDS (2023). It is incredible that the two Rock and Roll legends returned with new material 60 after the 60s. Don’t give a damn what the naysayers think, this is going to be classic rock like Abbey Road and White Album

Bite My Head Off (feat. Paul McCartney) – YouTube

When I gave it to Paul, he said, “This is an incredibly thoughtful gift, but why? I already have my Beatles Hofner — why another one?” I was like, “Just plug it in and give that extra switch a try.” Suddenly his eyes widened, and he just started ripping on it. I told him to bring it to the recording session, and he couldn’t stop laughing.

I shared the song with Paul the day before, and when we entered the studio with the band, he brought out the bass. During the breakdown section of the song, he activated the Super Fuzz switch, and it was complete carnage! Everyone was like, “What the fuck was that?” It was hilarious and so cool. I think we recorded just three takes of that song, but almost immediately, Keith and Ronnie were on their feet, and Mick dragged the mic into the middle of the room and the roof left the building.

I think Paul really enjoyed that he was just a guy in a band again with friends that he’s known for 60 years. It had been a long time since he was with equals, just plugging in his bass and doing a session. I couldn’t wipe the grin off my face for a very long time.
