‘Angry’ is the ninth track on Paul McCartney’s sixth solo album Press To Play. See more…

The song featured The Who’s Pete Townshend on guitar, and Phil Collins on drums.

I’d kept in touch with Pete after ‘Rockestra’ and Live Aid. Pete’s actually only on ‘Angry’. There’s a chord riff I’d written a long time ago for something else, and every time I played it I felt like Pete Townshend! There was plenty of those windmill arms when I played it, and I always imagined him doing it. It actually only took two hours to get that track down on tape, which is incredibly quick these days – in the old days we’d have done an album by then!

I liked this when I first heard it, but felt Paul was curiously holding back on his voice when it called for more of that inspired type of screaming he can be good at — unbridled yet well-crafted.  His screaming on the Red Rose Speedway ‘s Hold Me Tight & Get On The Right Thing, or on Too Many People & Back Seat Of My Car (at the end), and many others were far superior to what he does on Angry.

Now today I find, you have changed your mind
