Just saw this yesterday on Facebook. Has anyone seen this show live? I watched the promos for it but didn't like it. For me, he doesn't sound like McCartney and he's playing guitar right handed which makes no sense. Anyway, let me know your thoughts.

Neither heard of or seen him before.

He neither looks nor sounds like Paul; maybe if you merged Paul and Denny together you'd get more of a similarity between them. As a cover band tho 'Live And Let Die ' was' pretty good, 'Maybe I'm Amazed ' less so.

Never heard from them until now, and I'm not impressed. A glittery jacket and a mullet do not Paul McCartney make. If he wanted to be authentic, the least he could do is fix his accent. He still wouldn't sound anything like Paul, though. Nice try, but it's not for me.

Eh, they're okay. Vocals are all right-- vaguely Paulesque, though of course to us Beatlemaniacs no one could pronounce his vowels exactly like Paul. I think it'd be better if they just called themselves a cover band instead of trying to be a Macca tribute.

I feel like they're trying too hard, but not trying hard enough. 

It verges from the sublime to the ridiculote

Yeah it looks like a cover band but with someone who attempted to dress up as Paul. His singing is good but not Paul-enough to be realistic which isn't helped by my being very bad at suspending disbelief.
