You don't like Paul's screamy singing? Not even in Hey Jude? Don't get me wrong, I love Martha, but I'd happily compromise her existence to hear him ripping out those amazing high notes.

I admit I don't like the screaming either. So I tend to gravitate towards non-screamy covers (eg Maybe I'm Amazed).

For George, I recently saw a photo where he had all his hair pulled up into a vertical ponytail on top — and he pulled it off (pun intended) nicely.  I can't find it anymore.

You mean this one with Patti?

No, the one I saw was literally standing upright off the top of his head, like a carrot top.

I suppose we could take the off-topic of Paul's Hey Jude screaming to the room I created a while back on Paul's screaming, but I'm too lazy right now.  I would just second Ben Ramon; though on the other hand I'd say that while I do like the Hey Jude screaming, I would rank it at the bottom of his other screaming efforts, all of which are superlative (I already listed them in that other post) -- with "Mumbo" easily #1. 

The Hey Jude screaming kind of reminds me almost of the somewhat cheesy yelling (not quite screaming) of Greg Rolie of Santana in certain songs (end of "Evil Ways", "Mother's Daughter", and "Hope You're Feeling Better" -- though Paul's is of course better.

Anyway, what else could be done with that Hey Jude ending that would work as well?

I think during the filming of Help is when they all had their best style.

Um, no - sorry... I think it doesn't come across as "genuine" shouting, but rather as another instance of Paulie favouring style over content (which he does occasionally). But like I said, his obvious fondness for dogs makes up for that in my book, so it's not I like Paul any less because of "Golden Slumbers" or "Oh! Darling". :-)  Also, I think his actually unhinged rock'n'roll shouting (as on "Long Tall Sally") is great. Plus, doesn't he do the scream at the start of "Revolution" as well? Or was that just for the cameras in the promotional film?

Even for someone as seemingly stringently scrupulous about what constitutes good screaming vs. inauthentic screaming, I'd think you would have rather picked these few seconds of Paul in "I've Got A Feeling" (excuse the weird sideways video, that's how I found it on YouTube) --

1) http://swf.tubechop.com/tubech.....cid=786338

or surely his solo effort "Mumbo". 

The whole song is good, but here's just the first minute.  Anyone who says Paul's screaming here isn't good or authentic should have his or her head examined:

Great choice.

Just a screencap, but I love, love, love Paul's jacket here and wish I could find a good color pic of him wearing it:

I agree totally, that's such a cool jacket but I've never seen him wear it in any other picture. Paul and John both looked great in that interview (although John was in quite a sour mood).

Sylvester Stallone, he of the Rocky and Rambo film series. Is he meant to look something like Paul?

I've since come across other videos/screencaps which show that Paul kind of wore that blue/green jacket to death for a period. He wore it when they went to hear the Maharishi in London, and it shows up when he's saluting at the end of "Your Mother Should Know" in MMT. But I can't find any good "official" pics, which is a shame.

I don't think he wore it when they went to the Maharishi's lecture in London- in the pictures of that event that I've seen, he's got on the garish sweatervest he wore a lot during the filming of MMT.

And of course I can't find it now, but I came across a black and white pic of Paul and the others in a lecture hall, and he's wearing the jacket. Maybe it was misidentified. If I come across it, I'll post it.

Meantime, a couple of other instances with the jacket *g*

As I tried to find that pic again, I came across the motherlode of resources on that jacket:

http://www.beatlesuits.com/Bea.....Jacket.htm

According to the site:

The jacket makes it’s debut on Paul’s back on August 24, 1967 in London, during their meeting with the Maharishi.

Maybe Paul took off the jacket when they had the private meeting.

Who knew that jacket had a fandom? a-hard-days-night-john-6

There are some photographs of Stallone, a certain angle or look of the eyes, which to me resemble McCartney. He certainly has similar eyes.  Once, when Rocky I or II was big in the movie theaters, my friend and I (both of us Beatle and McCartney fans) walked by a gigantic movie poster for the movie featuring Stallone, and my friend turned to me and said: "Monster McCartney".  I instantly saw what he meant.

P.S.:

I think if you put the following people into a blender or a futuristic genetic transformer, you could create a McCartney (though he'd have to wear a turtleneck to cover up the seams):

Sly Stallone

Angela Lansbury

Davy Jones

Bob Costas

Robert Wagner

Thanks Dark Horse; I've had this notion for many years now.  It was nice to find a place to express it, and nice that someone was on the right wavelength to appreciate it!
