Regrettable to think about but Paul's probably lost a lot more folks who meant as much or more to him than famous former professional acquaintances, however close they may have been. Being 71 years old means you've probably attended way too many funerals in your life. :(

Yes, I sometimes think about that with regards to my maternal grandmother. Before she passed at the age of 97, she had buried her parents, her husband, all of her siblings, all of her own children, and even a couple of grandchildren, not to mention friends and acquaintances. No matter how well-loved you are (she was very well-loved) that has to be a lonely existence. I can't imagine the strength it took to live through so much.

My response to Funny Paper & LHL certainly seems to have re-enlivened the conversation!

As to MJ, unknown, don't worry. Joke or not, there's at least one other person here who may have said, "What about Michael?"

When I first read that I thought unknown was referring to their creative time together.

On an up note, The Examiner reports that Paul dedicated Happy Birthday on Sunday not only to Ringo, but to his dad, "Jimmy Mac."

(Avoid the link if you don't like concert spoilers.)

I hate Say say say, haven't heard the other stuff he did with MJ.

Yeah I thought about that too. My grandma is now 84 and she has lost her parents, all of her siblings, her husband, all of her husband's siblings except for one (we were a very close family), nearly all of her friends and acquaintances. She only has about 3 friends left, of which one is seriously ill, one is seriously ill and dying soon and the other one is way older than her, so that might not take that long anymore either. Besides, one of her sons divorced and moved to the other side of the country, no one knows where, and another one of her sons moved to the other side of the country as well, with his wife and children, so in a way she lost them as well. She hasn't seen the divorced one in years and the other son visits twice a year, without children and wife.

It must be so hard and horrible not to have anyone anymore to talk to. Of course she has us, but you know, that's different, she doesn't have anyone to talk to about the good old times or whatever and she can't just go away to visit a friend or family. I really can't imagine how that must be, wow.

Cant stand any of the Macca/Jacko collaborations. Dreadful cheesy crap badly produced with abysmal lyrics.

 

I try and not think about death in the slightest. I know its a part of life but I don't want to go there. I have lost extended family and that was bad, just horrible - to lose someone incredibly close to you, a partner, child, friend, parent, whatever, must be truly horrific, God knows how terrible it must be to lose more eg lose your whole family. And then you have the circumstances of how it happens. I think, having no experience in it, its more just being there for them as no words can come close but what do I know.

If you had the time, you could sit down with her one day a month to record her memories.  Have a recording device, and a notebook to jot things down, and just let her reminisce, and ask questions whenever you feel necessary.  She might have very interesting memories, historical as well as personal.

I second the jotting down/recording memories suggestion. I did that with my grandmother. She was also very happy when I asked her to help me track her branch of the family tree.

Speaking of Paul and his dad, I found a nice picture of them on tumblr the other day:

^ I love the video that picture is from; Paul and the rest of Wings returning to a Liverpool pub that he presumably frequented as a younger man and mingling/singing with all the old locals as if nothing had changed.

That's right!  I love this video as well.  Isn't it from the 'James Paul McCartney' special from TV years ago?

.. and at 1:12, that thing he does with his smoke...  I love that.  I have tried to imitate it but dammit I can't do it.  ahdn_paul_01 That sassy bastard with his sassy smoking talents.

Has anyone ever heard a song written about this day?

“Send John out first; he’s the one they want.”
