This man has been such a huge influence.

When I heard the first recordings of the Beatles, I heard things theat were recorded without ears.
And the first LP? A taste of money (doo do doo do).

I ab-so-lu-te-ly knew for sure, it was thanks but no, thanks!

The Stones in the beginning were kept on track by Elmo Lewis.
Aka Brian Jones.

I rather listened to the Animals and The Yardbirds. And Jo Ann Kelly.

And I still do. Closer to the blues.
But Macca?

The walking talking ‘stroopwafeltje’ of the musical industry?
But no; I mustn’t give you the idea that i’m only bashing. This taps into real felt teenage emotions.
To all people going to his gig: I hope he delivers what you hope for. After a few years of experience I trust he does.

But apart form being very British orientated, this is not my cup of tea.
Kind regards, Gus

Sir Paul McCartney rolls back the years in Cavern comeback (but no phones please)
By Ian Youngs Arts & entertainment reporter

2 hours ago

More than six decades have passed since Sir Paul McCartney first performed at the Cavern Club, but the Beatles legend returned to roll back the years at a "secret" gig there on Thursday.

Around 250 people crammed into a sweaty Cavern to hear the 28-song set.

The set list ranged from classics he performed when the Beatles started out at the Liverpool venue in the early 1960s to songs from his new solo album.

"Coming back here is pretty amazing for me," the 76-year-old told the crowd.

He skirted over the fact that the original Cavern was filled with rubble in 1973 and the venue for Thursday's show was a more modern live room attached to a replica Cavern that was built nearby.

"Imagine this for me - all these years ago when we played the Cavern we didn't know if we'd have any future," he said. "But we did OK."

The crowd included 175 lucky fans who had to race to collect the free tickets from the Echo Arena box office when the show was announced on Thursday morning.

Tom Gilchrist, 28, from Liverpool, started waiting outside the Cavern first thing after hearing rumours of the gig. But they jumped in a taxi when they heard they had to get to the arena.

They joined others running to the box office, and saw one woman faint in the process. "It was like Beatlemania all over again," he said.

Friend Chris Clements described the concert as "probably the best thing that's ever happened to me in my life".

He said: "We were so close he could have been in my lounge at home."

His girlfriend Dana Fischetti, 22, happened to be visiting from Connecticut, USA. "I'm so lucky," she said. "The chances of this happening are so long. It doesn't feel real that this is really happening. I love The Beatles."
Phones 'putting me off'

Sir Paul greeted the crowd by adapting the lyrics from the song Michelle: "Liverpool! Cavern! These are words that go together well."

After an introductory jam, he launched into "the song that got me in The Beatles" - Eddie Cochrane's Twenty Flight Rock, which Sir Paul played as his audition for John Lennon in 1957.

However he stopped the song halfway through and showed a rare bad mood when he berated the crowd for filming and taking pictures on their phones.

"I think you've all been told not to take photos," he said. "And you're taking them, and you're taking them, and I don't want to get put off, and you're putting me off."

One fan was ejected for filming during the opening jam, even before Sir Paul had made his plea.

Smartphones weren't an issue when The Beatles played at the original Cavern almost 300 times between 1961-63.

Since then, Sir Paul has only played at the current Cavern once, in 1999.

On Thursday, he said returning to the venue had given him "flashbacks to the early days".

He paid tribute to late bandmates John Lennon and George Harrison, and his set included In Spite of All the Danger, written and recorded when the group were still The Quarrymen.

There were also Beatles and Wings hits like Magical Mystery Tour and Band on the Run, as well as several tracks from his forthcoming solo album Egypt Station.

If this gig and those songs are anything to go by, he's keen to show he's still full of vim, vigour and virility.

Come On To Me, with its chorus "If you come on to me, well I'll come on to you", sounds like an attempt to suggest he'd still be casually courting, if he wasn't happily married.
'He's still got it'

He told the crowd the lyrics of another new one, titled Fuh You, are "open to interpretation" - when in fact they convey even more buccaneering machismo.

"He's still got it," said one concertgoer, James Jardine, from Liverpool.

He added: "To get so close to someone who's so famous and iconic is unbelievable. You feel you could reach out and touch him."

Hundreds more weren't so lucky and had to make do with listening to a busker playing The Beatles' hits as they waited outside for a glimpse of the rock legend.

The Cavern Club concert comes weeks after he played a surprise show for about 50 fans at the city's Philharmonic pub for James Corden's TV show.

On Monday, he also performed at Abbey Road Studios - where The Beatles famously recorded - watched by stars including Kylie Minogue, Johnny Depp and Stormzy.

Macca is one of the most versatile songwriters on the planet. Compare "Temporary secretary" with  "Single Pigeon" to mention just two relatively unknown tracks that have that oddness + appeal that keeps music interesting. Off course there are also some tunes, famously called grandma music by Lennon, but those are a minority in McCartney´s corpus.

I saw his show twice in the Netherlands - very much worth it... but what I paid was less than what is mentioned by @man of simple pleasures

I really enjoyed that first video @Dutchbeat , thanks - he makes it sound so easy, writing all these now historically famous songs. Not sure I believe him that he 'loved' John...but maybe it was kind of brotherly love, y'know, a love hate thing!  :)

He looks good for his age though, long past 'When I'm 64' now! I'll watch the next video tonight!

bought the album today - after a first listen on Spotify. Sounding very good. Specially Dominoes and Happy with you.  Honest lyrics:
"I sat around all day
I used to get stoned
I liked to get wasted
But these days I don‘t
'Cause I'm happy with you"

That was actually a pretty eye opening video.

I never realized just how precise Mr. Starkey was in all of those songs.  I have read lots of discussions over the years about Ringo's prowess (or lack thereof) as a drummer but this video has me thinking he was pretty unique. When they play those Beatles covers at the end it is only the specific drumming that has them actually sounding like real Beatles songs.

Hey Gus!
@LePlongeur ......any opinions on the inimitable Ringo Starr?

Post by: Dutchbeat on January 27, 2019, 19:58:49
hi @Leonard Scaper , i think you may like to watch this too then, with Ringo explaining himself how (and why) he drums like he does...i thought this was a fun video about that

@Dutchbeat    I've seen this before DB, before watching I thought it would be about the band Bad Finger (which I truly loved when I was a youngster)

Funny how being vague and illusive  and good marketing can get some stuff  played on the radio and sold. Speaking of which, do you think we have the "real' Paul or did the original die back in the day and this one is an impostor?

i am totally sure Paul is very alive, and lately again more than ever  ::thumb:: ::thumb:: ::thumb::
