Right. Not too uncommon for him to do that. Stu was still playing bass and I recall reading Paul would frequently have trouble with his Rosetti Lucky 7. Lovely photo, innit?

Thanks, Greg, much appreciated!

When I hear Paul's solo stuff, and most music in general, I hear the groove and melody first. McCartney has written transcendent lyrics in the past, but I don't expect that from him anymore....lately, I'm digging the fact he's still making music, touring, doing some TV, and seemingly having a blast doing so. In his twenties, Paul (and the rest of the Lads) gave my semi-musical brain so much to chew on...I'll remain indebted to them for the rest of my days.... :-)

I'll tell you though...it's support for him like yours and your undying appreciation for his music even to this day that keeps my faith in him.  Total respect my friend.

Home Tonight.  I don't hate it, but it's ...whatever.  Terrible lyrics.

In a Hurry.  I like this.  But for yrs now Ive just given him a handicap like in golf.  He's 77.  This song is great for a 77 yr old guy.

Cool song.  Cool lyrics.  However...If a new group came out with this song I wouldn't give it a second look.

I am the classic "stuck in the past", "he could do no wrong when I was young" type of person.  Neither proud nor ashamed of that.  Prob leaning towards the ashamed section of the spectrum though.

btw...Kenneth Womack's book on Abbey Road is really really really good.

Originally recorded during the "Egypt Station" sessions. Why weren't these on there?

I love how enthused Randy is about one chord by a band.
The Beatles can excite a great musician with just one chord from early in their career.

This song is, as I believe I mentioned years ago here, very special to me. When I got married in 1987, my Aunt Clarice came from Wisconsin to play for us. We had a list of about 20 songs for her to choose from, with me having made only one request: "Grow Old With Me". This was before there had been any covers of it, only about a year and a half after the song got released on "Milk & Honey". I'd read the John had always conceived it as a sort of wedding song, so it meant a lot to me to have it played there. My Aunt knew every other song on our list from memory.....hadn't heard of this one. She had to buy an entire John Lennon song book to get it....this she did. As I am in the groom's room (really just a closet behind one of the church's massive speakers), I am thinking about the step I was about to take, a BIG one! Right before I was to make my way out of the room to the altar, "Grow Old With Me" was played. It felt like I was being told by an old friend that this was the right move, that I'd never regret it. He was right.....

Of course, my eyes were leaking as I went out there.....
