mtm, you're right. all of these old timers have proved time and time again that they can still make great music. and, again, you are right about that most concert goers only want to see the big hits. i think its because its these original hits that made these bands / artists popular and successful in the first place.

but again, as you said, you aren't talking about fans (obviously, short for fanatics). fans would love to see paul play wanderlust, followed by beware my love in concert. its the casual concert goer (is goer a word?) is happy singing along to hey jude again and again. the casual fan makes up the majority of people both buying records and sitting in the seats at concert venues. sorry to say, but its the casual fan that these artists have to keep happy.

i was shocked to actually witness the most recent show in chicago, to see the indifference in fans faces while he played flaming pie. i would have been pissed off, but really, how pissed off can you really be when you're at a paul mccartney concert?

I totally agree, but a lot of people don´t take the time to listen to new bands. I find it hard to find time to dig into new stuff myself. You stick to what you know!!

lol, if you stick to what you know you'll never learn anything.
Sticking to what you know is bad policy.

p.s: I think MOJO said 2006 would be the "year of the Who" and not to let anyone tell you any-different. High praise for Endless Wire from MOJO.

i don't know if sticking to what you know is really bad policy. if i were having a brain tumor removed, for instance...i think it would be a most enormous advantage to actually have a brain surgeon do the surgery, instead of maybe a lawn and garden guy do it. but thats just me.

and, while i love the who...i don't know if the remaining two guys, even if they are the two main remaining guys, qualify for calling themselves the who. but i'm really excited about the brand new townshend/daltry project.

well, i'm going to disagree with you here, old buddy.

i don't think a project involving jagger and richards mean its the stones.

if paul and john would have reunited during the late 70's...it would have been incredible, breathtaking, and legendary...but it wouldn't have been the beatles.

if graham nash wrote a song with neil young...no way its touted as CSN & Y

i'm not saying i'm not looking forward to hearing what the new stuff sounds like. and i love zac as drummer (its still him, right?)

just label it something else.
