you lose all respectabilty for seeing twisted sister, quiet riot and loverboy in concert.

step away. just...step away.

I guess I should run away. I saw Men at Work in Atlanta in 83 or 84. Worst show of my life. That would be a fun new topic...."Worst Live Shows"

I guess I shouldn't poke fun. Who hasn't seen a crappy concert. I saw Eddie Money live. Eddie Money? I don't even like Eddie Money. Only show I ever walked out of before the encore even started.
I want to tell her that I love her a lot, but I got to get a belly full of wine.

I beg to differ :-h
"Wings IV introduced Jimmy McCulloch, a spunky lead guitarist with grit, able to spur Paul on unlike any previous soloist. His debut track, the magnificent single `Junior's Farm', stands as one of Wings' finest emotional and technical releases."

lets face it guys
it is paul and HIS music
personally i love everything Wings
i have a hard time deciphering Wings as a band as they had so many line up changes
the band paul has now has been together far longer then any wings line up
but there is something there with this seventies period
a certain vibe or sound that paul creates that his band mates seem to feed off
he has never really duplicated it
best thing about that decade was Paul and his Wings
