The real tribute we long to hear..

Postby Chris Speers » Mon Sep 16, 2002 9:12 pm

I know he's been discreet and doing tributes to Linda (My Love) and to John and to a lesser extent George. How about a big blown up, tear induced tribute to his best friend, the best loveable sheep dog a guy ever had. Martha. Can't you picture Paul playing Martha My Dear on the psychedlic piano while big pictures of the large sheep dog are shown on the back screens? I guarantee you with People's love for pets - it'll get bigger applause than Lennon's tribute. I mean who doesn't get misty-eyed when thinking about their pets?? Especially a sheep dog as good and as loyal as MArtha? DIdn't she nearly rip that British cop's head off when he busted Paul in '73 in Scotland?

MARTHA MY DEAR needs to be played in 2nd half of the tour!

He may have a problem, Chris. I think that is the song that he said he had problems playing on the piano originally. If thats the one (Source: Many years from Now), he might shy away from it. But I LOVE that song. Question: How many "Martha's" has he had? Is the dog on PIL a decendant?

And wasn't Jet one of Martha's pups too?

Too bad he's having difficulties playing Martha on the piano. But he has Wix, hasn't he? He's better at the keyboards than Paul is (I assume) so Paul can play bass or whatever. And then he can do Honey Pie and You Gave Me The Answer. We'd still be vaudevilling the next day!

I seem to remember that "Jet" was a black Labrador puppy.
Martha has descendents I believe.
Paul said James has one.
I'd like to hear Martha too.
But I'm praying for my special fave, Rocky Raccoon.

Well, why not encompass the whole lot and play "Wild Life"? [;)]

Wild Life! Oh, man that was a screamer! I don't think he can pull it off any more... Honestly, I don't think anyone can! [:)] It's another song that clearly demonstrates what an amazing voice he has always had!
