i'd have loved, would still in fact love, to see paul play with slash.
while i absolutely love paul's current band, i have always wondered why he hasn't, in the past, chosen more accomplished musicians to play with. i was once at a local beatlefest, and ram drummer Denny Seiwell was a guest. there was the obligatory questions and answers period, where he was asked what it was like to record loup (first indian on the moon), he said it was the most fun he ever had recording anything. he went on to wonder how anyone had even known about that one, not even knowing (or, more likely, forgetting) that it had even been released. he then said something i'll never forget, he wondered, aloud...why paul was using musicians like him (and Henry McCullough)... when he could have been playing with the likes of eric clapton and phil collins. and that got me thinking, paul always played with relative unknowns...unlike john and george, who played with peers.
great musicians playing greatly can make you forget you are listening to a not-great song. i never once thought of eric clapton as a great songwriter, yet i have always loved his music. i think being a virtuoso can go a long way.
I want to tell her that I love her a lot, but I got to get a belly full of wine.
