Some nice words about Paul

Postby mhnso » Mon Jun 18, 2012 2:04 am

These lines are taken from a very nice article about Paul in the Guardian. Article found here http://www.guardian.co.uk/music/2012/ju ... sfeed=true
"The musicologist and composer Howard Goodall is working on a series for BBC2 that examines the history of music since ancient times – McCartney will be included. "He had an intuitive melodic gift: in terms of tunes, he's one of the greatest songwriters who ever lived." This, Goodall says, set him apart from John Lennon; by way of comparison, he puts McCartney alongside Schubert, Mozart, Verdi and Puccini. "In Puccini's case, you're talking about maybe 20 great tunes. In Schubert's case, maybe 100. But Paul McCartney is up there in the 100+ category."

Not bad eh Schubert, Mozart, Verdi, McCartney

Interesting.

Yes, I think the # of amazing melodies from Paul is pretty impressive. And My Valentine shows he's still got it.
