hmm. I must admit I don´t see why everyone dislikes Hamish...[:I]
Well Helters, I give the guy his due. His Average White Band tune, Pick Up The Pieces from '74, is one of my prized 45s. Occasionally I'm a DJ at wedding receptions, and that one is a crowd pleaser.
Paul must have been a big Average White Band fan. I think the Hamish comments refer to his stage presence. He sorta looks odd on stage, and his voice just didn't seem to blend ideally with Paul's. At any rate, Paul signed him on board. He just must view it differently. My opinion would be, that to Paul, jiving interpersonally and jamming well with each other is as much or maybe even more important than appearances.
