That's not what macca said...(i think i read it somewhere),EddieV wrote:Lazarus_2 wrote:I have yet to see Macca put as much energy into a solo project, as he did with Sgt.pepper.jules wrote:Absolutely, James. He felt sidelined and and as if he didn't really have a role during the Pepper sessions. According to G. Martin, George would spend hours (e.g. on the title track) carefully, meticulously, methodically and painstakingly working out every note of a solo. Then, later in the session, Macca would wipe it all and come up with a pithy, inventive solo in seconds to replace George's. While it's easy to feel sorry for George, Paul was so adept at thinking up musical brilliance on the spur of the moment.
There was, of course, a precedence for great Macca solos and lead guitar flourishes, e.g. The Night Before: Macca
Ticket To Ride: all Macca lead guitar
Another Girl: Macca lead guitar
Michelle: lead guitar solo (he actually used a bass to get that sound)
So, it's hardly surprising that Macca went on to perform most of the lead guitar work on an album that was, in effect, very much HIS baby.
Mabye his next album can be "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Man"..
I don´t think it is a easy as that. I think Macca tries his best every time he records e new record.
this is the first time he actually set-out to make a good record(CACITB), which resulted in his best album IMO.
