Even if the sessions did not work, we'd still discuss them.
After all it would be "unreleased" Paul McCartney music, and we've been spending decades talking about that topic.

They've scored a hit with new album Day & Age, but it could be more a case of Day & Aged if rumours that The Killers are set to work with Paul McCartney turn out to be true.

According to UK tabloid The Sun, the former Beatle watched the band perform at London's Royal Albert Hall last month and then told Brandon Flowers and co that he'd love to record with them.

The paper quotes an unnamed "source close to McCartney" as saying: "Paul had a great time at the gig. He loves their music and their great attitude.

"He was as pleased to meet them as they were to meet him but they were gobsmacked when he said he'd love to do something with them music-wise."

Of course, this could all be nonsense, but The Killers' recent single with Elton John and Neil Tennant suggests that they're open to the idea of collaboration, while McCartney has worked with, well, just about everyone in his time.


Your thoughts on this possible collaboration would be?


There are some key words to consider here: "rumours", "tabloid" "unnamed source"

Once again I'd take "news" from tabloids with a grain of salt. There is likely no truth to it whatsoever. That being said, if the Killers recorded something with Paul, well good for them. :-)

maybe...but only if we were aware of it. it's likely that paul and steve miller did more together than what appeared on flaming pie, but i am not aware of what was unreleased. same with paul's work with elvis costello on flowers, off the groung, spike and rose. probably some leftovers there too...

although, to be fair...i am not the most knowledgable bootleg guy out there. there is probably tons that many of you know about that i have never even heard of. i can think of very little unreleased paulie stuff out there. i guess i am one un-knowing dude, huh?
