A brief clip is there now, but I don't know how long they keep them there.

They fawned over him, as was to be expected. They talked, in fact, about how he deals with people fawning over him all the time.

He sang a little bit with Whoopi and the audience joining in, and he played a few notes on a tiny harmonica he pulled out of his pocket (after Barbara Walters asked him if he was "getting out his instrument"). No regular "performance" as such, though. Overall it was a nice show.

The whole audience Silly Love Songs was just plain silly and used up valuable interview time. Sure he brought out his tiny instrument which was entertaining but he should always bring an acoustic so at least he could play something and show off his talents. Sure, we all know his talents but the purpose of going on these shows is self-promotion for new fans.

Best news that came out of the interview was that he is now recording an album with son James.

I agree with you Mike it was almost embarrassing. But I don't agree with you that he should always bring a guiter with him. Yes we all know his talents but I think it's a cheap way on hearing him play.He didd'nt bring a guiter with him on Howard Stern,and that interview was fantastic.I like hearing Paul speak about his life and recording a new cd.If I want to hear him play I'll put on a cd.If he plays thats wasting valuable interview time :-BD

Unfortuantely interviews will often be as good as those conducting it. Barbara's idea for the Silly Love Song sing along was highly embarrassing and really was out of Paul's control. I think he was secretly rather embarrassed by the whole thing as his latter comments suggest. Just think we could of heard so much more about the new album with James, whether he is considering touring again etc... Sadly these American interveiwers often just want to flirt with Paul.
Muscians are best interviewed by other musicians, not American 'celebrity' interviewers.
