MOST DISAPPOINTED IN PAUL MOMENTS
1. Not showing up for R&R Hall of Fame - really missed an opportunity for a grand moment
2. Pipes of Peace - not because of MJ - Say Say Say is a perfectly acceptable pop number - but for basically throwing together all the rejects from Tug of War instead of making a proper album.
3. Live Aid - the mic problem was not his fault, but I think he would have been better served doing 3-4 songs - less than a year later at Prince's Trust he did Get Back w/Tina Turner, I Saw Her Standing There - throw in Let It Be, and the set is that much better.
4. Song selection - Off the Ground - not only did he really miss the boat on song selection by leaving so many great cuts as b-sides (he let the band vote on their favorites), but he actually left quite a bit "in the can" as well - "In Liverpool" was recorded in 1992. Likewise, "Return To Pepperland", "Your School", the Costello track "Tommy's Coming Home" and "Shallow Grave" - all were around in 1992 and all were available for the OTG sessions - he could have had a real comeback record there.
5. The whole Heather thing
