nuthin' wrong with seuss on the loose...
hey chris...someone will always complain were paul is concerned: have since the day the beatles broke up...and probably a bit before...
but we all know that
i think he needs a little time away from his lifelong passion simply so he does not do any permanent damage...'cause that would damage his soul, dontchathink ?
but i certainly do not think, even a much as i'd love some new music, that he should take 6 mo's, one year...or more off: last time he took off that much time from the regular, everyday preparation and actually doing it (live singing) was after wings '79-80 and before the FITD tour-ish
and those who saw him a the beginning of that round will well remind us that his voice was not that good at first...it took almost to the time he got around to the N.A. part of the tour before it really began to fully come back...and even then, it as many spotty moments then we're seeing now
my gut feeling is that, right now, he might be a bit under the weather and needs both a bit of body rest and vocal rest....but a long leave of absense might not be the best thing, at his age, if he wishes a full-on return to the big mega shows he's been known for, well, since the dawn of time
as for what to sing,..if he can take any song and give it the twist he gave 'lady madonna' in the chaos special ???
i, for one, wouldn't care what he sang...i'd be glad to see a more subdued, relaxed, more personal show
crowds/fans that don't want to see an all acoustic set that lasts 1.5 hrs, maybe a bit more, can just not go...more tickets for the rest of us who care
at the end of the end it's the start of a journey to a much better place and this wasn't bad so a much better place would have to be special...no need to be sad...
