HAHA. It's true, Heather! It's true! Steve is really a nice, normal guy. He's just a life-long Maccamaniac! [:D]

Hmmm...well I don't think I'm Down was terrible, but it just seemed to me that Paul didn't put enough into it, vocally. I guess it just goes back to the thing that his voice was massively under-rehearsed. However, Rusty's guitar solo on I'm Down was SMOKIN'!! It was Rusty's debut to the world (at least with Macca), and I just remember thinking, "Who IS this guy?? He's given a whole new sound to Macca's music! YES!" As for the accapella Yesterday, yeah that was pretty bad. Well actually, it was OK, until the final "Mmmmmmmm mmm mmm mmm" where his voice cracked. I was like "Nooooooooooooooo!!" LOL

We agree on Im Down..kind of, LOL....I think he put a great deal of effort into it, but didnt have alot there. The octive was the original, and I like how he tried, but it scared me, because I came away thinking...awesome..he really tried..i guess he's kind of finally showing his age....and that's OK..it was just great to see him..AND that smoking guitar player and drummer..... and If that had been the worst one, i'd have been estatic. But I think it was the BEST one. Then he tours 6 months later and just blows THOSE and everyone else's performances away.....amazing///

Good point, Steve. I think I may change my tune about I'm Down. You're right, I think he really DID try. I mean, I have never seen Macca NOT try. Like you said, he tried his hardest, but just didn't have a lot there during that performance. But yes, when April came around, all doubt was cast away. I saw the best performance of my life. Long live El Macca!!

Besides....during I'm down, we got to see him do that classic face crinkle when he's doing his little richard shred, which was very cool..never thought Id see that again--it WAS just so great to see him...and then Rusty.....to quote NB...

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

He WAS smokin!

it's funny..but the CFNYC reminded me of two other benefits that I thought he didnt do well at....

Let It Be at Live Aid in 1985 and Long Tall Sally at The Princes Trust in 1986....but were under-rehearsed and his voice sounded shot...he DID sound good at Monserrat, though...so that blows my theroty, LOL

This has nothing to do with the material. I cant speak about overseas, but in the U.S. hits and album sales are all about marketing. And of course marketing is done by the record label. There is no reason why someone like Cher, Santana, Tina Turner, etc. can have multiplatnum albums decades after their prime years (60's&70's) and be plastered all over the radio and VH1/MTV and yet the most prolific singer/songwriter/musician isn't even a blip on the radar screen. The radio plays some of the worst & boring music I have ever heard. Its just that the marketing is so intense that people go out and buy this stuff simply cos its on the radio 24/7. A ton of his songs from recent albums could've been No. 1 hits if they were just given the proper exposure. I've got to wonder if Capitol is really behind him or if its simply not important to him to have a #1 single anymore.

Exactly. I agree with all your points, Darkeyes. Paul could EASILY be number one in the charts. It's all about MARKETING!

It took awhile but great post everybody!! After reading your post I went back and watched my CNYC tape. I'm Down rocked, Paul just needed a rythm guitarist to round out his band. His voice sounds fine to me, I always look forward to Paul performing new material so Lonely Road was the highlight for me, Rusty Andersons solo just cooked!!
I don't like FALTAF so it was in my opinion a terrible choice, Paul should have done Driving Rain or About You. To be honest, I think Paul just wants to do what he wants, keep it simple, not fuss over it to much and just have fun. Sometimes I think it's us fans who want more for him!!
Marketing has a lot to do with it, but have you seen the infomercial for the Stones Forty Licks CD?? I call it an infomercial because that's what it looks like!! I also want to make the comment that don't forget Paul has toured the world several times, so people are more familiar with Wings music than we may think!!
Paul needs to do more high profile gigs, he needs to rock when he does them, and he needs to do his music, not the Beatles!! I mean imagine if Paul went on MTV and did Smile Away, The Mess, Girlschool, Stranglehold, 1985, Hi Hi Hi, and Juniors Farm!!
Every jaw in the place would drop!!!!
