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!!!!
