Paul´s almost similar voices

Postby dsnito » Fri Jun 28, 2002 9:54 pm

There are two singers I think that sounds almost like Paul´s voice:
Gilbert O´Sullivan(does anyone remmember?)
John Wholoschuk - Klaatu
Does anybody know someone with similar voice to our Macca??

Peace.

COmparing Paul McCartney into Gilbert O'Sullivan. Don't you have any shame, dog?

Actually, i think Billy Joel in his early days when he had a tenor voice sounded like Paul McCartney.

Fact is Paul has a unique voice - but Gilbert O'Sullivan sadly died of a self-imposed hunger strike when he protested against the IRA recklessly killing and bombing English subjects. O'Sullivan wanted to be a martyr for the PEace movement. Sadly, when he died, nobody remembered who he was and outside of Cullybackey in County Antrim - cause he never had another hit. nobody knows the sad story of the "Alone Again" naturally singer with a heart determined to end Irish terror and massacre.

Of course Paul has a unique voice fella, COMPARING is not the therm,
I asked which voice ALMOST sounds LIKE Macca, and I still think that O´Sullivan singing "Alone Again" reminds slightly Paul´s singing.
And just try to hear "Sub Rosa Subway" of canadian Beatle-cover band KLAATU, and you´ll see that´s sounds almost like Paul. But, surely we can´t equalize no one with our Macca.
And thanks for the O´Sullivan´s info... I didn´t know about him for a long time.

Peace.

I think some of Joel's "Nylon Curtain" was more Lennon sounding.

I don't know if this guy's music is still available, but back in the 70s Emmit Rhodes released a self titled album and everyone raved about how much he sounded like Paul McCartney. He had quite a few hits off of the album, "Fresh as a Daisy", "Ever Find Yourself Running", and others I don't remember. I used to have the LP but don't anymore. Does anyone out there remember this guy? I forgot all about him until I saw this post.

Since you mentioned Gilbert O'Sullivan, I liked his songs too but I think he doesnt sound like Paul. In his own right, I really like the songs "Clair" and "What's in a Kiss?", very 70's.
