That has parallels with 'The King of Fuh' by Brute Force, the song that John & George picked up on, and was released as a single on Apple in 1969.

Anyone see Paul's Carpool Karaoke?

Yep, I liked it.

Love Paul of course. But there's something about Cordon I just can't warm too(though I do hate this trolling of him on Twitter).
James's over singing in the car annoyed me a bit. But I did like the whole episode. makes me want to return to Liverpool to do the Beatles tours again. Highly recommend The Beatles story at the Albert Dock.

The pub gig was awesome, though it wasn't as spontaneous as it was made out, as spoiled by comedian John Bishop, who posted a video on his Twitter.

I did and enjoyed it. EVERYONE I know is talking about it, posting it on FB, etc. It's a damn shame he isn't releasing the album now because there's a real buzz around him right now. Waiting until September to release it is gonna kill that, sadly.

Especially because one of the guys who looked shocked/surprised in the crowd is Paul's long time security guy! :lol:

(he's the guy with the white hair, mustache, and tattoos).

Carpool Karaoke was excellent, although I'm not a fan of Cordon either. That didn't take away from the excellence though.

Damon Albarn warned Paul McCartney not to work with Kanye West:

What does everyone think of this? I think Damon was right.

How did you feel about "New"? I really detested that album!


Oh I loved New. I agree with you Drew that Come On to Me godson too long. Maybe that’s why I didn’t like it. I’ll givethem both another chance though.


I apologize for my delay in responding. I've been very ill lately and out of commission/the loop.

I must admit I only listened to both of those respective tracks once (and that was in the midst of posting my earlier initial reaction).

I still contend upon my immediate impression it's the best Sir Paul has sounded in years. I don't think he intends to reinvent the wheel at 76 whatsoever and there is no way he will ever surpass what he did w/the Beatles and his earlier solo career (probably for me up until "Flowers in the Dirt")..... But lord, to me Paul sounded SO FRESH, revitalized/re-inspired... And again....I resent emphasizing the age.... But at 76 to still capture that sound! Only him and Brian Wilson are still capable both at 76 to pull that feat off! I'm way excited now and an immense anticipation to hear how the remaining tracks sound like! First time in awhile I've been this eager for new Sir Paul!

My latest book review is on a fantastic book...one of the rare essential Beatles books, Peter Doggett's You Never Give Me Your Money -->

http://rnrchemist.blogspot.com/2018/07/ ... -your.html

The crazy thing is that it took me so long to review it. I've had it for years and have read it multiple times, but for some weird reason I never got around to reviewing it until now. I gave it a fresh re-reading for this review and enjoyed it (and still learning some new bits) as much as I did the first time.

If anyone has read it (or even if you haven't), let's discuss!
