Jeez, you try and have a thoughtful discussion to put things in perspective by pointing out sales figures and sales threshold certifications... ...and you get called negative and angry... ...and you're accused of having an agenda... ...because everyone's pulling this "great for an old man" bit because 120,000 fans went out and bought a new album in the same week.

The real sign that McCartney's new album is truly making any impact of lasting significance is the singles charts. So far, the double A-side of "I Don't Know"/"Come On to Me" has charted, but only in France, bubbling way under respectively at #164 and #147. "Fuh You" has not charted anywhere. McCartney will shelve this new release after a while just l

Not really "wow" when you put things in perspective. The #1 US, #3 UK, etc., represents (mostly) physical sales -- that means aging Baby Boomer fans who still buy physical product, along with middle-aged 50ish consumers, are all buying it the same week. Chart figures will plummet from the second week on... His previous album "New" also made #3 UK as well as #3 US -- but

Quotegotdablouse Looking at this pic it's hard to believe Mick is only 8 years younger than the Killer ! Well, hate to say it, but Jerry Lee's got better skin! Recall a TV interview from the 1980s, 20/20 or something like that, Jerry Lee's reclining on a sofa saying he'll be out there when he's 90, and the interviewer Geraldo or some such other TV interviewer (th

Were they never big in Europe? You were lucky! All I heard in 9th grade (1981) was Shake It Up! That band and Journey were what sent me clamoring for Stones, Beatles, Doors, Cream, -- anything -- just get me out of that parking lot, away from these... Cars!

@RollingFreak, Sure, I see what you mean. One day, when I was 23, I get on a subway train for college classes, and I'm thinking, 'At 23 Paul McCartney was writing Yesterday, and here I am writing dumb little music/film reviews for the college newspaper.' Honey Pie and Martha My Dear, Paul wrote stuff like that because musically he had old-fashioned sensibilities -- his father

I recall reading about the group thing in one of those latter day Beatles biographies, sometime in the 2000s -- it may even have been in the Howard Sounes bio on McCartney, but I can't quite recall at this distance...

QuoteRocky Dijon It's still published by ABKCO since her version of the song came out in 1969. STICKY FINGERS is that weird grey area where the songs are published by ABKCO but were released after the Decca and London deals expired. ABKCO has the rights to anthologize the singles from it, though they can't reissue the album itself. I'd love to know more about how it all worked and

Quotemarianna QuoteBowieStone Quotemarianna I first saw Paul in 1988 at the UC Berkeley football stadium. Paul didn’t tour in 1988. 1990? Possibly. It's been a long time. In any case, he isn't a good act to see in a large outdoor venue. He has the pyrotechnics on "Live and Let Die" and that's about it. Songs like "Blackbird" don't carry well. That s

Didn't hear this "surprise" show". Regarding Macca's singing voice... and even his speaking voice... well... ...just going on that Marc Maron interview posted above, which was great by the way... ...the reason Mick's voice is still great is because he always could sing. In later years, Mick has even taken singing lessons -- or should we say voice coaching

Not even going to bother with the new album. It will never grow on me. The previous album "New" I only listened to twice. There were some nice, catchy tunes on it. Just as, I'm sure, is the case with Eqypt Station. But we don't talk about Paul McCartney for what he writes NOW. We're interested because of what he wrote THEN. The Beatles are archetypal.

A bit of a gyp. The thread title indicates there will be such an album next year. But there won't. The best memorial albums are the ones he played on. The songs that get ignored in concerts.
