Or tunnel into one the night before....
Wouldn't that be Thanksgiving? If so, I'll have to sneak away from my one hour lunch break when I'm at work.
I prefer to quantum tunnel, me personally. But thanks.
Great name for a band!
A very wise analysis. This leaves the door “open “ just in case, although I always want more. If Paul still feels the creative muse, that’s great. If he decides not, we have more than enough work to enjoy and analyze for years to come. Any new work doesn’t “damage the legacy “, it enhances it.
I disagree with this. Paul could do lots of things that would “damage the legacy “, see Driving Rain, Pipes of Peace, Broadstreet... He is obviously working very hard at self editing, with the help of his producers, to not let many of his lesser songs/ideas onto his recent works.
Well, I think I’m referring more to those who automatically argue that it “damages the legacy “ because it’s not (Insert favorite here.....).
I agree with your driving rain and pipes assessments( I. have a soft spot for Broadstreet though).
Even if I don’t like an album I find something to enjoy. It’s all part of the nearly 50 year solo continuum.
I don't agree re: legacy. His legacy is set in stone and he's charming and well loved. A bad song or two...and even that is all a matter of individual perspective, won't mean a thing to how he'll be remembered.
I'm almost thinking it's only his hardcore fans who remember (what they think are) the misfires. Broadsheet, for example, means nothing damaging to me. It's a soundtrack, that's it.
Broadsheet? Hmmm. Many would agree, although they might spell it different: BroadSh*t...
So . . . general question: If there are 5000 hand-numbered RSD copies, why is it also on sale on Amazon? Are those part of the 5000? Is this production more than 5000 and just the RSD copies numbered?
That's exactly my point! To me, a rank amateur McCartney fan, it doesn't provoke strong feelings at all. I have much stronger negative feelings about Magical Mystery Tour...in fact, find it appalling, but that movie hasn't damaged The Beatles legacy in my eyes.
I really do think hardcore fans may tend to overthink things.
Quantum Tunnel personnel:
Ringo Hendrix- comb and paper
Dr. Pepper- Electric Triangle Player
Planckera- playing celery and carrots
Arnold Grove- yaks and Bip Bop samples
That'd be the most wicked epic music since Two Virgins right there if I do say so myself!
Only if I get an Electric Triangle solo in each performance!
Remember amazon also had listings for the last batch of colored vinyl reissues from the McCartney camp - and those orders weren’t fulfilled... [cue ominous organ sounds]
Of course! Just don't be offended if I go back and re-record it myself upon occasion.
Great session guys!
Hey! Arnie’s yaks ate my instruments!
Just to find out they aren't stocking it or decided to sell on eBay instead.
WHAT??? This is worse than Yoko sitting on an amp! This could only call for a break up! Oh, the fans (Frank and Bemagnus) will be so disappointed.
Well Bemagnus anyway.
My fans would be incensed!
Looks like tensions are getting pretty high in the band. We better call in Jinksy as a guest musician to calm the waters. He can play the straw and milk bubbles.
There’s an inherent logical problem in that statement...
Not my first choice unless I can pick who’s in the milk bubbles....
Seems Arnie is being “the quiet one.”
(or, more likely, “the sane one”)
Whatever Paul's intent, Egypt Station is manifestly the work of a man aware of his own mortality and increasingly conscious of the passage of time. That sense just permeates the album. To me that's a big part of what gives the album such an emotional kick for me. In some ways it's the most revealing thing McCartney's ever recorded, and it's dealing with pretty heavy stuff. That's partly why I have learned to live with Fuh You -- it's a useful, lighthearted break.
