    Paul was present yesterday at Bon Jovi’s MusiCares tribute. He got a shoutout from Jon during his speech: “The reason most if not all of us are here is because of you”.

    Some more info from Liz Hines on the Holly Days reissue in the works:

    "Last summer, Denny contacted Paul McCartney to discuss re-releasing his Buddy Holly album, Holly Days. Paul was all for it. He instructed his office to contact me to start the project, but everything came to a halt once Denny got ill in late July and my focus was on him 100%. Eventually, I’ll resume this, as it’s one of my promises I made to Denny."

    Nice to see the project continuing.

    Even nicer to know Denny personally started it so we will always have this quote when people inevitably call it a shameless cash grab instead of a loving tribute.

    Received the 2cd package today. I do like the underdubbed disc - gives it a rawer feel.

    Great to hear that Holly Days is moving forward - I have the cd and love it!

    Wow. Springsteen looks 10 years older than McCartney in that shot.

    Thank you! Go to 11:15. This sure sounds like a remix to me! That or a damn good remaster. Thank god. I’m very excited to get this. This album has needed a makeover forever.

    Fun to see the cast of The Beatles Cirque Du Soleil Love leading the Chiefs and 49ers out to the field for the Superbowl opening night celebrations. Something I learned this week from the Rich Eisen sports podcast, apparently part of Paul’s contract stipulation for performing at the Superbowl all those years ago was that he get vip tickets to every Superbowl thereafter. And he’s been at almost every one since, so it sounds like a good deal, especially when you know that the performers for the half time show don’t get paid. (Not sure if that was in effect back when Paul did it, but it’s certainly the case the last few years)
    Also, it makes me wonder, for such a British institution like Macca he sure is at a lot of American sporting events, and he always looks to be having a great time. Are there any pics of him at a soccer (I’m sorry, football) match or other non American sporting events (besides the Olympics) in his home country this century?

    That does sound very nice. It'll be great to have a sonic upgrade of this cool record.

    Sadly, in recent years, the 'net has seen a proliferation of garbage sites that post misleading clickbait crap. And AI has made it easier. Good rule: If it's not a site you know and trust, use extreme caution and don't rush to share.

    Cool photo. Looks like the stubble he's had for some years is finally becoming a regular beard.
