That clip is pure rock & roll.
You've never let me down yet!
Btw.....heard McCartney's new album last night on WFUV.
Dont recall if you are a Beatles/McCartney fan.
Thought it was well done, outstanding arrangements etc. (Clapton on this track, Diana Krall on others)
The Beatles are my second favorite band after The Who. IMO, Lennon-McCartney are the greatest songwriters (consistency over a prolonged period of time, whilst embracing, or starting, new musical directions) in the rock genre.
I have not enjoyed Paul's latest solo endeavors, as I feel he has "lost his burst" as a songwriter and performer. (Don't think I can hear "Hey Jude" for at least another decade or so.) He's still a god, but I have a difficult time listening to the new stuff. I didn't like this tune, but will hunt down the other tracks and give them a listen.
