      Hello, I was watching the videos of the current tour, and seeing "Here Today" and "Something" he dedicates a few words to John and George, and in "My Valentine" to Nancy, but I have not seen him dedicate a few words to Linda , I know he sings "Maybe im amazing" but I don't know if he's still dedicating it to him, before he did it with "My Love". Someone knows something about it?

        My guess is since it is probably his best know non-Beatle song and over 50 years old that most people know it is about Linda McCartney and it does not need dedication.

          Yeah, he stopped saying "This one's for Linda" (about "Maybe I'm Amazed") a number of years ago. You'd have to be living under a rock to not know he wrote it for her! 😂

          Too bad he can no longer sing "My Love" - he just can't physically do it anymore. 😢

            Once he married Nancy, the dedications to a previous wife stopped... as they should.

              He continued dedicating it to her for several years after his marriage to Nancy. I know I saw it as recently as 2017.

              She wasn't "a previous wife," she was a beloved wife and mother of his children who died.

                Yes! You are correct and I totally agree! 👍

                  Seems that since he's stopped mentioning her in a dedication, he agrees.

                  Also, he stopped singing "My Love"at his shows  after his marriage to Nancy.

                    I think most of it has to do with the ability to sing it.

                      Exactly! Just like the other songs he had to drop - The Long And Winding Road and Yesterday. 

                        I still maintain he should do "Riding to Vanity Fair" and dedicate it to Heather.
