audi:Friends...

...just watched our Paulie's set again.

Some of y'all need to chill the f-ck out.

This man has got a LOT of Macca-vocal-magic in him yet.

Much ado about, well, not quite nothin', but still...

...just chill.

Damn.

Some of you sound like you're ready to dig the man's grave.

Thank you for saying this. I'm just shaking my head at some of the comments in this thread, like one that said he should drop out of performing at the Olympics. Maybe some should be a bit more appreciative about what Paul has given the world in the past 50 years instead of whining about what Paul should and should not do.

SusyLuvsPaul:I didn't say anyone wasn't a "fan" on this thread. I do find it bizarre that at this site of all places you can't praise Macca wholeheartedly without being pounced on and his so-called shortcomings pointed out. Many people don't think he sounds all that bad "live" on t.v. But God help you if you dare to say that. Even here.

Martin by the way has always backed up what he states with a plethora of facts and statistics, or almost always, seems to almost have the mind of a lawyer or such. He asked where's the "official" proof and statements that Macca is going downhill real bad, and the poster was unable to come up with anything "official."
But sneered at Martin anyway.

Elton John must have known his voice wasn't up to par but that didn't stop him from singing at the Diamond Jubilee concert. He sounded the worst of anyone I heard that night. I still liked seeing him there.

Most people have the sense not to expect rock stars or anyone to look and sound as they did starting out many decades ago. They have empathy and understanding.

We should all know by now Suzy, that Paul has some "Anti-fans" here who carp at his every move. Let's be grateful that Paul chooses to ignore crap like this. I will see him next chance I get and I will love every second of it.

The people who feel disturbed by Paul's vocal decline and prefer to see him go out on top as a live performer rather than be seen as a sad shadow of his former self are NOT "anti-fans." If anything it's the people ignoring reality and chirping mindlessly that Paul can do no wrong are the real anti-fans. True fans have open eyes and open minds, even when what those eyes and minds take in is difficult.

Wow it's comments like these that keep me a way from this board a lot. I get so tired of regulars here calling themselves "True Fans" while the rest of us aren't. Not all of us are ignoring reality and saying Paul can do no wrong . (we all know from history he is far from perfect) Some of us just get tired of the endless whining here. Paul re-releases an album and OMG he should have done this and this and this and NOT this. Paul goes on a tour, OMG he should be singing this and this and this. That is one of the reasons why I said above that some folks need to take a step back and relish in all of the wonderful things Paul has given the world in the last 50 years.

dear oh dear.
16 posts in and you are an expert on the messageboard.
infact if we abide be your suggested rules there would be nothing left to talk about,hence the board would probably ceases to exist.
of course I still feel you are more than entitled to your own viewpoint/stance on this and that is the difference between many of us on here

So suddenly I think I'm an expert because I stated what I observe a lot around here? And just because someone doesn't post all the time doesn't mean they don't read the threads I stayed away from the board for a while but came back to start reading again. In fact last year someone told me that I wasn't a big Paul fan and a brand new fan because i didn't post often. Didn't know being a huge fan of Paul's meant you had to post here constantly, and that is the mentality of some posters on this board.

paulfan11:The last Beatles related item I bought was today. I got the new Life magazine Beatles edition.

I just got it today (last copy!) at Barnes & Noble.
P.S. They have Beatles and John Lennon/NYC T-shirt cases/covers for Nook there!!

Isn't it a great edition? I saw they were pre selling a hard copy edition on Amazon, but I couldn't wait to get it.

I don't have a nook, but do have an iPad, will have to look for one for that. I'm sure they exist somewhere!

I was in NYC over Labor Day weekend and went into a store that had tons of old Beatles items. Very expensive, but was a lot of fun to look at.

I pre-ordered a few of the new vinyl re-issues coming out next month.

Got my Magical Mystery Tour Blu Ray yesterday, can't wait to watch all the extras.

"James was 5 so no that's not him. It's an adult you can tell."

That picture is in the photo book of Linda's they put out a few years ago. The caption says it's James in 1980.

Post

Well, that is what the caption says in the book. I can take a picture of it for you if you would like. Why would Paul and Mary label a picture as James if it wasn't?

Post

I doubt it, it was taken in Sussex and the kid has the same blonde hair James had as a child. The book is a coffee table sized book and this picture is a full page. It is clearly a child and not a "little person"
