    Paul's reputation for silly love songs (another meh Paul song redeemed by a killer bass line) is mostly borne of his singles and hits. The albums have some great material on them. Disc 2 of Wingspan is a good place to start digging into some of his better solo stuff.

    I’m not a fan of the song either way.

    I never thought of the Stones as a blues band.

    Comparing the Stones and Beatles. I have a feeling the Stones would have been the better live act in their day.
    Undeniably the Beatles were better singers, but also undeniably the Stones were better guitarists.

    They have both written great songs and songs that stink. They both started off recording blues based songs too.

    I thought it was an unnecessary comment from Paul, I would have though it time to let their body of work do the talking for them.

    Regards

    Mark

    Back in the early days of each band, I would rather have seen a Beach Boys concert.
    I loved the “under My Thumb” era.

    A week ago I would have said the same thing but on briefly listening to them today the Beatles version is more highly produced and yet lacks the energy of the Stones version.

    I think the Stones wrote fine pop songs such as Ruby Tuesday and She’s a rainbow, but ultimately it wasn’t their thing. They were fans of blues music and pursued that sound.

    Songs like can you hear me knocking is a great song and Beatles couldn’t have done a song like that in a million years. The same can be said of Beatles songs and the Stones.

    I was just going to post about seeing them in their club days (old video). I thought they were great.

    The Beatles were outstanding live performers. Harrison was a very good guitarist and writer.

    I don’t get it either. Both John and Paul had many disputes with each other over the years. They fought like brothers, but also loved each other dearly like brothers. Paul has the utmost respect for John and expresses that on a regular basis.

    It is hardly undeniable that the stones were better guitarists.

    Yeah...I got this in the Fiction section:

    500+ pages..I couldn't put it down.

    Who am I kidding? At this point I can barely pick it up!

    20210923_223111.jpg

    PS- All kidding aside and excellent, thorough and well researched tome.

    Babiuk did a similar book on The Beatles gear...also excellent. I'd highly recommend either or both.

    He didn't say anything false. It's only a cut if you take him out of context.

    Jagger's response was graceful and dignified with an affirmation of both bands and members and the context they played live shows in context and comparison.
    That says more than any disapproval or point scoring comeback.
    Class act and comment.
