Quote from: Mr_Charlie
This is the drummer who has been playing with him for the last few years, and garners accolades everywhere he played.

He was dong fills, same as Ringo, except he did his own rather thatn try to copy Ringo note for note.

I still don't get all this Paul bashing. I think he did an excellent job at the superbowl (remember guys he's 62).Drive My Car and Get Back were a little bland but the Live and Let Die and Hey Jude performances were amazing.

Paul is in a class all by himself as a rock legend & it was a great Super Bowl halftime performance safe as milk but his time has come & gone as an influential artist.

Nice post link for everyone there Tkitna....Abe Laboriel JR is a fantastic drummer and singer...Top session guy and a real power-house..that's his style....He's not gonna just go and copy Ringo licks and he's been touring these songs with Paul for quite a while now. No doubt he wants to bring his style to it. Obviously with no objections from Paul.
Was'nt his father a top session bass player of the same name?

yeah Abe is a good drummer. I have the 'Back In The US' dvd and he does a great job in every song. He even sings along with Macca on Eleanor Rigby.

I said it before, but I'll say it again--Paul has the unenviable task of competing with himself in every way possible, his Beatle past, his (numerous) masterpieces, changing the world, etc., but he's doing a hell of a job. He's out there working his arse off with causes, creating, writing, recording a new album, shows here and there, planning another tour--an incredible amount of energy, initiative, ambition, and focus for a guy who could easily sit the rest of his life getting fat in a chair watching TV. My Dear Ydoll Gwyn--mark down how quickly you can run one mile today and hold on to it. Run the same mile when you're 62+ and see if you're still keeping the same pace.

Really?

Abe is freaking incredible. I need to watch it again I guess as I didnt see any mistakes or oddness in his playing. He has been with Paul for about 3 years now so he's no stranger to the song. Here's a quick link to Abe-

(notice some of the other bands he's performed with too)


SSShucks I knew he played for Sting. Wish I had posted that earlier for full kudos brownie point!!! lol

Wrong!....He still influences me and many other bands here in the UK.

Hilarious! Funniest post for ages!  :D

Wayne (who you responded to in that quote) is talking INFLUENCE, on a different  level all together from "like and therefore imitate".


And to all you people who are starting to gang up on me: go right ahead. It says more about you than me! ;D

Only your 'like and therefore imitate' remark...Otherwise why would you have found my post so hilarious? A dig at me performing in a Beatle band perhaps?...That's all.

I had no idea you performed in a Beatle band! Talk about tripping into it!

What I was trying to point out (clumsily, yes) was that "influence" can be at lots of levels. Just because there are a few bands that imitate aspects of Paul's styles etc doesn't amount to influence, in the deep sense that I think Wayne meant. I didn't have you in mind (as I didn't know about the Apple Beatles you play in). I actually had the Australian band JET in mind.

Sorry if I may have mis-interpreted but an influential artist is someone who inspires others?.....What is so hilarious?....Not wanting a row but 'Can be' is a bit of a vague explanation...Therefore on whatever level, the point I make is that he still influences. Those days have not gone as Wayne suggested. Please explain the other elements of influence as my IQ cannot fully grasp at what you are getting at.

OK, I'll approach it like this. Regardless of what "influence" means, Paul influences very few these days, COMPARED to the Beatle days. I think most people would agree with that.

The next bit is more controversial. I think Paul had little influence on popular music after the Beatles broke up EXCEPT that his bass playing became a model for many, many musicians who weren't even born until the late 70s!

I thought Paul's performance was fab. Not going into some mass commentary. ^^;

But was anyone else incredibly intregiued with the stage floor? :O

[*totally trying a random subject*] Seriously, though. I couldn't stop watching the floor. And then I rewatched it and tried to focus on Paul. XD;
