Hey, it’s Paul McCartney’s birthday! Happy 72nd old geezer. Little-known fact: Sir Paul actually made a short Grateful Dead “documentary” in 1995, consisting mainly of Linda’s photo shoots with the band in 1967 & ‘68. Sadly, I can’t find it anywhere! It’s supposedly pretty fun, with successions of shots that give it an animated feel. Hey, if any of you have a line on that little nugget, send it my way please! Deadhead Paul, who’da thunk. Anyway, in it’s place we’ll check The Boys’ take on Paul’s That Would Be Something, 3/28/94 at Nassau.
Many happy returns, Pauly. Meet you in the pourin’ rain.
Did you know the Dead had covered That Would Be Something?
Paul: ”I was aware that they did some of our stuff, several of our songs, and took it as a great compliment.”
Would you ever play one of theirs?
Paul: ”Oh, er, [flippant] tomorrow!”
Who is the better bass player, you or Phil Lesh?
Paul: ”Hmmm, [laughter] good question.” [mock-modest] “I dunno…me!!”
