I really enjoyed the show.There were some really good renditions of Paul's tunes. I could've done without a couple of the guest performers but all in all it was good TV.

I agree. I was very thrilled with how the whole program went. I thought the Jonas Brothers were lame and I personally thought Jack White was horrible. Other than that, I thought they ranged from good to incredible.

I was touched with the some of the exchanges, specifically Elvis Costello to Paul McCartney.

A cool performance indeed.

Caught most of this show, and enjoyed it. Along with those mentioned, they could have done without the celebrities on stage sing along at the end. I think that's PM's touring band Great band, loved that drummer- his bass drum was almost as tall as he is round and a great style and sound.

I don't feel this way about many famous musicians, but I've got to agree with BigDaveOnBass. I too would love to meet Paul McCartney and be able to talk music. He is an amazing talent and seems to be a genuinely humble and gracious guy.

Yeah, that was Paul's touring band who backed up everybody (and actually made the Jonas Bros listenable).

The only "guest" artist that I really didn't care for was Jack White; and if Faith Hill wasn't "easy on the eyes", I probably wouldn't have cared for "Long & Winding Road" all that much....thought Corrinne Bailey Rae & Herbie Hancock's verson of "Blackbird" was outstanding. Elvis' "Penny Lane" was phenomenal....Dave Grohl's "Band On The Run" was really good, even though the key for him to sing was wrong, he managed to re-do the vocal part to not go out of his range. Stevie Wonder...well, was Stevie Wonder....and Seinfeld was actually funny. (used to like him, but kind of burnt out of his schtick)

I've had the great fortune to have met Paul's brother Michael on one occasion...and if Paul is ANYTHING close to being like him, "down to earth" would be an understatement.

Really enjoyed it as well but did not get to see all of it. Elvis Costello was great as was the guest piccolo trumpeter who nailed all of the solos note for note. Loved hearing Hancocks playing on Blackbird.
I was disappointed that Paul did not play his signature violin bass. He played acoustic guitar and piano on the tunes I saw him do. Did I miss that part?
I wanted to hear whether Obama could sing on the Hey Jude ending but he wasnt miked

I seen him live in Nashville this past Monday night! He was awesome! He played a 3 hour set with no breaks except for his encores! It's worth every penny you pay for a ticket! I'm very happy I got to see him atleast once in my life time!

The only bass he played Monday night was his Hofner, probably the one he played with the Beatles by the look of the finish. He played a couple of Les Pauls and the original Epiphone Casino that he used to record "Paperback Writer" according to him. He played a mandolin on one song, and an acoustic on 4 or 5 tunes, piano on 3 or 4 tunes & a Gibson ukulele that George Harrison gave him that he used to performed the opening of "Something" as a tribute to George. He was quite the talker and told several stories during the show. One of my favorites was when he met Hendrix two days after Sgt. Peppers came out and Hendrix opened his show with it the night Paul went to see him. He said Hendrix asked if Eric Clapton was there and when the spotlight found him Jimi asked him if he would tune his guitar.

I thought Dave Grohl did a great job with Band On The Run. IMHO, it was the best cover of the evening ( I am no Dave Grohl fan either). Totally agree with the opinions about Paul's band. They are first rate and really make a huge difference in the final product. Was that Paul's daughter sitting next to him or new lady friend? Either way, meow

His brother Michael, his son James & his daughter Mary were sitting behind him. I think that was his new lady friend sitting next to him. If the tabloids are correct, they've been dating since about when his divorce was final.
