"I liked Wings at the time but this guy seems to be lamenting he wasn't a neurosurgeon.
Or maybe a high end accountant eh? Get real. Oh, and I agree with Paul, Wings sucked."
paul said that wings sucked?
(i think the ref to "neurosurgeon" may have been a ref to "temporary secretary" from mccartney II)
my friends frown at me when i say that i like wings better than the beatles.
paul was definitely the most talented, he taught his wife to sing. if only john could've done that...
if i was stranded on a desert island, and had a choice of ten records to have, two of them would be wings over america, and mccartney II.
"Early Wings were pretty rough, not terribly good," admits Paul.
Seems pretty clear to me. And I agree with him, they weren't terribly good, or in other words, they sucked.
You have chosen your friends wisely.
I liked a lot of Wings stuff - Venus and Mars, At The Speed of Sound, Band On The Run. I also liked his first two solo albums - McCartney and RAM. If anyone saw Jerry McGuire, there is a scene where Tom is wooing the girl and an instrumental is playing. Took a while for me to figure it out but it came off of McCartney.
McCartney II? Really? I can understand Wings Over America, because '76 Wings was a really cooking live band, but McCartney II? Some of it is OK (Waterfalls, One of these Days), but there's too much "Bogey Music" and "Check My Machine" electronic stuff for my taste.
Oh, and if memory serves the Jerry McGuire soundtrack featured three tunes from McCartney. Cameron Crowe knows how to pick his background music...
