The 50th anniversary of the debut album of Wings “WILD LIFE” was remastered at half speed and released on February 4th. Where is that credit card????

With the vaccines available to those who chose to take, it appears the summer of ’22 may finally see more normalcy in our outdoor lives.
“I’ve been doing this for a long time,” he said. “So another me takes over: Professional Performing Paul—the triple ‘P’!” If the question is “Why do you keep at it?,” the answer is plain: “I plan to continue living. That’s the central idea.” -Paul
Following more than a year of speculation, Paul McCartney on February 18th announced the GOT BACK Tour, a 13-city return to U.S. stages, kicking off April 28 with Paul’s first ever show in Spokane WA and running through to June 16 in East Rutherford NJ, where Paul will play Met Life Stadium for the first time since 2016.
I’m sure if things go well…. This tour will extend…
Things we WILL and things we can MAYBE look forward to happening this year.
From March 18 of this year until March of 2023 “The Beatles: Get Back to Let It Be” will be exhibited at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
-Fans will experience The Beatles’ creative journey through the exhibit’s original instruments, clothing, and handwritten lyrics used by The Beatles and seen in the film, including items loaned directly by Paul McCartney, Ringo Star, and the estates of George Harrison and John Lennon.
The exhibit will feature high-definition film clips, audio, and custom projections, transporting fans into The Beatles’ vibrant world of January 1969.
Some of the exhibit’s unique items include:
Paul McCartney’s black and gray shirt that was worn in the studio and handwritten lyrics for “I’ve Got A Feeling.”
Ringo Starr’s maple Ludwig drum kit and his borrowed red raincoat from the rooftop performance.
John Lennon’s iconic eyeglasses, Wrangler jacket, an Epiphone electric guitar, and handwritten lyrics for “Dig A Pony.”
George Harrison’s pink pinstripe suit and handwritten lyrics for “I Me Mine.”
Fans will also enjoy audio engineer, producer, and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Inductee Glyn Johns’ record acetate from the sessions and iconic photography by Linda McCartney and by Ethan Russell, who documented the band’s January 1969 rehearsals, sessions, and rooftop performance, and whose photos are featured in the Let It Be album art.
Like Jackson’s “Get Back” docuseries, the exhibit shows how The Beatles composed and recorded many of their iconic songs from scratch. The exhibit’s three screening rooms feature a selection of footage from each location from the docuseries: Twickenham, Apple Studios, and the Apple Corps rooftop.
The footage from the recording sessions and conversations turn the clock back to 1969, showing the intimacy, joyousness, and humor as The Beatles write and record songs for Let It Be and some songs featured on Abbey Road and future solo albums.

(Maybe finally “LONDON TOWN/BACK TO THE EGG” era. These are the only Wings albums not dealt with. I must remember to start selling my blood and body parts to be able to afford the various formats this will bring!
Well……. This is it. February 27th. I woke, and have all the memories and all the content, and I will embrace all things Paul/Fabs until the day my eyes close forever……
In 2023, if life works out, we will be back to recap 2022 and start our next phase of McCartney’s life. The live albums, the alternative albums and his classical material.
Thank you to everyone that has spent any time reading and remembering these memories the last 18 months. It was healing for me during stressful times.
Stay safe and healthy and remember, that Paul’s message was always in his songs and continue savoring A Life Through The Eyes Of Paul McCartney.
