Last night I saw the best rock ‘n’ roll concert ever.  Paul McCartney.  He played music from all phases of his career and didn’t disappoint.  I enjoyed hearing live versions of songs from his Flaming Pie and Memory Almost Full albums, especially Dance Tonight because whenever I play that song at home I dance with my 2 year old son Nicholas.  As much as I was enjoying the concert, for at least the first half I was a little choked up, feeling guilty at how much fun I was having without my wife Diana and Nicholas.  I so wish they could’ve been there with me to experience the joy of this great performance and music!  After years of listening to these songs on record, tape, cd, radio and watching music videos and concerts, to see and hear this music I grew up with and love come to life is an experience I will never forget.  It’s almost indescribable.  McCartney is a multi-talented musician and I came away surprised and impressed at how well he plays lead guitar!  That was a definite bonus.  I remember my mom once commenting, while watching a Wings concert on tv, how much fun McCartney has at his live performances.  Last night was no exception.  He talked to and kidded with the audience often and when he mentioned the Red Sox, Green Monster and Ted Williams’ home-run seat the crowd roared!  I’ve seen girls screaming at Elvis Presley and The Beatles in concert footage and for the first time while at a live performance, I heard the loudest scream come from a girl when Paul started singing Hey Jude.  I swear, if we were indoors I think she would’ve blown my eardrums out!  Thanks to my friend Rich for this fantastic opportunity! Below is a list of what I can remember was played last night, not in order.

Can Sir McCartney pitch at all? The Red Sox are looking for some arms.

Here's a photo taken from a co-worker the following night.



I'm looking forward to Macca's next solo album and if he comes to Fenway again, will try to catch his performance.  Get it? "Catch"? Fenway park?  Har har har!  ;D

Thanks, Schofield Kid, for helping me post this photo!

Yeah, mostly 'home runs', with the exception of a song by the recent Firemen album, which I didn't care for at all.  There was only one other song that wasn't a favorite and that's Calico Skies but it was enjoyable enough.

McCartney recently played Fenway Park again and set new attendance records.  I wish I had the opportunity to go.  Still the best concert I've ever been to!
