Your title is redundant, or I don't quite follow the "once upon a time" bit--he died before The Beatles broke up, that's why the picture on the cover of Abbey Road shows him with bare feet. In fact I'm sure his tragic young death was what caused The Beatles to break up....I said, "he died before The Beatles broke up"! What? Why would I want an order of wings right now? Sure I've heard of "Live Or Let Die," that was that pretty good Guns'N'Roses song a while back... Paul wrote what? I can't hear you, there's too much static on the internet, you're breaking up! Nn-nnn-nnnn-nnnn-nnnn-I can't hear you-nn-nnnn-nnnn. Paul is dead! Why can't you accept it! I won't hear any more of your stupid lies, lies, lies! It's slander! Or libel! Or both! Liar! I hate you!
So, a friend was telling me about when he realized his son was becoming an individual. He was driving his son around, and he realized he was having a conversation with him instead of the usual interrogation, "how was school" "what did you do" etc. "Ebony and Ivory" came on the radio and his son spoke up saying, "Dad! Did you know Paul McCartney was in a really cool band before?" And he was thinking, "Alright, my son!" Then his son continued, "Yeah, it was called Wings." And that was when he nearly drove into a ditch. Eric, I am the walrus, goo goo ga choo.
Steve, I'm trying to think of a similar conversation my adolescent self might have had with my father and I'm coming up with squat. I'm thinking that your friend and his son have Rock in common, just different eras of it.My father's music (other than classical), didn't register on my radar at all.
And Eric,Yellow matter custard, dripping from a dead dog's eye. Coo Coo Kachoo.
