Oh, sembrano davvero due vecchi marpioni! Hai detto bene, Cristiano!!! :D
E non vedo Donovan, diventato bruttissimo pure lui!!!! (ai tempi veniva chiamato "il menestrello".....) :P
In quanto alla MT, è un progetto lodevole, ma non so se nelle scuole questo insegnamento avrà successo. E' difficile, ci vuole una certa maturità per riuscirci...se poi
il fund raising serva davvero a quello....mah ormai sono un po' scettica su questi argomenti..... :laughing6:

wow, comically conscious, finalmente un brano oscuro (e adeguato all'occasione). un brano fico tra l'altro.

(hanno inserito dei coretti che sembrano prelevati direttamente da you won't see me, se notate).

Bene, il relativo DVD sarà una delle cose da procurarsi appena possibile.

Da notare che Ringo, dopo aver suonato WALHFMF dal vivo con George Harrison a Londra nel 1987, ha bissato questa volta con Paul McCartney, e scusate se è poco: la canzone è stata eseguita in due occasioni diverse da due differenti accoppiate di ex Beatles.
"E poi anche l'altra volta con George aveva stonato allegramente".

Riguardo a I "Saw Her Standing There": a questo punto avanza nella speciale classifica dei pezzi beatlesiani eseguiti dal vivo dopo lo scioglimento, essendo già stata suonata nel 1974 da John Lennon a New York e ieri sera da Paul e Ringo assieme.

"Cosmically Conscious" balza agli onori della cronaca, da obscure song (cit.) quale è sempre stata considerata.

La cronaca della serata (in inglese) dal solito sito examiner.com..tra l'altro parecchi hanno notato la grande prestazione vocale di McCartney:




At the end of tonight's concert at Radio City Music Hall, Paul performed 3 songs with Ringo:
With A Little Help From My Friends
Cosmically Conscious (!!)
I Saw Her Standing There

Here's a rundown of the complete show. Enjoy!

-Randy

+++++

The entire concert was videotaped and started at 7:35pm.

Angelo Badalamenti (piano)
David Lynch speaks
Bettye Lavette and Moby
Moby (solo)
Bettye Lavette and Moby (again)
Video about TM in schools
David Lynch and Laura Dern (banter)
Sheryl Crow
Sheryl Crow with Ben Harper on slide guitar - My Sweet Lord (dedicated to George)
Russell Simmons (video)
Jerry Seinfeld (10 mins of very funny standup)
Eddie Vedder solo
Eddie Vedder with Ben Harper
Ben Harper and his band, the Relentless7
Eddie Vedder and Ben Harper - Under Pressure
Intermission
Mike Love speaks about going to Rishikesh in '68
Donovan
- Hurdy Gurdy Man (with Ben Harper and Jim James)
- Wear Your Love Like Heaven (with Ben Harper and Jim James)
- Season of the Witch (with Sheryl Crow, Moby, Ben Harper and Jim James)
Donovan talks about George and Rishikesh
Donovan and Paul Horn
Paul Horn solo flute piece - dedicated to George and John
Howard Stern (talks about how Maharishi and TM saved his mother's life, says he's been meditating for over 30 years)

Ringo's 3-song set was performed with Ben Harper and his band, the Relentless 7:
- It Don't Come Easy (with Ben Harper on slide guitar and Eddie Vedder on backing vocals). Ringo is out in front of the band, singing. Wearing black jacket over a black and silver designer t-shirt and black pants.
- Ringo dedicates this song to George "who would have been here tonight"...tells story of how he wrote the song with George, and how George added the lines about Krishna.
- Then Ringo says "We're all meditatin' here tonight. I'm meditatin' right now. I'm gonna do some more meditatin' on me drums." and takes his place behind his drum kit.
- Boys (again with Ben Harper and Eddie Vedder). Ringo introduces this song by saying "I've been doing this song longer than Howard Stern's been meditatin'." He flubs the lyrics a few times...every verse starts with "My girl says when I kiss her lips..."
- Ringo comes back up front for his third and final number: Yellow Submarine (with Sheryl Crow and Eddie Vedder on backing vocals). Entire crowd is on their feet, singing along. Big image of Yellow Submarine (from DVD cover art) on screen behind him.

Much as I love Ringo, his set was pretty sloppy. His voice was rough and off-key in several places (even for Ringo), and he flubbed the lyrics in each of his songs. But he appeared to be having a ball, and so was the audience.

Then David Lynch and Laura Dern vamp for 15 minutes as the roadies busily set up the stage for Paul and his band. Finally, at 10:30pm, Lynch introduces a short video of Beatles footage from '64 (screaming fans, waving to fans) followed by footage of the Beatles in India with Maharishi (all the clips we've seen before). Then Lynch introduces Paul.

Paul and his band (Wix, Rusty, Brian, Abe) deliver a sparkling 45-minute set. Seems like a tune-up for the upcoming Coachella and Vegas shows, complete with the familiar video footage played on the big screen behind them during each song. Paul and his band sound terrific, and the excellent acoustics at Radio City make it even better. Paul looks dapper in black suit with white shirt, playing Hofner bass.

At one point during the set, Paul playfully admonishes a fan in the front row for holding up a sign asking for his guitar pick. "Point taken, you're gonna get the guitar pick, now put the sign away please." (He did end up giving the fan his pick.) Later, he remarks how great it is to be playing a historic venue like Radio City. "I came to the Christmas Show here last year. Very good, highly recommended," he quipped.

Here's Paul set:
Drive My Car
Jet
Got To Get You Into My Life
(moves to piano)
Let It Be
Lady Madonna
(band leaves, Paul alone out front with acoustic)
Blackbird (Paul introduces song with the familiar story of how/why he wrote it, and how far America has come now that Obama is president..."That's change, man.")
Here Today (dedicated to John..."I love New York, and so did John.")
(band returns, Paul back on Hofner)
Band On The Run
Can't Buy Me Love (crowd leaps to their feet)

Then Paul introduces "Billy Shears" and Ringo trots out to sing With A Little Help From My Friends with Paul and his band. Ringo's voice is still a bit rough, but what a treat to see Ringo and Paul up front sharing a mic, singing this song together. Paul harmonizes beautifully throughout: "Do you neeeed anybody?"

To my knowledge, Paul and Ringo have never performed this song live together before.

Ringo joins Paul and his band for a group bow, then Paul and Ringo walk off stage, arm in arm, along with the rest of the band. They come back in a few minutes, along with every performer of the night. Ringo positions himself on his drum kit next to Moby (on percussion) and Abe (on his drum kit).

Then comes the night's biggest surprise. Paul tells everyone that "I wrote this next song in Rishikesh when we were visiting Maharishi," and that Maharishi always used to say "it's such a joy" and "time to get cosmically conscious". And with that, Paul leads the entire all-star ensemble into Cosmically Conscious and invites the crowd to sing along. The first time this song has ever been performed live, and with Ringo on drums no less!

Then comes the final number of the night: I Saw Her Standing There. Again, what a treat to see Ringo up there on the drums behind Paul and the rest of the band.

I believe this concert marks the first time Paul and Ringo performed together on the same stage in NY since 1966. Also think this is the first time Paul played Radio City, although Ringo has played there before with his All Starr Band.

All in all, a fabulous concert. Can't wait for the DVD!

wow che cosa "figa"! Uscirà il DVD?
e, fra l'altro, ho avuto l'impressione che Paul a una certo punto di With a little help avesso l'atteggiamento come di dare "l'imbeccata" a Ringo perchè non sbagliasse gli attacchi delle strofe....ma forse è solo una mia impressione!
Che bello rivederli insieme ma....al tempo stesso quanta malinconia pensando che due di loro non ci sono più.....
