it’s the clip….and actually, at 23 minutes, it’s much more than a clip….that everybody is talking about. the new segment of James Corden’s Car Pool Karaoke done with Paul Mac in Liverpool. yes, they sing Penny Lane while driving on Penny Lane. and all kinds of other fun stuff. if you haven’t seen it, just goog it up and enjoy the sentiments. plenty of folks report tears of joy with this one!
and let us note……on June 20th, Paulie turned 76. and he’s still looking and sounding pretty darn good. a testament to his lifelong vegetarianism? and another Rock God who turned 76 on 6-20-18……none other than Brian Wilson. how about that? two of our greatest songwriter/bassists, born on that last day of spring a long time ago.
one more note from another giant of music. Paul Simon: The Life, written by long time L.A. Times critic Robert Hilburn, is now out and available.
