Hey, I almost made it through the entire month of August with no posts! I'm not sure, from my readers' perspective, if that's a good thing or a bad thing.

Anyway, I got a call from a friend of mine about a month ago, and he asked me if I'd give a listen to his latest pop music project, titled Five By The Janglemen. It's a five song CD of catchy pop music. Here's the link: Five By The Janglemen. This one brings you to Amazon, but I think it's also available on CD Baby.

It's good, if you like this sort of pop music, and I do.

In other news, I got to see Sir Paul McCartney at Wrigley Field in Chicago. My wife got a couple tickets during the presale on Macca's website, and they were pretty good seats. The show was great. As you might know if you have read this blog for any length of time, I'm a huge Beatles fan, but I came by that fandom from being a fan of McCartney first. The first song I remember loving as a kid was Uncle Albert Admiral Halsey off his Ram LP. And it went from there.

He did the usual fan favorite Beatles tunes (stuff like Let It Be and Hey Jude) and the fan fave Wings and solo stuff (Live and Let Die, Band On The Run, Maybe I'm Amazed) but also did a few more obscure Beatles cuts (I've Got A Feeling, The Night Before) and Wings songs (Junior's Farm, Mrs. Vanderbilt, 1985). He never left the stage for 2 1/2 hours, then did three encores, basically playing for about 3 hours. The sound was pretty good for an outdoor venue, but the weather was obscenely hot. The average age of the crowd was probably right around my age (51), and it was only that low because there were a lot of people who brought their kids or grandkids to see the musical legend. I hope they enjoyed it as much as I did. It's the ultimate Beatles Tribute Band, as well as being a venue to perform his own songs. The backing band (three Americans and British keyboardist/multi-instrumentalist Paul "Wix" Wickens) are incredibly talented musicians and vocalists themselves.

If you want to know if he did a particular song, ask in the comments. I still remember most of them, even though almost a month has passed.
