Paul Mccartney Blackbird live

Somehow a came across these and I couldn’t help but notice the change in McCartney’s voice as he aged. So smooth when he was young. Still in tune and still the legend but quite different now.



And a sing along with a little background

Interesting. I noticed the difference too, obviously. He is quite a bit older than before of course. When watching the 1974 clip - I thought “what could have been” - if the Beatles had started touring again before their breakup. They might have played that song or Lennon’s Julia - great songs from the White album. And by 1968 there wouldn’t have been screaming teenagers, just hippies enjoying the music.


Who make up a decent portion of his shows today. And it is still a great show.
