I am listening to Sir Paul McCartney playing live here in San Diego. He sold out Petco Park. There are not many artists who can do that these days.
What’s fascinating is the different kinds of people who lined up to get in. Young and old, rich and not so rich, kids with their parents and grandparents, people speaking every language out there. Paul McCartney brings us all together.
His music has a universal appeal. It will never get old. It will continue to be covered by new artists (“Yesterday” is the most covered song ever) and with each new iteration his music and the music of the Beatles will breathe new life into new generations of fans.
This has been a huge event for San Diego. Sir Paul hasn’t been here since 1974 with Wings (my mom and dad were there). The local radio station has been playing McCartney and Beatles music all day in preparation for the big event, rebranding for the day to PaulFM.
Welcome back to San Diego, Sir Paul. Please come back again soon. And thank you for sharing your gift with us.
