Paul McCartney Performs on Jimmy Kimmel Live

I was delighted to watch Paul McCartney perform his new single, "New," on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night. He also performed Lady Madonna. After the show ended, I listened to the rest of the live concert being streamed on My Space. Among the songs he performed were Band on the Run, Back in the USSR, and Hey Jude. Paul still has it, he is my favorite musician!

Below are links to the interview and performances from last night's show.

Which song are you most looking forwards to hearing?


Last month, whilst getting ready to go on stage in Regina, Paul was caught on camera performing an impromptu version of 'New'. This quickly turned into an acoustic performance when Paul was joined by the rest of his band for a run-through of the song.

The Attacks on the Obamas

I think some people, both on the left and right, absolutely hate the Obamas. If people want to criticize the President’s policies on drones, Syria, the banking industry, and be prosecutorial about it, be my guest. But the viciousness and vitriol I have seen aimed at this couple since 2008 (sometimes from people calling themselves “Christians” ) is appalling. I am sick of these attacks: calling the president a Muslim when he is clearly a Christian (as though it would be something evil if he was), accusing him of supporting Al-Queda; insisting he wasn’t born in the USA; chastising the first lady for encouraging healthy behavior and eating habits. These kind of attacks only come from one source: the evil one, and hate; and yes, for some people at least, their racist hearts. And don’t you dare call yourself a “Christian” in the same breath around me while saying these things.
