Beatle stomp

Picture a 76-year-old man, looking 20 years younger on the Jumbotron, leading a sea of humanity in singing, “Na na na nana na na nana na na, hey Jude.” You can't help but wonder if Sir James Paul McCartney CH MBE ever asks himself, “Damn! Did I write that?!”

If he does, he must do that with virtually every song in his set-list. The sheer amount of hits Paul McCartney lobs at you live – “From Me to You,” “Love Me Do,” “Lady Madonna,” “Hey Jude,” “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band,” “Live & Let Die,” “Band on the Run,” “Ob-la-di, Ob-la-da,” “Maybe I'm Amazed,” etc. – is dizzying. You start to wonder if the man's ever written a bad song.

He has, but he’s not playing them!
