Last weekend, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr shared the stage for the first time since the George Harrison tribute concert, and for the first time in America since The Beatles last performed here (actually, I seem to remember Ringo joining Paul onstage in the early '90s, but I could be wrong). Supposedly a mind-blowing show. Paul also performed a super-rare song that he's never even properly released.  Plus, Ben Harper, Eddie Vedder, Sheryl Crow and the rest of the performers were great. Everyone from Howard Stern to Papa Bear Bill O'Reilly enjoyed it. A friend of mine was there and said that they shot everything, so here's hoping it will be out on DVD so it can raise more funds for David Lynch 's foundation

Thanks for this great article on the Paul McCartney concert. I was at the concert and it was beyond expectation - simply wonderful. And in support of the great cause to bring Transcendental Meditation to "at-risk" children in schools. I have been doing TM for many years and know first-hand of its great effect in reducing stress. Well done David Lynch, and thanks to all involved.

thanks for your comment, candyshoes. I wish I was at the show, it was a tough ticket to get! I am looking forward to the DVD release. Hopefully it won't be the last time Paul and Ringo share a stage. And obviously a great cause as well.
