woahhhhh. Looking at McCartney in a whole new light. I never knew he could rock THAT hard. Helter Skelter with Dave Grohl sounds fresh – like it was recorded yesterday. Dunno what he’s doing, but McCartney’s mojo is strong as hell. Would love to see him rock like this more often with the likes of Grohl and others.

McCartney is THE BAWSE.
