GUEST,Observer Review: Egypt Station (Paul McCartney) (97* d) RE: Review: Egypt Station (Paul McCartney) 12 Sep 18


To bring us back to the point there is a swaithe of people who list the Beatles, including McCartney as an influence.

Nowhere near as many as list Lonnie Donegan

Whatever you say, that makes him musically important.

You are stating an opinion of yours not a fact. Please do not present it as such.

Without him a lot of artists and bands would not be doing what they are doing today.

Now that does surprise me, as listening to radio during the day I hear very little, in fact nothing at all that could be discernibly linked to any Paul McCartney or any Beatles influence, unless of course they were the unsung "Rapper" heroes of Knotty Ash.

In addition, Yesterday is still the most covered song ever. Pretty important I reckon.

YOU may find that "pretty important" but that is YOUR opinion again. It is however irrelevant. Although as far as covers go it would be interesting to know what would make more, royalties from "Yesterday" or Royalties from "The Wild Rover" or "Whiskey In The Jar".
