It's easy to forget how freaking YOUNG they were when they were crafting this new-fangled sound, writing their own songs when virtually no other bands were, recording without overdubs, playing great live shows without the benefit of any sound monitors ...

Ah, that look on Paul's face...that innocent, cocksure eyebrow. Anyone know what year this is circa (I'm guessing maybe '63?).

In a former life I did a music/text/montage/collage artpiece on Sir Paul, I believe it can still be viewed here.

Excellent video & soundtrack there, Jon. Thanks for the link.

Thanks a bunch, "Who Am Us"! Always nice when I can dig something relevant out of the portfolio...

btw, Talking Heads are in my top 20 too, and I'm getting damn sick of defending them in conversation. Why can't people just put on Fear of Music, admit the genius and be done with it for Pete's sake?

Cool photo. Look's just like one posted on the Waxin' and Milkin' photo blog last November 16.

I've never understood the crush for Paul that the masses had until I saw this photo.

You should run the Kubrick self-portrait with this. Freaky how alike they are.

Never in my life would I have imagined Talking Heads would need defending.

It was taken in '62 and I'm afraid I've never heard of the Waxin' and Milkin blog. It must be a new photo blog on the block.

¿Este es Paul o el Faul?
Yo creo que esta foto está manipulada para que se parezca a Faul
