White House Feedback

No this has not turned into a political blog. Unless you want to talk about putting Paul McCartney on a postage stamp or outlawing hip hop ring tones. No, the title to this post refers to the video below.  Dave Grohl  doing his best dirty lookin' longhaired Paul McCartney with a performance of Band On the Run at the White House. This is from the recent PBS Special  that nobody saw but everybody talked about.(I posted the vid of Jack White doing Mother Nature's Son a few weeks back). Lets hope for a DVD release. The distortion that kicks out the middle jam around 2 minutes in may have knocked a few of the First Lady's hairs out of place. It may have blown a fuse in the press room, or caused a jolt to knock out a few senatorial pacemakers who knows.  I can't think of any other time when something this loud was played at the WH.

  1. Dude are you kidding me? Why does Dave Grohl get to play with EVERYBODY? Zep, Queen, The Who, McCartney - the PRESIDENT. Fuck all. Great version of the tune. The shots of McCartney are great. That last one where he's looking down? I bet he is thinking "man the last three minutes of this song are one big chorus." And yeah why did I never ever hear of this show until you started posting videos? Amazing.
