IUC Exclusive: Paul McCartney says Barenaked Ladies sing Much better than Fab Four; Would Consider Joining Them

Posted on December 13th, 2008 by HisHighness in IUC:Entertainment, IUC:Exclusive, IUC:Music

Paul McCartney was recently asked by a London session musician which bands’ talents he likes in today’s musicland.  “A lot of the bands today are much more technical than we were,” Macca said.  “But the Barenaked Ladies have to be my favorite.  Their harmonies are right on.  They could outsing us any day of the week.  I don’t think John and myself ever had the sort of range they do.”  McCartney added he wouldn’t mind cutting an album with the band.  Maybe BNL’s next song with Paul will be titled “If I had a Billion Dollars” – just like Sir Paul had before gave a good chunk away to Heather Mills.

    He still has a billion dollars. He was said to be worth around 800 million pounds and only(!) gave her about £25 million. Some hookers have all the luck hey?

    This must be a joke or a misquote or something, because I don’t believe it. Paul could sing anything, even goddamn opera if he wanted to. He had tremendous range when he was younger. John too.
