Paul McCartney on David Letterman

Our Paul was on David Letterman the other night. The interview was so-so, and Dave wanted to emphasize the fact that they were in 'Ed Sullivan Theater', the same stage where the Beatles made their American debut in 1964. Paul didn't seem too excited which is understandable considering that he already did a MTV special there ages ago, and that I personally doubt that the 2009 interior very much resembles the 1964 version. It probably could've been anywhere as far as he was concerned.

He did two songs outside on the marquee (sort of like the Let it be rooftop gig) with thousands of people watching from the street. He played 'Get Back' and a new one from the Fireman album.

But here's the good part. Check out Letterman's website and you can see him doing more songs: 'Coming Up', 'Band on the Run', 'Let Me Roll It', 'Helter Skelter' and 'Back in the USSR'. And the band, and Paul's voice, sound really great. This website clip is much better than the Letterman appearance.
