Episode 175:Year In Review: 1975 (w/Madinger & Easter)

July 30th, 2022

We are very happy to have two of the best back on this week!

On this week's episode we start a new series called "Year In Review" where we will pick one year in Paul's career and have Chip Madinger and Mark Easter (Eight Arms To Hold You and Lennonology books) join Tom & Andy to discuss and analyse a given year in McCartney's career.

For our first one we chose the epic year of 1975. Wings coming into their most well known era and Paul's at the top of his game. We discuss a 1975 timeline, the formal dissolution of the Beatles, what if John joined Paul in New Orleans, Venus and Mars being recorded and the UK and Australian Tours which took place in September and November of 75.

We enjoyed this and looking forward to doing more.

Have a specific year you'd like to see discussed with Chip and Mark? Let us know in the comments! Tom & Andy Pick up a digital copy of "Eight Arms To Hold You" at www.lennonology.com

Episode 174: ”I’ve Had Enough”

July 23rd, 2022

Ever Experience Macca Burnout?

One infamous YouTuber did and on this week's episode of 2Legs he explains why he jumped off the Paul bandwagon for a while.

YouTuber CanadianStudmuffin aka Larry Graves joins us this week to discuss what turned him off Paul's music and when he jumped back on board. Our discussion also went into rock groups performing live today still, (Andy having seen Jon Anderson of Yes recently) and how the live acts that still carry the banner of a group even tho there may be 1 or none original members still in it.

We thank Larry for his time and congratulate him for being a prolific YouTuber for over 15 years!

Episode 173: ”Paul McCartney at 80” Time Magazine Review (with Glenn Greenberg)

July 16th, 2022

No doubt if you were in stores during the month of June you may have seen the bookazine from TIME titled "Paul McCartney at 80".  

Joining us this week on 2Legs is the writer of the magazine Glenn Greenberg.  Glenn is a free lance writer who previously published magazines on John Lennon and Star Wars.

Glenn gives us an overview of the "bookazine" concept, his career as a writer and journey of fandom and how he came to write a book destined for a wide audience but also have enough substance for the hardcore fan.

Episode 172: ”Reconstructing The Classics”, Volume II (W/ Sam Whiles)

The Frenemy Returns! This week in 2Legs, that other Paul McCartney Podcast, yeah him - none other than Sam Whiles (Paul Or Nothing Podcast) joins Tom and Andy as they reconstruct 3 albums:

Red Rose Speedway

Egypt Station

Back To The Egg

This wasn't too hard for Andy (for one of the albums, can you guess?) How would you or would you even reconstruct any of these albums? and Egypt Station only being 4 years old can rightfully be considered classic? We do! Let us know!

Episode 171: 50th Anniversary of First 3 Wings Singles (1972)

June 25th, 2022

Another 50th Anniversary. God we're all getting old aren't we these days with these anniversaries!

Nonetheless, another Macca milestone in 2022 is celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the First 3 Wings singles which all happened in 1972. We're early with one of them but figured what the heck. This week on 2Legs Andy discuss 'Give Ireland Back To The Irish', 'Mary Had A Little Lamb'/'Little Woman Love' and 'Hi Hi Hi/C Moon'.

Their legacy in the McCartney canon. We also discuss if they would have fared better if they were just released and billed as "Paul McCartney" and not Wings, coming off the heels of Wild Life.

Anyone out there buy these at the time of release? Were you impressed or just meh? Let us know. Till next time! Tom & Andy

Episode 170: Happy 80th Macca! (Ranking The Albums)

June 18th, 2022

80!

On this special day, we finally ranked Paul's albums from least to best. We chose 26 albums. We did not include live, classical, or Firemen albums.

We included Choba BCCP, Run Devil Run and Kisses On The Bottom. This was our longest show yet! At 3 hours it's a marathon but we felt on this occasion it was ok to a bit over the top about our favourite guy!

We are blessed he has continued to make new music and thankful for everything he has given us.

Long Live Paul! Tom & Andy
