You know, while watching this 3-disc set of 40 of Paul McCartney's music videos (1970-2005), as well as some live, concert footage - It sure didn't take long for me to realize just how mediocre and easily-forgettable this bloke's music actually is, especially from the latter years of his solo career.
Yes. There are some of McCartney's tunes that I do like quite a lot, such as - Maybe I'm Amazed, and That Would Be Something - But, by seriously judging the contents of these discs - I personally think that this dude's musical creativity had completely dried right up in the decade (1970's) that followed the break-up of The Beatles.
Of course, I know that there are plenty of die-hard McCartney fans out there who would strongly disagree with my evaluation of this guy's songwriting abilities - And, hey! - That;s OK by me.
Born in 1942 - Paul McCartney (who is now 74 years old) has been in the music business for 5+ decades now - And, it certainly looks as though he just might continue to do so for many years to come.
