Rick Keene Music Scene – What Would Happen if We Got Rid of Paul McCartney ?

Paul McCartney is in the news recently calling The Rolling Stones a ‘Blues Cover band’.

Not a very nice thing to say from ‘Sir’ Paul. Especially since you consider The Stones are still together and their song output did not require Kanye West to hit the charts in recent years.

John Oates explains; “Playing the Troubadour in LA has been a “rite of passage” for live musicians for 64 years and Daryl and I played our first show there opening for the late great Harry Chapin in 1973. Over the years I always loved seeing shows and hanging out there with musicians and friends…returning to play again in 2008 was a full circle moment for me and the vibe was amazing.”

Daryl Hall and John Oates remain to be a huge inspiration to some of the world’s most successful contemporary artists, from The xx to Kanye West, who have all sampled hits from the formidable duo. One of the most sampled artists today, their impact can be heard everywhere from boy band harmonies, to neo-soul to rap-rock fusion.
