McCartney was backed by his four-piece American grown band. Dour looking lead guitarist Rusty Anderson on the guitar was smokin’hot on the rifs; raggedly cute blonde Brian Ray on guitar and bass guitar is my favorite since he was Etta James’ musical director and guitarist for 14 years (see postscript); Paul Wickens on keyboard, percussions, guitar and harmonica has been a member of McCartney’s touring band since 1989 and bigger than life, cuddly Abe Laboriel, Jr. amused the crowd with his antics as he whipped, beat and thrashed around on drums and percussion.
It was one jammin’ night of rock and roll . . . cool music that brings back so many memories but still lives and breathes for us boomers!
But, those fast cars pale in comparison when it comes to a rocking Drive My Car with a Band on the Run concert complete with an eye popping, ear shattering, fireworks enhanced Live and Let Die.
Taunting “F1 Supremo” Bernie Eccelstone, he suggested, "How about letting the British drivers win this time?" Which they did with Lewis Hamilton’s win!
