His first personal message posted there reads:
As of 20:15 CEST, backstage video footage of the Howard Stern Show is being available.
Greetings to all you webcasters from the beautiful city of New York. We have started the build up to Saturday nights concert for New York in aid of the fire fighters and police dept and we are gonna be sending some pictures to you over the web real soon.
I started my day under a bright blue sky at Howard Stern’s radio show and I I’ll send you my greetings from there later. I met up with Ozzy Osborne for the first time and you can see a little of that.
We’ll also be sending you some street scenes as the excitement starts to build. I’m off now to rehearsals with the guys who played on “Driving Rain”, my new album released in November, so goodbye for now, keep tuned in for more fun from the big apple
All the best Paul
Sir Paul will also give his fans an opportunity to listen to two new songs from his upcoming release Driving Rain - "From A Lover To Friend" and "Lonely Road", a song he recorded in his hotel room in Goa.
According to Dave Fester, general manager of the Windows Digital Media Division at Microsoft: "This rare glimpse into Paul McCartney's preparations for a major concert is a special event for his fans around the world. Our hope is that this online special helps to make the concert a success in benefiting victims of the recent tragedy in New York."
