BACKSTAGE FROM THE SQUARE... by Paul McCartney on 20-Oct-01
A big hi to all you little webcasters out there from Madison Sq Garden. We are getting ready for the show
tonight and have just finished our afternoon rehearsal.
Thanks for all your messages it’s a beautiful day here and we’re all excited about tonight. We’ll be
debuting a new song written specially for the event, in which we hope we will be able to get the
audience to participate.
The guys in the band send their best wishes. They are ABE LABORIEL JR on drums, GABE DIXON on
Keyboards and RUSTY ANDERSON on Guitar.
Watch out for the special footage we’ll be sending of yesterdays rehearsals and clips from a couple of
the songs we’ll be doing tonight.
Greetings from all of us here to all you rainy drivers out there. I’ve been asked to say hi juli so HI JULI
and Hi to all our other friends out there in webcast land.
PS Heather says HI too.
And he made available for us fans FIVE videos from the rehearsals! Including the world premiere of his new song FREEDOM (rehearsal):
