Catching up (cont'd)

- At the Grammy's, Paul pumped out a spiritedly faithful version of "I Saw Her Standing There." For obvious reasons, the harmonies were a bit lacking. But to no surprise, Dave Grohl was a fire-starter on drums.

- Alan Livingston, the Capitol Records executive who signed The Beatles, passed away at the ripe age of 91.

- More news about Nowhere Boy, the John Lennon biopic that details his tumultuous upbringing.

- Paul and Ringo performed side-by-side in NYC at a benefit for the David Lynch Foundation. What a joyous sight to see those two in action together.

- Here are some of the goods on Let It Roll: Songs by George Harrison, a career-spanning greatest hits that comes out on June 16th.

- And finally, Paul ignited Coachella with a two-and-a-half hour set. Kudos to Macca for still being so boyishly devoted to rock 'n roll.

End of catching up.

The clip with the Foo Fighters was excellent, despite the poor audio. Was it just me, or did the audience's response seem pretty tepid?
