McCartney Would Have Downloaded Elvis

The Dutch news show 'Nova' broadcasted a remarkable interview with Paul McCartney yesterday. The former Beatle had no problem that he would've downloaded Elvis music had internet been available 40, 50 years ago. "Maybe I would've used free downloads, if they were available." Also on bootlegs, Macca had his own view: "They don't bother me much. I think it's rather interesting, they're more like a tribute rather than something else."

Yes, jpf........I so agree with you. I have tried to contact Paul as well about the original base of Bill Black's that his children would love to see and have returned. Come on, Paul, you can afford it.

Of course downloading music is great, but the quality is not as good as CD. To get the best audio you need to buy the CD. (Unless BMG have used an inferior master!) Surely that would never happen?!

Dear CEP, should you really be telling the world that you're a 43 year old stupid twat? It doesn't makle you a bad person.

I would like to ask Sir Paul if he would be kind enough to let Nancy and Louis Black have sight of their daddy's double bass, something they really want to do but cannot get a reply to their letters!

hey there Harvey Alexander i am a 43 year old stupid twat! Having my whole Elvis collection on my ipod and being able to easily access every single song and version no matter where i am in the world is fantastic - you are obviously still playing your old 78s - I bet somewhere the Big E is downloading to his hearts content -he would have loved it!

I have great respect for Sir Paul McCartney, but how would he have felt if people were downloading the Beatles music instead of buying the albums. Bet he wouldn't have liked it. I personally love CD clutter. I personally do not like taking my expensive cds out the door, which is why I have an I-Pod which does not translate into downloads except off of my cds. It's great being able to download my latest cd to my I-pod and walk out the door with it. Free downloads don't do anyone a favor.

Downloading is killing real music and real music sales. Anyone who does it is a stupid twat. And that includes Sir Paul McCarthy.

I think it's great to finally hear this from an artist. I too think that the bootlegs are interesting and don't bother the regular record/cd sales. Artists make enough money. I just don't like the many lousy bootleggers in the Elvis world, who get/steal stuff for free and then release it for a lot of money. I mean if you made your own recording, it's fine and you can sell it. I also think that if you download music, and you like it a lot, you might just buy the whole record. So it may also help record sales. In the old days we sat by the radio and waited for the song to come on and record it on tape.
