Band On The Run


“I think most bands on tour are on the run.”

In 2005, Paul McCartney released his album “Chaos & Creation In The Backyard”, but it was more than 40 years earlier that he released an album that was ALL chaos in the midst of its creation!

  1. No Way! 44 years ago? Eegads. I remember my uncle buying it and playing it on his record player. I loved the cover. Ram I bought myself a few years later in high school. I love the whole album.

    Best wishes, Pete.
