    Willful ignorance seems to be the new "cool".

    I agree with this post:

    Kayne is the equivalent of having a perpetual case of flatulence while getting too close to an open flame.

    I remember when one of my grad students, a self-styled Jazz afficianado, came into my office to tell me about this great new bass player she'd discovered: yup, Ray Brown.

    I though he was the guy married to that fat girl who thinks we all want to see her naked.

    As for the OP: he's nobody of consequence; just a has-been from the 60s.

    Well, Sir Paul got a career boast when he did, The Girl Is Mine with Michael Jackson...........right? A little Ebony and Ivory with Stevie Wonder. Might as well do it again with Kanye West!

    Ain't nothing wrong with "selling out"!

    You know, I have strong mixed feelings about McCartney!

    Maybe Kanye is the guy who can finally convince Sir Paul that real bassists don't use picks. :bag:

    Even though Kanye West has done some very interesting work in his surprisingly long career, it is Paul McCartney who is slumming in this collaboration—without question. I just hope the end result is worth everybody's time, especially the public's, because you know they're going to promote the shiggity out of whatever comes from it.

    Youth is definitely wasted on the young.

    He was part of one of the greatest songwriting duos of all time. I like Kanye he's talented and his self promotion techniques help keep him relevant he's a character for sure. Music is generational when I was young most of the kids didn't know who Tommy Dorsey or Duke Ellington were? and at this point in his life Sir Paul can do whatever he likes and when he passes he'll get more coverage than anyone since Elvis.

    I think it's the other way around. McCartney giving Kanye a boost.

    I don't see the problem with it, why not? It's bound to make a lot of money from two demographics and maybe bring them closer together.

    Anyone who doesn't know who McCartney is though, they're just stupid. Outright clueless.

    This Mcarthy fella just might make a career in music if he keeps this up.

    and the best part of his thinking was that he thought Ray Brown is something 'NEW' I bet Mr. Brown would get a kick out of that!

    In my opinion, if you don't know you're better off and are living a good life :)

    Consider yourself 'blessed'.
