The Beatles icon Paul McCartney has uploaded rare video of him performing his infamous song “Nod Your Head” in front of a small crowd including Ringo Starr. The song received heavy criticism from fans when it was released in 2007. Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant made a sad claim about Paul McCartney’s wife earlier this week.
McCartney wrote on Instagram, “#OnThisDay in 2007 Paul played an unannounced gig @amoebahollywood. Listen to newly remixed ‘Nod Your Head’ live from Amoeba on @Spotify now and pre-order your copy of #AmoebaGig at PaulMcCartney.com (link in bio) #PaulMcCartney #ThrowbackThursday #TBT #AmoebaMusic #OTD.”
Paul McCartney also discussed the song in a recent newsletter:
June saw us celebrate the anniversary of one of Paul’s most intimate shows. Paul took Los Angeles by surprise 12 years ago at Hollywood’s famous Amoeba Music and if you weren’t one of the lucky few who happened to be there, you can now listen to the newly remixed live recordings of ‘Drive My Car’, ‘Nod Your Head’ and ‘Calico Skies ahead of Amoeba Gig’s full release on 12th July.
Paul announced this month that Linda McCartney’s album Wide Prairie will be reissued for the first time on vinyl since its original 1998 release on August 2nd. Coinciding with the first UK showing of the Linda McCartney Retrospective, the limited edition colour vinyl LP pressing will be available exclusively for one month prior to the album’s general release at Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum in Glasgow from 5th July.
Following last month’s announcement that the newly remixed Amoeba Gig and remastered Paul Is Live, CHOBA B CCCP and Wings Over America will be back in stores from 12th July, we sat down with Paul to hear the stories behind each of the albums. Paul has already told us all about Wings Over America and CHOBA B CCCP, and this week we got the low down on those ‘Paul Is Dead’ conspiracy theories as he patiently answered our many questions about Paul Is Live. Keep your eyes peeled on PaulMcCartney.com for the Amoeba Gig special next month.
