Paul McCartney 9/11 documentary to debut on US TV


Albert Maysles' The Love We Make, which features narration from The Beatles legend, will air on the Showtime network on September.

Paul McCartney was on a grounded plane in New York City on the morning of the 9/11 attacks. The black and white documentary follows his personal journey in the days after the terrorist atrocity his involvement in the Concert For New York City benefit gig.

Recalling his memories of the gig, McCartney said:

"It was an honour to be able to help New York and America at that time in its history. There was a feeling of shock and fear in the air that I thought we could help alleviate with music. And the fact that so many people stepped up to join us made for a very uplifting evening for us all".

Don't expect anything from Paul McCartney

my least favorite Beatle.


Paul McCartney Regrets Hawkish Reaction To 9/11 Song Written for 9/11 First Responders

Paul McCartney regrets that his 2001 song “Freedom,” which was debuted in the wake of 9/11 at The Concert For New York City, went on to inspire the more hawkish members of his audience. The song, which McCartney went on to play at the 2002 Super Bowl pre-game show, as well as the world tour that followed it, was soon retired from his setlists as the Iraq War escalated.

McCartney regrets that the song’s ultimate meaning was lost in the rush to war, with the message resonating with an urge for revenge — rather than justice, telling The Telegraph, “I think it got hijacked a bit, and (turned into something) a bit militaristic. Mine was in the spirit of ‘We Shall Overcome’; you know, ‘fight for your rights,’ in the Civil Rights sense, (it) doesn’t mean ‘Go out and hit people.’ It was a pity: it kind of stopped me doing it, actually.”

McCartney, who witnessed the Twin Tower attacks while in a plane sitting on the tarmac at JFK Airport, quickly scrubbed plans for a concert in Russia, and helped organize the benefit concert at Madison |Square garden for victims and their families — which directly led to a decade of live appearances: “We just thought it didn’t seem appropriate. We just thought, ‘This should be for New York — it should be for the U.S., and for the firefighters, the rescue workers, and the cops — so that became the concert I was gonna do to see if I liked playing to an audience, and I did. So, I did say after that, ‘Well, you know, I think it would be a good idea to get back on tour,’ so that was the concert that got me back on the road.”

A studio-enhanced version of “Freedom” from The Concert For New York City, featuring Eric Clapton on lead guitar, was included as a last-minute addition to McCartney’s critically-panned 2001 Driving Rain album.

Now if John boy was still around

this would be a different story eh? RIP John Lennon, leader of the band, and a generation. Peace.

Lennon would have been a truther

Lennon would have been truther! See USA vs Lennon documentary - its free.

The official John Lennon website indicates that John was assassinated...

We could send him a DVD

Now's the time for all good people to come to the aid of their country.

Somebody please send Paul and Ringo and Eric a copy of the A&E DVD, Blueprint for Truth. There is still time for Sir Paul to get a word of truth added to the upcoming release.

Maybe this would be the start of a new decade of 9/11 Truth tours. Can you imagine GIANT's Stadium filled to capacity blasting the truth on the 10th anniversary? Would you pay $80 to see the "Beatles" play? I am sure Sean Lennon is still around and would see the importance.

50 days and counting.
