Music Soothes The Soul and Paul McCartney

It's been a whirlwind lately playing gig after gig.  In the midst of it all I had the privilege of actually going to a concert to hear someone else play.  Guess who I got to see?  Sir Paul McCartney.

For a Beatles fan like me, this was a thrill.  The tickets were worth every penny.  All I could think throughout the show as that someone forgot to tell this man he's 70.  He looked great!  He even tripped off of the last step from the piano to grab his guitar at one point and popped back up like a dancer.

He is a true showman, and while I will never attain his claim to fame or knighthood, I have patterned myself in my performances a bit after Paul.  He inspired me even more at this concert.

I have taken my Christian Disc Jockey service and expanded it to be a mixture of a live performance with "spinning discs" which are now mostly in digital form anyway.

No, I will never be Paul McCartney.  But, a concert like the one he put on for St. Louis is not one I will ever forget.

It made me think how music soothes an aching soul.  If it is not music that also offers the life of Christ, it may be a bit of a Band Aid repair of the soul.  But, nonetheless, it soothes it if even momentarily.

I'm glad I got the chance to see Paul McCartney live in St. Louis.  And, I can only hope to pull a little of the magic of the musical night to sprinkle into my shows as well.
