This is a clip from the DVD - Paul McCartney: Chaos And Creation At Abbey Road (2005)

If you get a chance, give it a look. Very cool.

Wikipedia wrote:Chaos and Creation at Abbey Road, recorded on July 28, 2005, was a live concert given by Paul McCartney at Abbey Road Studios, specifically Studio 2, where many of The Beatles' recordings were made.

Chaos and Creation at Abbey Road was meant as a promotion for McCartney's album Chaos and Creation in the Backyard. As the audience was of close friends and selected fans, the concert was intimate in nature and was littered with monologues and song fragments.

McCartney plays left-handed and right-handed guitars, drums, harmonium, double bass, Mellotron, and even wine glasses in a reworking of Wings song "Band on the Run". He also reworks the Beatles' track "Lady Madonna", which he calls "Old Lady in New Clothes", with a much slower tempo and swung melody line.

The bass McCartney uses on his performance of "Heartbreak Hotel" once belonged to Bill Black, Elvis Presley's bass player who died in 1965. His performance of the Lennon/McCartney song "I've Got a Feeling", which originally appeared on The Beatles' 1970 album Let It Be, is notable as he omits the section ("Everybody Had A Hard Year") sung by John Lennon on the original recording. ...

To "B" or not to "B"... that is the question. ;)
