One Response to “THE MESS:”

    great song. a forgotten macca gem in my humble opinion.

    permit me to relate my “the mess” story.

    Sat 20 March 1993, Paul made an “in store” appearance at a music store (Brashes) in my home town, Sydney. I was lucky enough to meet Paul and get his autograph, one of the thrills of my life. I had a prepared question for him, innocently asking him if one day he might consider playing “The Mess” again, as it was such a great song. At that time Paul did not perform many Wings songs on tour. Paul kinda hesitated, (maybe he thought i was either very cheeky, or he hated the song, or thought i was joking (I was actually very serious). Then he said “well I need to play the songs that are more well known, but one day i might consider doing an “alternative concert”. With that I thanked him, shook his hand, and said, “man, all your songs are amazing, thank you so much for coming to sydney”.

    To my knowledge paul has never revisited the song. The nearest to an “alternative” concert was perhaps his Chaos & Creation show at Abbey Road in 2005.
