Hey, just wondering if anybody else is having problems with the Song Title Word Association game, or is it just me? When I go to it, the last response I can see says July 10, 2020 at 11:12 PM, but now all the Reply buttons are grayed out, so you can't add anything. Or at least I can't. Did we break it somehow? 😳

I watched the show, also, and was very disappointed. It wasn't what I had expected and was not at all like the other virtual concerts that have been aired recently. There wasn't even a birthday greeting from Sir Paul. The video shown had been aired on YT after the concert last year. It was great seeing them together, but nothing new.

 

It looked like it was all thrown together at the last minute. Some of the videos were poor quality and the spliced together ones were awful.

 

I don't mind that the musicians are having these "concerts" as fundraisers. A few weeks ago, Paul Simon and Edie Brickell, with support from Willie Nelson, hosted A Night for Austin virtual concert that raised $600,000 in support of our local musicians, artists, and food bank. The videos were all good quality, and a lot of the musicians were old timers from 70's Austin. It was a real throw back experience. To the extent that I can, I don't mind supporting our local arts community.

I watched the show. First I have to say

that I’m not enjoying any of these virtual concerts/shows. No way can they capture

the heart of a live show. Although I enjoyed

the clips of the Beatles and some of the

music, it pains me to watch people destroy

a Beatles song. Being brutally honest,

Sheryl Crow can’t even come close to

recapturing the wonder and genius

that is “All you need is love” It was

awful. But what I dislike most of all

is the need to try and extract money

from me for all these charities.
I don’t know if I will even watch

 these types of shows anymore.

I'd like to hear from anyone who watched Ringos' 80th birthday show on AXS.

Personally, I thought it was embarrassing. If that's the best they could do for a legend, why bother.
