Cannes Film Festival - AIDS Charity auction (with Ringo)

Ringo and Barbara are seen at the annual Cannes Film Festival in the South of France. They had actually flown into France the previous evening, and had spent the evening at Elton John's hotel. Today Ringo attends the auction in aid of Elizabeth Taylor's AIDS charity, held in the Moulin De Mougins restaurant, where, during the afternoon, he jumps on stage to join Elton John and actress Sharon Stone, when a millionaire in the audience pledges 60,000 if the trio will perform the song "Great Balls Of Fire". With excitement at fever pitch, and with Ringo still perched behind his drums, another well-off member of the gathering offers 90,000 if the trio will perform "Twist And Shout", which they duly oblige. Thankfully television cameras, including Sky News, are there to capture this historic one-off performance and broadcast brief highlights as part of their daily Cannes Film Festival roundup of events.

Paul McCartney: Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

At the Waldorf Astoria hotel in New York City, Paul is inducted at the 14th annual Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame ceremony. Among those in the star-studded gathering this evening are Elton John, Eric Clapton, Led Zeppelin's Jimmy Page, Lou Reed, Bonnie Raitt, Ray Charles, U2 singer Bono, and Julian Lennon. Accepting the award, following an induction speech by Neil Young, Paul remarks: "This is a brilliant night for me but it's sad too. I would have liked my baby to be with me. She wanted this." During his investiture, where he is recognised for his work with The Beatles and as a solo artist, Paul is joined on stage by his daughter Stella, who is wearing a vest adorned by the slogan: "About fucking time!" Paul also remarks: "By the way, while we're here, you've got me, you've got John in this, what about George and Ringo?"
Later, and to the delight of 1,500 guests who had paid $2,000 a head, Paul takes to the stage where, along with the evening's all-star line-up, he performs "Blue Suede Shoes", "What'd I Say" and, as the finale, "Let It Be". Paul had left the stage while Springsteen, Wilson Pickett, The Staple Singers, Mellissa Etheridge, Lauryn Hill and others performed Curtis Mayfield's "People Get Ready". He reappears on stage when he hears the opening chords of "Let It Be", played by Billy Joel, and sings "Let It Be" standing at the microphone backed by a showcase of talent including Bono, Eric Clapton, Robbie Robertson and Joel on piano. (Paul did not bring a guitar with him and, apparently, a member of the Hall Of Fame staff admitted that they "could not find him one!") At the conclusion of "Let It Be", by which time it is now 12:45am, Paul shouts to the audience: "Thank you, it's time to go home. This is a great night, yeah?"
Also inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame this evening is the late Dusty Springfield, Billy Joel, Bruce Springsteen, Curtis Mayfield and The Beatles' producer George Martin, who remarks: "I am very honoured to be placed in a galaxy alongside many of my own heroes." The three-hour television transmission of the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame event begins screenings on VH-1 in America on Wednesday March 17 and is repeated several times. Paul is seen leaving the Waldorf Astoria hotel at approximately 2:30am after attending a private party given by Bruce Springsteen.

Paul McCartney

At the Roseland Ballroom in New York City, Paul holds an invitation only Buddy Holly 'Rock'N'Roller' dance party. Accompanied by his daughter Stella, he arrives at 8:45pm, fifteen minutes later than scheduled, and makes a mad dash out of his limousine and past all the cameras and members of the press. With not one possibility of a picture, the journalists present are naturally angry. Celebrities present include the singers Chubby Checker, Neil Sedaka, Lou Christie and the record producer Tony Visconti and his wife, May Pang. Inside the venue, the crowd is treated to live music and rollerdance, with couples wheeled out to display their expertise on roller skates. Next, the singing star Bobby Vee comes out to delight the crowd, who, following more rollerdance antics, were then treated to a live performance from The Crickets. Paul and Stella spend most of the evening sitting in the balcony, and then, following a screening of a film on Buddy Holly, Paul appears on stage, where, completely unrehearsed, those around bring out to him his Sunburst Les Paul guitar. Paul then joins The Crickets for a version of "Rave On". But, suddenly, halfway through the number, Paul appears to change his mind about appearing and after his lacklustre performance, he promptly returns to his table in the balcony. Carl Perkins' son, Stan, and Bobby Vee, who performs with The Crickets, conclude the evening's entertainment. Also performing tonight is Nanci Griffith. The New York radio station WCBS broadcasts the party, which is attended by 2,000 people. The host for the evening is Cousin Bruce Morrow. Various US TV programmes such as Entertainment Tonight, CNN and Access Hollywood cover the event.


Paul McCartney "PETA's Millenium Concert"

Paul endorses a "Party Of The Century" gala event sponsored by PETA, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. After a video tribute to Linda, accompanied by the moving song "Angel", performed by Sarah McLachlan on piano, Paul returns to the stage in tears and unable to speak. But, he still manages to present the first Linda McCartney Memorial Award, which is dedicated to the fight for animal rights. Its first recipient is the actress Pamela Anderson Lee.
Later, at approximately 12:30am in an adjacent street, accompanied by his regular Run Devil Run band, Paul performs six tracks from the album, namely, "Honey Hush", "Brown Eyed Handsome Man", "No Other Baby", "Try Not To Cry", "Lonesome Town" and "Run Devil Run". Replacing Paul's regular accordion player Chris Hall tonight is Doug Lacy of the Los Angeles band Zydeco Party Band. Also appearing on the bill this night are The B 52's, and Chrissie Hynde of The Pretenders.


Paul McCartney : Later... With Jools Holland

Paul and his regular Run Devil Run band tape an appearance for the BBC2 live late-night music show Later With Jools Holland. Paul opens the programme with "Honey Hush" and goes on to play, alternating between the other acts on the show, "No Other Baby", "Brown Eyed Handsome Man" (joined by Chris Hall on accordion) and, to close the show, "Party", which features piano accompaniment from Jools Holland. An excerpt from the recent Apple promotional film for "Hey Bulldog" is also screened during Paul's interview sequence with the host.


Paul McCartney Run Devil Run Tour

In front of a crowd of just 300, Paul plays his historic concert at the new Cavern Club in Mathew Street, Liverpool. For the 45-minute evening show, which began just after 8pm, Paul's band performed the following songs: "Honey Hush", "Blue Jean Bop", "Brown Eyed Handsome Man", "Fabulous" (with a false start), "What It Is", "Lonesome Town", "Twenty Flight Rock", "No Other Baby", "Try Not To Cry", "Shake A Hand", "All Shook Up", "I Saw Her Standing There" and "Party". Paul left the tiny Cavern stage saying: "See you next time ..." VIPs in attendance include, amongst others, the Apple boss, Neil Aspinall, the old Cavern Club boss, Ray McFall, the old Cavern Club DJ, Billy Butler and Bob Wooler. Paul's immediate family is also present. A large outdoor screen in Chavasse Park, near the Albert Dock, in Liverpool, is erected so approximately 12,000 people can also watch the show live in the freezing cold. Paul had rented the park. After the concert, Paul, his band and friends, go to the nearby Sports Bar, Baron Pierre de Coubertin's, which is owned by Cavern City Tours. While there, Paul signs an authentic copy of his Hofner violin bass guitar, scribbling: "Cool Cavern! Cheers. Paul McCartney Dec 14. '99" on the scratch plate. Paul leaves the Sports Bar through a private corridor, around midnight.

Musicians: Paul McCartney, David Gilmour, Mick Green, Ian Paice, Pete Wingfield, Chris Hall (III).
