Jammin’ With Sir Paul
During Sir Paul McCartney’s concert in Buenos Aires, Argentina last May 17, 10-year old superfan Leila Lacase was in the audience holding up a sign. Sir Paul invited her up, initially thinking she wanted his signature on the stuffed monkey she brought along with her. But when she came up on stage, she simply said: “I want to play the bass with you.” which ignited laughter from the audience in the La Plata Stadium.
Sir Paul obliged and even added: “You want to play bass with our band, like bass, like this? This could be interesting. OK, I didn’t see this coming.” After the roadie gave her a white bass guitar and draped it over her shoulders, she started plucking along. And with the absolute makings of a future rockstar, she even took the lead vocals after Sir Paul lowered the mic. They both jammed to his hit classic “Get Back.”
Now that, ladies and gentlemen, is how you share the stage with a rock royalty. Needless to say, Sir Paul was very impressed.
