Like that actually means anything :rolleyes: Or does this mean that s***sburg are better than the wings because they have a sticker higher than the wings? The wings one is bigger anyway :lol:

I downloaded a concert he did in the summer of 2008 in Liverpool I believe & when he sang Yesterday at the end he used an acoustic guitar with a Red Wings emblem on it (shortly after we won the Cup)......I always wondered what that was about & if he actually knows anything about hockey.

I think the Wings logo has nothing to do with hockey and more because he was in a band called Wings.

The boredom is becoming apparent with this topic and continued discussion about Asham.

How many more day until the puck drops?

Anyone download the NHL '11 demo yet?

Just kidding, I'm also bored as is everyone.

Maybe he was playing "While My Guitar Gently Weeps".


it would be a disgrace to that song if mccartney was playing it

Sir Paul could have an Avs and Hawks sticker on his guitar and he'd still be the best.

Pretty lame how they basically forced him into it, though.

Anyone know why the Red Wing is there in the first place?


Before the Friday show, Paul McCartney did an on-air interview with a local Detroit classic rock and roll station, WCSX while traveling to the sound check at the Palace. He talked about the Detroit Red Wings sticker on his Epiphone acoustic guitar. He said he was given the sticker by a fan at the Olympia stadium (the former home of the Detroit Red Wings) on the 1976 Wings Tour.

Not really. It's just what some stars do that makes them think they'll play better if they have that "new guitar feel" depending on their need. It's kind of like how Allen Iverson would change into a new pair of shoes every quarter or something like that.

No no no. Not when it comes to guitars and other musical instruments. You have that one "baby" and you stick with it. And no musician has that many identical guitars.

Epiphone actually markets a Paul McCartney Signature Texan guitar that's identical to his original minus the Red Wings sticker. I have a feeling those guitars are part of a promotional run of the series. They've even got the identical wear and tear on all them.

edit: and no musician has what appears to a bus devoted to carrying one type of instrument.

I never knew he had a Wings sticker on one of his guitars. That's pretty neat.

Looks like a nice gesture since he was in Pittsburgh. Some singers (Shania Twain, Taylor Swift, etc.) wear the jerseys of the hometown team while performing.

dont forget anthrax and megadeth

Brett Hull would also wear 4 pairs of gloves a night - one for the warmup and a different pair for each period.

On the Tripping the Live Fantastic tour he wore a Detroit Lions jersey - don't know if it was just when he played in Detroit or not. People who have more time than me may feel free to search for photographic proof :)
"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk
