“Sitting in the stands of the sports arena, waiting for the show to begin…”
Many people fist heard those words on May 27, 1975 when Paul McCartney’s band “Wings” released their 4th LP “Venus and Mars”.
While Paul and company were recording the record, John Lennon, in a nostalgic mood during his Lost Weekend period, had told May Pang (his then girlfriend) that they would visit the McCartneys during the recording sessions, and considered writing with Paul again. Lennon’s planned visit never happened due to his reunion with Yoko Ono.
Happy 43rd Birthday to “Venus and Mars”!!! How many of you still listen to this record?
