The target audience for this series was undoubtedly musicians. Being one myself I very much enjoyed tales of how ideas and special playing techniques were developed. I binged all six episodes in one night and recommended it to other musician friends (most who unfortunately do not have Hulu).On 'McCartney 3 2 1' ..
I watched The Beatles on the Ed Sullivan Show way, way back in the 1960's .. I was a fan from that moment on ..
Slogging thru this documentary was a bit of a chore .. Rick Ruben pandering to Paul constantly, exclaiming how great the bass lines were, etc .. Sir Paul soaking it up and making it appear he was the one and only creative force behind The Beatles ..
I am taking nothing away from Sir Paul or Rick Ruben .. both are great in their own right .. as a musician myself in those long ago days, John, Paul, George and Ringo were an inspiration ..
However, this piece, IMO, came off as just another way for Sir Paul to cement his legacy .. not that he needs to, but his ego is what it is ..
This is the same guy who beefed in the past about credit going to Lennon/McCartney rather than McCartney or McCartney/Lennon on selected songs ..
Maybe I saw things wrong, maybe I didn't .. but, these 6 episodes came off, to me anyway, as a McCartney Infomercial ..
