It's weird, isn't it? Don't get me wrong, I figure McCartney's needed some "rebranding" for some time now. The "cheeky" shots he keeps putting out -- the cover of Driving Rain leaps immediately to mind -- have become somewhat undignified for a legend of a man in his sixties. But what am I to take from that image above?
"Paul McCartney is mad as hell and he's gonna give you a piece of his mind!!"
"Paul McCartney is gonna rock your socks off like they ain't never been rocked off before!!"
"Paul McCartney is quite enthused about his new suspenders!!"
I think it's interesting, anyway. Maybe I'm reading too much into it, but then again, this is the image he and his people are putting out to represent him. Paired with the "Up and Coming" name, is this meant to be some sort of hungry Paul McCartney?
