Happy Birthday, Paul



Dear Paul,

I wish you the very best on your 66th birthday. You know the biggest piece of evidence in support of the rumors we talk about here is that it is so hard to believe that one man could produce so much great music in one lifetime. I remember driving in the mountains last summer listening to "Memory Almost Full" and saying to myself, "After all these years, he still does it to me." Watching you playing "Mrs. Vandebilt" for the people of the Ukraine blew me away. I am always trying to anticipate where you will go next, but you continue to be full of surprises and an endless source of fascination. It would be folly to suggest that the most successful musician of all time could possibly be underrated, but I find myself appreciating your music more and more as the years go by. "All My Loving" sounds as fresh today as it did the first time I heard it. "Calico Skies" sends shivers down my spine and causes my eyes to fill up. I could go on and on, but I won't because you will soon be 66 years and one day. Plus, I've got a new Rotten Apple video to watch.

With much love,

Tafultong
