He was basically doing an autobiography with his music. It was emotional at the time but watching back it hits home that this may well be the last time we get to see the greatest of all time play on the most iconic stage in the world. 

It’s genuinely the best you will ever get on the Pyramid and anyone there is privileged beyond belief, even getting to watch it back home is up there.

Never to be beaten. 

One of the last living musical legends.

It was special. It was definitely a moment, one which will be remembered for Glasto for a long time.

Its all you can ask for, and it's was everything and more.

When he's gone, we will talk amongst ourselves about being fortunate enough to be there 🙂

In all my Macca thoughts since last Saturday, it seems very strange to me that I had more or less forgotten that I have actually shared a radio studio with him! 

Back in the 80s, I worked for the BBC's Russian Service and Macca was (I think) the first guest to participate in a live phone in post-Iron Curtain with the Soviet Union.  Thatcher was the second (I think, it may have been the other way round).  It was very stressful, as it was extremely high profile and the technology was new to us and telephone links to the Soviet Union were shaky to say the least.  Macca didn't stop to socialise afterwards, unlike Maggie who stopped afterwards to knock back whisky with the crew.

And Macca's agent was a complete patronising arse.

Did he finish the call with "honey, disconnect the phone"?

One the best gigs I have ever seen and one of the best moments of my life. Headed right in after Haim and was like 10 rows back, surrounded by a group of friends and cool strangers, drinks flowing and lots of banter between Noel and Paul coming on stage which didn't make the wait feel long. I loved every single minute of the set and couldn't believe the time when it was over. It felt like an 90 minute set. I guess that's what happens when you are lost in the moment, watching one of the greatest songwriters of all time at the best place on earth. I've done every glasto since `09 and the only set that is close is The Stones in `13.

Snap. I’ve been going since 09 and the only 2 times I’ve had that wow what a moment in history feeling was the stones and Sir Paul. Was a privilege and a once in a lifetime moment for me.

Also been going since '09, but not a huge Stones fan.  My 2 mind blowing headline sets were Macca and Stevie Wonder.  Think Macca edges it.

The Stones still just inch it for me, but that's very much a personal preference based on my own tastes and experiences with both acts.

Yep, still team Stones here, I can't see that ever being topped for me personally. Love Macca, love The Beatles, loved the Wings stuff he played, Christ, he brought out Bruce! But I LOOOOOOOOVE The Stones.

I was quite far back so couldn't see everything. Watching back on the iPlayer now, some of the visuals on the screen for Got To Get You Into My Life were straight off of Beatles rock band!

I've spent the last few days editing my group's 10 - 15 second phone camera clips in to the whole bbc set,  really happy with how it has come out. Switch to split screen using the phones audio when one of our clips comes on.

Hey Jude was the toughest, trying to get the right Na Na NA's to line up with was really tough, but think I got there in the end.

Will give it a few months before I watch it all back, but can't wait to see it. I'm usually against filming when I'm there, it's all from my friends and daughters phone but I'm glad they did it. Just the odd 20 seconds here and there but really brings it all back when you watch they pop up on the TV broadcast.

Hey Jude is the best as that's the one with the most clips, I've uploaded that on my GDrive for my friends to access (the whole set came out at about 10 GB!)

I can post the link if anyone is interested

Yeah.  It's a Bowie.

Was it just me or was anyone else surprised to find that Got to Get You Into My Life was a Lennon/McCartney song?  Maybe I knew at one time but I definitely associate it with Earth Wind and Fire now!

He said “we’ve never played this one live” before You Never Give Me Your Money… but they’ve been playing it all tour at least! 
 

Incredible set list, Something was a highlight, plus Golden Slumbers and all the classics of course. Magical.
