Your headline, please.

Last night Bruce Springsteen invited Paul McCartney to join him on stage for his show’s fantastic finale in Hyde Park in London. Despite the enormity of this musical event, representatives from City Council pulled the plug while Bruce, Paul, and the band were still playing because it was getting too late! It’s like a soundman giving Jesus the  “2 more minutes” sign while he’s delivering the Sermon on the Mount.

What’s the appropriate use of a lyric, album title, etc. to create the Daily Mail’s morning  headline for the story? I’m going with ‘Because the Night’ ends at 10:30. Others?

    Speaking of early nights — any RTHers going to Wolftrap for Wilco tomorrow night? They have to be done at 11 p.m. by local rules! I’ll be there — and home by 11:15.

    Does Paul being the only one really in focus mean Paul is dead?

  24. THAT’S a winner, if you ask me!

  25. By the way, is anyone around here a good enough artist to draw a picture of Jesus playing guitar on stage while the soundman, from the back of the room (seen from the back or front, your choice), gives Jesus the “2 more minutes” sign? Seriously, I want that on a t-shirt, a poster, etc. The artist can keep all profits (or split them with chickenfrank); just give me a few freebies and let us stick the RTH logo on the items. Thank you.
