Recently, I stumbled upon a YouTube clip of Dave Grohl and Norah Jones singing a duet version of Paul McCartney’s “Maybe I’m Amazed” at the 33rd Annual Kennedy Center Honors, which is a yearly gala held in the luminous Kennedy Center in our nation’s capital. And let me tell you, my friends, this clip is awesome!
Dave Grohl is one fine musician, and I think he does an amazing job of singing and playing guitar in this song, which is certainly not an easy number to perform in front of a packed opera house including the Obamas, Oprah Winfrey, and of course the distinguished songwriter himself, Paul McCartney. The pairing of Mr. Grohl and Ms. Jones is an interesting one, and, though I think she puts forth a pleasant performance, she is by far outshined by the multi-talented, ever-outstanding Grohl.
Dave Grohl, you are definitely amazing.
