  1. Hard to believe that it was written by McCartney when he was just 16. It just soooo fit the Peppers feel that you think it’s part of that creative era.

  2. Thanks for catching it Michael and for the video that was new to me. The future is where we’re going but I cherish the memories In My Life!
