Paul Mc Cartney about Helter Skelter (remember, the song that gave Charles Manson the urge to go out for a damn' good old-fashioned massacre) :

Quote :
Paul McCartney wanted to write the "loudest, nastiest, sweatiest rock number we could" after reading a Pete Townshend interview describing a Who track (possibly "I Can See For Miles") as "The most raucous rock 'n' roll, the dirtiest thing they'd ever done." This was the result. Some historians of popular music now believe that this song was a key influence on the development of heavy metal.

McCartney told Mojo magazine October 2008: "Just reading those lines (of the Townshend interview) fired my imagination. I thought, Right, they've done what they think was the loudest and dirtiest; we'll do what we think. I went into the studio and told the guys, 'Look, I've got this song but Pete said this and I want to do it even dirtier.' It was a great brief for the engineers, for everyone- just as fuzzy and as dirty and as loud and as filthy as you can get it is where I want to go. I was happy to have Pete's quote to get me there."

The first version was a 27 minute jam that was never released.


shock shock shock

I'll probably dream of that.

(like I dreamed repeatedly of Spanh Dirge, a song which actually was partly inspired by Helter Skelter too)

Pat Benatar too.



Seems like the 27 min jam was actually slower. And when I try to picture Helter Skelter slower, my mind plays something between Sabbath, Cathedral and Kyuss.
