Paul McCartney film recalls post-9/11 unity

HollywoodNews.com: Paul McCartney’s “The Love We Make,” debuting tonight (9/10) on Showtime, does more than capture the music icon’s journey of a decade ago — from being grounded on the tarmac on Sept. 11, to spearheading the memorable Concert for New York in Madison Square Garden the next month. It also brings back the feelings of unity and of caring people striving together toward healing that became the best part of those dark days

Directed by the legendary rock documentarian Albert Maysles, the film also includes concert performances and backstage encounters.

McCartney recently recalled that by the time he took to that stage — along with David Bowie, Elton John, Billy Joel, Mick Jagger, Eric Clapton and many others — he could almost feel “We were emerging from the fearfulness of the immediate impact” of the terror attacks. “And now you were seeing the emotion releasing through music, which I always think is a great thing. It’s one of the reasons I love music and I’m in it. You could see, particularly the firefighters and the volunteers and their families, and the victims’ families were able to release this emotion that has been so sort of pent up. It was a really great feeling. We actually felt like we were doing a bit of good.”
