When I went to Eric Clapton’s Crossroads Festival I was extremely shocked when a man in his early 60’s asked me who Keith Richards was. Now imagine my shock when reading these tweets from some Kanye West fans after hearing his collaboration with Paul McCartney. I understand that it’s a different time where kids don’t know what VCRs, cassette tapes or answering machines are, but to not know who one of The Beatles is should be considered a criminal offense for anyone with access to the internet. Too harsh? Anyhow check out some of these tweets and prepare to facepalm.
I don't know who Paul McCartney is, but Kanye is going to give this man a career w/ this new song!!
