“I’m the Only Important One on that Stage.” Updated.

paul-ankaTake a listen to Paul Anka carry on like a lunatic hold a “meeting” with his band.

You can see about half of the meeting here. Nothing makes a musician more upbeat about making music than being harangued with a series of F-bombs and threats of immediate termination. You can see how well it’s working by looking at the faces of the musicians.

He says, “I’m the only important one on that stage” five times (in the full version). I somehow think the band has something to do with the success of his shows, but, hey, that’s just me.

Update: In the comments to this post, Craig pointed me to The (Almost Complete) Paul Anka Integrity Kick at Ace of Spades HQ. Scroll down the right sidebar. Hilarious.
