Paul McCartney's In-Store Show

There's an article in USA Today about a show Paul McCartney did in a record store. Nothing too surprising. However, I thought the list of celebrity attendees was amusing/interesting. Here's who was there:
  • Michael Eisner
  • Alanis Morissette
  • Joe Walsh
  • Rick Rubin
  • Jeff Lynne
  • Woody Harrelson
  • Jennifer Love Hewitt
  • Cybill Shepherd
  • Twiggy
  • Rosanna Arquette
  • Victoria Tennant
It always breaks my heart to think about Twiggy waiting for Elwood. (My heart breaks for him, not her, of course.)

Screw the guest list I'm trying to figure out what this paragraph means:

"McCartney picked up the mandolin for the third number, bouncy Dance Tonight, then reached back to 1987's All The Best album for C Moon. He explained that the title of the Wings song formed a symbol meant to be the opposite of L7, an old hand signal for "square."

Can you "reach back" to a greatest hits album? C Moon? L7? I'm confused.

L7 forms a square. C Moon is a "C" with a crescent moon facing it, which forms a circle, the opposite of a square. As for going back to the greatest hits record,it was actually the B side to "Hi Hi Hi."

He must have been Hi Hi Hi to come up with that. I actually have the Hi Hi Hi single somewhere. Now I have to go look for it. Thanks a lot.
