Paul McCartney at Amoeba with a Teleprompter?

There's this guy... and he was in this band... this week he played at this record store...

We don't know too much about him, his music, or the "buzz" around him but people were sitting in line for days to check out his gig at the record shop so we figure they'd appreciate this video.

However, at about 2:52 into the video, does it appear to you that in the bottom of the screen there's a computer screen scrolling the lyrics for him during "Hey Jude"? Paul McCartney needs a teleprompter for Beatles songs?
