Paul McCartney is 74 today. Happy birthday, Paul!
The so-called “Cute Beatle” is having quite a moment recently. He’s just released a new (solo) career-spanning boxed set, “Pure McCartney”; he’s the subject of a new Philip Norman biography, “Paul McCartney: The Biography”; and he’s popped up in everything from a Kanye West song to a Hollywood Vampires cover.
His music, it probably goes without saying (but I’ll say it anyway), has meant a great deal to me.
Here’s one of my favorites. Not a hit in America, but simple, majestic, stirring: a tribute to his talent and prowess.
