Happy Birthday Sir Paul McCartney

Happy Birthday Sir Paul McCartney

Today is Sir Paul McCartney's 70th birthday and to celebrate Paul Weller has released a cover of 'Birthday', originally from the Beatles' White Album.

'The man's been, and still is, an immense and enduring inspiration for me. It was him and his three friends that made me want to pick up a guitar in the first place. I saw him play live recently and he inspired me just as much as ever, he was brilliant. I just hope he likes our little version, a token of my and the band's love for him and his music.' - Paul Weller

Weller's 'Birthday' is available to download on Amazon for today only. Paul McCartney has very kindly contributed to a number of Genesis limited editions, introducing George Martin's sold-out PLAYBACK
and writing the Afterword to HAMBURG DAYS.
