Paul McCartney defied the curse of irrelevance and re-emerged an 80-year-old rebel

Sunday, June 19, 2022

I am suffering terrible Fomo (fear of missing out). This week my “dad rock”-loving daughters will be at Glastonbury, enjoying our greatest living singer-songwriter perform in front of what may be the largest audience in the 50 glorious years of the world’s best music festival. Sir Paul McCartney has turned 80 and it is difficult to overstate his seminal influence and unparalleled status in not only Britain’s, but the world’s pop culture.

Think about it: multiple generations being genuinely excited by the opportunity to share in some of the world’s best-loved songs, performed by an 80-year-old, who has spent the past week in the US, fronting three-hour shows with superstars like Bruce Springsteen thrilled to share a stage with him.
