Friday, November 13, 2020

The Beatles legend Sir Paul McCartney has admitted he still turns to former bandmate John Lennon for advice when writing new songs, 40 years after he was shot and killed outside his New York apartment.

The 78-year-old described his late friend and Beatles co-founder as 'the best collaborator in the world' and said the anniversary of what would have been his 80th birthday was 'happy sad'.

In an interview with Uncut magazine, he said: 'I'm working on one at the moment that was going one way but I didn't like the lyric. "No, this is not happening, mate."
