Though we try to refrain from reporting everything Paul McCartney is up to (since that would keep us engaged 24/7), Epiphone fans
will want to check out the new interview in Mojo
where Paul goes into the origins of "Yesterday" (I think without realising it I was singing about my mum…I think the psychiatrist would have a field day with that one
), the Lennon bio film "Nowhere Man" (This is not a life, it’s a film)
and hapless Beatle biographers (There’s only a given body of people who really know inside out what goes on.
Next year is the 50th anniversary of Paul's purchase of his Epiphone Casino
, the only two guitars that he's kept by his side through The Beatles, Wings, solo, and today with his crack band (who have been playing together practically longer than The Beatles did.) It's been too long since fans really listened to a new McCartney song but "New" seems to be hitting its mark. Look for the new album and an interview with McCartney's bassist and Jack Casady
bass devotee Brian Ray next month.
