Paul McCartney will offer fans "an unprecedented behind-the-scenes look" at his life backstage, at home, and in the studio in his special, Paul McCartney: Something NEW, Thursday, December 5 at 9pm EST n Palladia.  Don Letts (who also made The Clash's Westway to the World) directed.  You can also see the special on VH1 Classic on December 13. Rolling Stone recently named McCartney's latest album NEW the 4th best album of 2013 and with a rumored (but as yet unconfirmed) special Beatles release scheduled for the 50th anniversary of the lads arriving in New York, we can expect Mr. McCartney to be everywhere in 2014.

This winter we're celebrating our own 50th anniversary of McCartney's prized Epiphone Casino, #84075, shipping from the Epiphone/Gibson factory in Kalamazoo, Michigan to London where Macca purchased it in December, 1964 around the time of the release of Beatles for Sale. Look for our in-depth look into the history of the Casino soon.
