It’s a Paul McCartney moment, all over again, and he’s everywhere.
Over 25 million people have viewed Sir Paul and James Corden’s carpool karaoke session (which included their duet of “Baby You Can Drive My Car”) and, just this week, he’s popped up on video, all smiles, as he is literally walking across Abbey Road.
On Sept. 7th, Sir Paul will release “Egypt Station” his first new album in five years, and 10 days later, he kicks off his tour with a Canadian concert.
In Oct., he’s at the Austin City Limits Festival, where (no doubt) he’ll get the crowd on their feet when he launches into “Come On To Me” his rockin’ new single (from the above mentioned album) that’s receiving Top 20 airplay on Adult Alternative stations. It’s lighthearted, fun, upbeat and catchy.
We’ll skip the obvious: that at 76-years old, McCartney, who is four years older than the oldest Boomer, is more than a role model– his creativity, energy, work ethic, social engagement, and his sheer willingness to hang in there, is an inspiration.
