Virtually all my life one particular singer, songwriter has had a big impact. That would be Sir Paul McCartney. I spent my youngest years entranced by Beatles songs, ear against the radio's speaker, trying to work out what I was listening to in terms of instruments, and lyrics. I couldn't always make sense of songs like Elenor Rigby but I knew I loved it. As I got older these songs became entwined with my own experiences until, as a bass player, they began to mean even more. How could I not be effected by someone you could sing, write and play so well.
So thank you and happy 70th birthday Paul.
