Paul McCartney is alive and well, but a well-placed rumor in 1969 had some thinking otherwise. On September 23, 1969, the Northern Star newspaper of Northern Illinois University published a story claiming that McCartney had been killed in a car crash a few years earlier and had been replaced by a look-alike. A radio station in Detroit picked up on the story and ran with it. Within a month, the story had gone global and Beatles fans worldwide were collectively scratching their heads.
Paul McCartney is set to release 'New,' his first album of original music in six years, on Oct. 15. He's just released the track listing, complete with a breakdown of which producers worked on each of the album's 12 songs.
As we reported back in June, Paul McCartney recorded a track with Italian electronic musician Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo, who works under the name the Bloody Beetroots. The song, 'Out of Sight,' has just been released. You can hear the song below.
He's 71, content and wealthy beyond most people's wildest dreams, but that doesn't mean Paul McCartney is going to slow down any time soon. In a new interview, he says that he isn't going to hang up his rock n' roll shoes.
The last time Paul McCartney released a new song (not counting the two originals that showed up on 2012's standards collection 'Kisses on the Bottom'), he was getting all reflective. Even the title of his last album of all original songs, 'Memory Almost Full,' mused on the passing of time and growing old.
