What is Sir Paul McCartney’s secret? How does he stay so solid after 50 years on stage? Being veggie?

He’s currently out criss-crossing the globe on his Out There! World Tour, which has found him playing all kinds of deep cuts, fan favorites, and songs close to his heart.

There are some songs, though, that Macca hasn’t put on his set list yet…and they haven’t been let out of the box in some time.
