This piece originally ran for a previous birthday celebration on behalf of Sir Paul McCartney, so here it is again for his 77th …
Back in 1967, the Beatles wondered what life would be like “When I’m 64” — and now, that once-distant birthday is a dozen years in the past for Sir Paul McCartney, who celebrates his 77th birthday today.
We don’t need to lay out the reasons why the man affectionately referred to as “Macca” by fans around the world is considered one of the greatest songwriters in history (as part of one of, if not the greatest, musical act ever assembled).
He’s of a special kind of musician, and after the Beatles went their separate ways he forged ahead with a still-active solo career that’s elevated his legend even higher.
McCartney and his band are still quite active on the touring circuit, playing epic two and three-hour concerts each night with set lists of classic songs, fireworks, and more. They’re tireless — and he’s the ringleader, delivering hit after hit to the assembled masses.
To that end, catch McCartney and his impeccable live band on the remaining dates of their Freshen Up tour in the coming months!
