Many, many years ago, James Paul McCartney wrote a song asking if his lover would still be with him when he turned 64. For Paul, that year has come and passed, and today, we celebrate loving Macca in his 70th year. Perhaps the most successful songwriter and musician of all time, McCartney’s catalogue of 50+ years is deep and rich with timeless songs. To celebrate Sir Paul’s 70th year, we’ve collected a number of great artists paying tribute to the Cute Beatle through covers, ranging from his contemporaries (Bob Dylan) to his collaborators (Dave Grohl) and everyone in between.
