Happy Birthday Paul McCartney! The Forever Beatle Turns 72


Paul McCartney is 72 today. Happy Birthday Paul! The forever Beatle is recovering in New York after a nasty viral infection cut short his tour in Japan. But really, what 72 year old continues to carry his own rock show solo? Crazy. But Paul loves it, and has endless energy on stage, as if he were 42! Paul picks up his tour in Albany, New York on July 5th. With or without John Lennon, Paul is the most successful songwriter in history. Let’s hope he has a nice vegetarian meal today, capped off with some good Champagne. He deserves it!
