British music magazine “Uncut” celebrates it’s 300th issue with a tribute to soon to turn 80, Paul McCartney. This issue, dated May 2022 and in UK shops from March 15 is also available to buy online now.
On June 18, Paul McCartney turns 80. To celebrate this landmark birthday, we’ve asked friends, collaborators and admirers – including David Crosby, Elvis Costello, Klaus Voormann, Brian Wilson, Pattie Boyd, Paul Weller, Robert Plant, Pete Townshend, Noel Gallagher, Jeff Lynne, Nigel Godrich, Johnny Marr and Nile Rodgers– to share their most memorable Macca encounters with us. Starting out on a number 80 bus in the mid ’50s, we take in a historic meeting at St Peter’s Church Hall, trips to Hamburg and Rishikesh, margaritas at Cavendish Avenue and picnics in Yorkshire before arriving, some seven decades later, at the premiere for Get Back. Along the way, there is a poem from Donovan, a Polaroid from Lulu, a children’s game called Get The Guest and many, many warm and wonderful stories.
