LONDON (AP) - Calling cigarettes "a curse" on modern life, Paul McCartney banished them from his life over 30 years ago. But that wasn't enough for the international pop music legend: Now he intends to scrap the iconic cover art of The Beatles' 1969 Abbey Road album, which depicts McCartney with cigarette in hand. "Look, ciggies killed me best mates George, Derek Taylor, and countless millions of others," McCartney explained. "I can't change that. But I can alter the past to pretend they never existed. It'll still be the same cover, only with the cigarette Photoshopped out. I'm not going to replace me bare feet with shoes or anything." McCartney went on to explain that this is just the first step in an ambitious program which will see cigarettes digitally removed from all Beatles film footage by CGI. Additionally, he will re-record a single lyric in a Beatles song. "I always thought that '...Found my way upstairs and had a smoke' was a bit iffy, anyways. So I'm going to change that to 'Found my way upstairs and drank a Coke.' Coca-Cola are sponsoring me tour anyways, so that'll make everybody happy."

I remember George saying 'Blimey, he's always talking about “Yesterday”, you'd think he was Beethoven or somebody' - Paul McCartney

Nice try.  I think it's April Fools.

I know smoking is terrible, but back then it just looked sexy.  I know I know, it's awful.  I used to smoke, but..

I think I've made my point.

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

heart Can you tone it down a bit Paul?  Only you can look that suave while wearing a sweater vest!
