For McCartney Lennon impersonations, look no further than Let Me Roll It .

So Lennon it's hard to believe it's not Lennon.

He also does a pretty good Elvis, and a mean Little Richard.  

It's so Lennon that the same guitar riff actually appears in a Lennon song, "Beef Jerky."

Does anyone remember whatever happened to his aunt Jane ("Aunty Jin," as he called her), the inspiration for his Beatles song "I've Just Seen A Face ," as well as her being namechecked in Wings' 1976 "Let 'em In"? When did she pass away, and at what age?

 

Thank you,

 

Ben (BeatlesWings1981)

Has Paul stopped dying his hair?

I would say no. At least, he was still doing it in 2016.

Paul arriving at a Grammy afterparty on 16 February 2016:

and attending a Stella fashion show on 7 March 2016:

It seems that now it's more just a case of removing the grey and keeping the hair colour more natural, rather than that ridiculous colour he was using when married to that woman.

This is the second picture I've seen this week where it's gray.

But nowhere near as grey as it was on New Year's Eve 2016:

I'd suggest it's just he's not as obsessive as he was about never having a grey hair show.

Mario, Paul's Auntie Gin (Jane McCartney Harris) died in 1987. Paul still seems close to her family - Philip Norman in his biography wrote that Paul escorted Susan, Gin's granddaughter, to the church on her wedding day in September 2000.

Would you say that's a "violent shade" of gray?

I say in speeches that a plausible mission of artists is to make people appreciate being alive at least a little bit. I am then asked if I know of any artists who pulled that off. I reply, 'The Beatles did'.

This may have been asked before but has anyone asked Paul about who sang the ahhhs in A Day In The Life and if they did, what was his response.

If you're reading this, you are looking for something to do.

To be answered after DO's question:

For what reasons did Paul abandon/decide not to release the Return To Pepperland album? And how did it surface onto bootlegs?

Did Paul and/or Linda ever talk about the issue of corporal punishment by parents of their children? More specifically, did Paul and/or Linda ever specifically say "We never hit or spank our children" or otherwise...?

What made him decide to drop the 'James' and just be known as Paul? I thought maybe he just didn't like the name,but he did name his son James,so obviously that's not the case. 

 

Does anyone know if he's ever gone on record about that?

It was because his father was also James, @Father McKenzie. 'Our Kid' was called by his middle name from virtually the beginning to avoid confusion about who Mary was addressing.

James McCartney Senior was known to most as Jim, I believe, but I do recall Paul saying that he had to go by Paul to avoid confusion when the post came round (I'm paraphrasing, I can't remember where/when I read that). I don't know how much mail he got as a kid, but it seems to make sense...

My first name is James, but I go by my middle name. James is actually a really common first name for people who go by their middle name. I have 3 friends named James that are called by their middle name.
