He's a Beatle, for crying out loud. So when Paul McCartney recommends a band, it's like Oprah endorsing a book. What is Sir Paul listening to these days?
"I am very kind of catholic in my tastes with music. I'd say at the moment somebody like Radiohead, I'd put them amongst the top bands. They're fantastic. But I'll also be listening to blues or jazz if it's on the radio. I have a wide range of tastes. I like a lot of rap; I like a lot of mash-ups that they do. I like good music. And it tends to be stuff by people who can play well live."
