I've no idea whether it's right or not, was just something that occurred to me while reading the posts previous to mine. It's so out of character with the rest of Paul's solo career, that it's the only reason that makes obvious sense to me.
Coupled with the legend that says he was notoriously tight fisted in paying his band, maybe this was seen as another way of them earning more money (to keep them placated) without it coming directly out of his own pocket. Can you imagine Rusty or Brian getting their own compositions on a Macca album nowadays, no chance!
