This article appeared in today's Sun. Now I know Paul has discussed asking Yoko about doing this for only Yesterday (refer to http://www.macca-central.com/macca-news ... cfm?ID=525
), but to has Paul really done this or is this another example of tabloid journalism ?
So now it's McCartney & Lennon
PAUL McCARTNEY has enraged Beatles fans by altering the songwriting credits on his new CD to give himself prominence over JOHN LENNON.
Macca has stripped off legendary tagline Lennon & McCartney from 22 songs he performs on the Back In The US 2002 disc.
He has replaced it with “composed by Paul McCartney & John Lennon.”
Die-hard fans claim Sir Paul was miffed at being relegated to second place, and say it is a ploy by him to rewrite the history of the Beatles.
One said last night: “He’s never liked the fact that it’s always been Lennon & McCartney and not the other way around.
“To be fair, Paul had the most creative input on all of The Beatles songs he played on his Back In The US tour.
“But the Lennon & McCartney tagline goes back 40 years and in my mind he is attempting to change the most important songwriting legacy of all time.”http://www.thesun.co.uk/article/0,,4-2002521144,00.html
