Happy 70th birthday Paul McCartney plus Weller pays tribute

So The Beatles legend turns 70 years old today and to celebrate, here's the timeless 'Abbey Road' medley from side 2 of the album. Although the 2nd, 3rd and 4th parts of this medley were written by Lennon, most of it was the work of Macca and still remains his finest moment...

Paul Weller is also releasing a new cover of The Beatles' 'Birthday' today to help celebrate the occasion. You can hear this track by scrolling down this page...

The Modfather has recorded a cover of the Fab Four's 1968 track, which served as the opening track on the second disc of 'The White Album'. All the proceeds go to War Child. 

Speaking about the track, Weller said: "It's my own little tribute to the man who, along with the rest of The Beatles, got me into music in the first place."
