Collaborating with today's hottest artists and getting back to playing gigs, Sir Paul McCartney shows no signs of slowing down at 72.
The British former Beatles musician was in Los Angeles over the Easter weekend with family including daughter Stella and his grandchildren, who also appeared to be in town.
Paul, who is due to release yet more new music this year and will also headline Chicago's popular Lollapalooza in the summer, looked sharp as he dined at Mozza on Sunday night.

The rocker highlighted his slender build with a buttoned-up navy blazer, which he paired with deep blue jeans and stylish shoes.
His hair was long and disheveled with flecks of silver, though the musician appeared to have staved off a full head of grey hair.
Sir Paul graces the cover of music magazine Q this month, looking youthful and commanding as ever with a guitar in hand.

With yet another return to music, the solo artist has celebrated successful collaborations with Kanye West and Rihanna in recent months and also has been rumoured to have plans to work with Ed Sheeran.
Paul spoke out in defense of Kanye in the magazine, saying that he was the type of artist that he admired, because of his 'balls'.
He said: 'Whether you like what Kanye does or you don't, he's an artist and it's his prerogative. His school of thought is that he's reclaimed the 'n' word, he's re-appropriated it.
'I love his balls,' he continued. 'If you're gonna work with Kanye you have to accept who he is.'

The showman has lined up plenty of gigs for the summer, including festivals and touring concerts but says that even after his many years in the industry, he still gets nervous.
Asked how he felt when he tried out new material, Sir Paul said: 'Shy, embarrassed, yes, if it's not finished. The trick is to go off on your own and finish it. Go into the toilet - toilets are good. Separate yourself.'
Paul, who flashed his wedding ring while appearing to fly solo on Saturday, is now happily married to Nancy Shevell and shares his time between London and the US for work.

Though the rocker, who's been married three times, still can't seem to shake off his association with ex-wife Heather Mills, who hinted at her six-year marriage to Paul in a recent interview.
