It was 50 years ago that Macca wrote one of his greatest songs but it only seems like Yesterday
Beatles legend Paul McCartney celebrates the 50th anniversary of writing his anthem Yesterday with his first British show for three years on Saturday night.
Macca, 72, is certain to delight 20,000 fans by performing the classic – one of the world’s most loved songs, covered 2,000 times – as the climax to his gig at the O2 in London.
He wrote it after a dream at girlfriend Jane Asher’s home.
Fortunately he changed the name at the very last minute... from Scrambled Eggs.
