The 74-year-old music legend is about to re-release his 1980s album, Flowers in the Dirt and opens up about his legacy in a brand new interview.

Speaking with the BBC, the star was asked about if he and Lennon wrote The Beatles songs nose to nose, with two acoustics strumming along to each other.

McCartney revealed: “There’s a million ways to write, but the way I always used to write was with John and it would be across from each other, either in a hotel bedroom on the twin beds, with an acoustic guitar and we’re just looking at each other.

“He’d make up something, I’d make up something and we’d just spin off each other.”

he former Beatle continued: “The nice thing for me is seeing John there, him being right-handed, me being left-handed, it felt to me like I was looking in a mirror.

“Obviously, it was very successful. So that was a way I had learned to write and it was the way I liked to write and Elvis [Costello, his new collaborator] was very happy to work like that.

“So it was like a repeat of that process, and so he was John, basically, and I was Paul.”

While the star has also worked with Michael Jackson, Rihanna and Kanye West, no one can top John for him.
