Paul McCartney's son records with The Cure
Sir Paul McCartney's son has covered one of his father's tracks with The Cure.
James McCartney plays on a new tribute album which sees artists including Billy Joel and BB King record songs from Paul's post-Beatles solo career and with his band Wings.
Paul reportedly helped arrange for James - who has previously played guitar and drums on some of his solo albums - to record with the 'Friday I'm In Love' rockers for the record.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "James was over the moon at playing with The Cure. He's always been a big fan. They all went into a studio in Sussex and hung out together."
Paul, 68, is said to be pleased The Cure appear on the album, as he has a good relationship with the band's frontman, Robert Smith.
The insider added: "Over the years, Robert Smith and Macca's paths have crossed countless times and he is chuffed having The Cure pay tribute to him."
Other artists who have recorded versions of the 'Band On The Run' singer's work include country singer Garth Brooks, Paul Rodgers and rockers KISS, who take on Wings' 1975 track 'Venus And Mars/Rock Show'.
About their contribution, the band wrote on their facebook page: "We consider it an honour to be asked to participate on a tribute to one of the most influential and greatest singer/songwriters of all time.
"Not to mention, a major force in the most important band of all time, The Beatles. Wow!"Posted on 11 Apr 2011 10:00 to category : Music News
