The incomparable Paul McCartney celebrates his 75th birthday today (June 18.) The entire musical landscape wouldn’t be the same without him, so considering that we think all music lovers should find a way to celebrate him today. Here are five suggestions:
1. Don’t eat meat.
Sir Paul has been a vegan and animal rights activist for decades. We couldn’t think of a more thoughtful way to honor his non-musical legacy.
2. Play a game of Beatles Monopoly
If you don’t own it, you can buy it through the link below!
The Beatles Collector's Edition of the Monopoly game provides Beatlemaniacs and music fans the opportunity to create their own private anthology of music by collecting Beatles albums including Abbey Road, Rubber Soul and Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.
3. Do a “Beatles Marathon.”
What a “Beatles Marathon,” you ask? Taking a cue from Jack Black and his “Led Zeppelin Marathon,” it’s where you listen to an entire band’s catalog in one sitting. Challenging? Maybe, but we think you’re up for it!
4. Paint a picture
Did you know Macca also likes to dabble in painting? You can view a number of his paintings at PaulMcCartney.com!
5. Do it in a road
Recorded 9th - 10th October 1968 at Abbey Road Studios and featured on the album "The Beatles" - commonly known as the White Album.
