The recent Carpool Karaoke featuring Paul McCartney was a blast. A powerful reminder of the staggering talent of Sir P and the inexorable passing of time. He looks so old; at least, he looks old to someone like myself whose essential image of the man is fixed on the cheekily fresh-faced youngster he was when the Fab Four really were the Fab Four.
But something odd happens in the video in the brilliant sequence when Macca and band are playing in the pub for that lucky, lucky audience. At one point he looks at least forty years younger. And he sounds like he's twenty-five again.
