[pullquote quote="I just hope he likes our little version, a token of my and the band's love for him and his music." credit="Paul Weller"]To honor Paul on his 70th birthday, Paul Weller has released this cover version of the Beatles classic.
“I wanted to do something for Paul’s 70th. The man’s been, and still is, an immense and enduring inspiration for me. It was him and his three friends that made me want to pick up a guitar in the first place,” said Weller. “I saw him play live recently and he inspired me just as much as ever, he was brilliant. I just hope he likes our little version, a token of my and the band’s love for him and his music.”
