Well, he's not 64 yet, but Paul McCartney is moving in on the half-century mark. That happens next year. So, one supposes it's about time for a rock 'n' roller to turn his ear to the quieter strains of classical music.It seems like yesterday that Paul and the other Beatles were the ragged, long-haired hippies wandering amid the orchestra they had hired to play on "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band," encouraging these classically trained musicians to play with cacophony, without regular tempo, before joining for that haunting closing chord of "A Day in the Life."
