Fran Healy, whose band Travis made one of the finest albums of the late '90s, The Man Who, recently borrowed the generous services of Macca for his upcoming solo debut, Wreckorder. Let me add that Travis' original name was Glass Onion.
Fran is recording his first solo album, Wreckorder, and persuaded THE BEATLES legend to feature.
He said: "One of the biggest coups was getting Paul McCartney to play bass on a song.
"I'm not sure what non-McCartney tunes he has played bass on but I couldn't think of many. Anyway, his bassline is brilliant."
