Beatles legend Sir Paul McCartney’s lookalike son James was recently spotted with a casual figure as he stepped out in London on Friday to meet a friend for coffee.
James McCartney was spotted on the street
The 45-year-old dressed down in a dark grey denim jacket and carried a guitar case for his low-key outing. James looked happy and relaxed as he headed out before sitting at an outdoor café table where he chatted to a pal.
McCartney, the brother of Mary, 52, and Stella, 50, is the only son of Sir Paul, 79, and his late wife Linda. He has played on some of his father’s albums as well as releasing music of his own. After largely shunning the limelight, even working as a waiter in Brighton, McCartney later followed in his father’s musical footsteps.
His first two-and-a-half years were spent on the road with his parents as they toured with their group Wings. He later played guitar on Sir Paul’s records Flaming Pie and Driving Rain as well as The Light Comes From Within – a track he recorded with his mother before her death from breast cancer in 1998.
He released his debut single Available Light in 2010 before releasing his first album Me in 2013 and his second, The Blackberry Train, in 2016 – both co-produced by his father. He previously said he had aims to be ‘better than the Beatles’.
”When I got to a certain age, I realised that I was somewhat better than other kids at school at guitar and took pride and enjoyment in that,’‘ he told the BBC in 2012.
”I then dreamt of being better than The Beatles. I’m not sure if I can do that. If anything, I would love to be equal to The Beatles – but even that’s quite tough.”
