Paul Weller, The Beatles icon Paul McCartney, Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher, Ocean Colour Scene’s Steve Cradock, Young Disciples’ Carleen Anderson and The Style Council’s Steve White formed The Smokin’ Mojo Filters in 1995 for ‘The Help Album.’ Noel Gallagher Stunned Oasis Fans With 2023 News.
Weller said, “When he did ‘Come Together’ with us we were shitting ourselves, so we recorded the backing track ahead of time: ‘Let’s get this down at least’.
“But when Macca came in he was great. He played some guitar on it and Wurlitzer and he did some BVs with us.”
Weller was very “nervous” to ask McCartney to “do another take – like, with a bit more bass on the guitar,” but that McCartney was “cool about that too.”
“The Macca connection was always important to me. The fact he’s a Gemini, like me, I took as a sign. And he had a chipped tooth, like me. And I thought, ‘That’s another sign.’” Weller made the comments to Mojo.
Paul McCartney has two new releases coming, according to his website:
