âI started playing guitar when I was 6 years old and my first influence was The Beatles.
âIn school I was in a band and then we lost our bass player, so I was the lead singer and the bass player then, which is reminiscent of what Paul McCartney was doing.
âPaul McCartney is a living legend.
“He is responsible for changing the sound of popular music with The Beatles and his prolific songwriting talent has blessed us with over 60 years of incredible track.”
