McCartney Stole Song?
Day in Rock reports: Does Paul McCartney owe Curtis Mayfield's estate some royalties? The intro and 1st verse of the song "Anyway" from McCartney's latest album Chaos And Creation In The Back Yard sounds strikingly familiar to the Jeff Beck / Rod Stewart arrangement of Mayfield's "People Get Ready". While many astute reviewers picked up on this "borrowing" when reviewing the album when it was released last year, we have learned that McCartney is definitely familiar with the song. In March 99 when McCartney was inducted into the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame as a solo artist (along with Mayfield), McCartney participated in an all-star jam with Bono, Bruce Springsteen and Billy Joel and yes one of the four songs they performed was "People Get Ready," according to SpringsteenLyrics.com [see the full story link to read their account of that performance]- Click Here for the Full Story
