McCartney Steals His Own Sound

SIR PAUL McCARTNEY's new album marks a return to his roots - but he makes no apologies for borrowing THE BEATLES style that made him famous.

CHAOS AND CREATION IN THE BACKYARD is already being described as the best of McCartney's 20 post-Beatles albums.

He admits there is a similarity between many of the tracks and those he recorded with the pop legends - but he insists its OK to steal his own sound.

The 62-year-old says, "It's true, some of the songs could have been recorded with The Beatles.

"I have arrived at a point in my life where I can say to myself: 'OK, that's my style. I invented it with The Beatles. A lot of groups refer to that particular sound, so why shouldn't I have the right to do the same thing?'

"I made the decision not to be ashamed of my roots."
