Brian Wilson - Stars Line Up For Mccartney Tribute Album

Brian Wilson, Billy Joel and B.B. King are hitting the studio to record Sir Paul Mccartney's greatest hits for a new tribute album.
Willie Nelson, Kiss, Alice Cooper, Jeff Lynne and The Cure will also cover tracks from MCCartney's back catalogue, extending from his time in The Beatles, Wings and his solo career.
The as-yet-untitled collection will be released to coincide with the pop legend's 70th birthday in June (12), and a behind-the-scenes documentary is also being filmed during studio sessions.
Producer Ralph Sall, who is curating the album, tells The Hollywood Reporter that the Beatles icon loves the idea.
He says, "It was important that it be blessed by Paul... You can tell by the variety of participants that Paul's music is truly timeless. Whether you're eight or 80, everyone loves Paul MCCartney."
Wanda Jackson, Steve Miller, Heart, Ronnie Spector and Corinne Bailey Rae have also signed up for the album.
