The 73-year-old musician worked closely with Martin during his time in The Beatles, with the musical director even earning the nickname the 'Fifth Beatle' due to his work with the band.

Following the tragic news that Martin died at home on Tuesday (08Mar16) aged 90, MCCartney penned a lengthy tribute to him on his official website.

"I’m so sad to hear the news of the passing of dear George Martin. I have so many wonderful memories of this great man that will be with me forever," he wrote. "He was a true gentleman and like a second father to me. He guided the career of The Beatles with such skill and good humour that he became a true friend to me and my family. If anyone earned the title of the fifth Beatle it was George. From the day that he gave The Beatles our first recording contract, to the last time I saw him, he was the most generous, intelligent and musical person I’ve ever had the pleasure to know."

The writer passed away on 9 May (15), but his death was only made public last week after Sir Roger Moore paid tribute to him on Twitter.com.

Wood then moved into screenwriting and penned the script for James Bond films The Spy Who Loved Me and Moonraker. He was also the only author to write novels based on his James Bond screenplays with James Bond, The Spy Who Loved Me and James Bond and Moonraker.

However, he admits he has a cheeky tactic to avoid answering any questions he deems inappropriate.

"I'm always surprised by the questions, and sometimes I have to pretend I didn't quite hear some of them," he tells Exeterexpressandecho.co.uk, adding, "If I can't think of an answer I can think up a suitable lie."

The 'Live And Let Die' star - who portrayed the secret spy agent across seven films from 1973 until 1985 - believes the 47-year-old actor makes a ''terrific'' James Bond because he fits the role and has the ability to ''frighten'' viewers.

Sir Roger, 88, said of Daniel while appearing on Britain's 'Loose Women' this morning (19.10.15): ''I think he's terrific, he's a great Bond. He looks like a killer, he really does.''

Sir Roger Moore Thinks Blofeld Could Become A Brit


James Bond Roger Moore Christoph Waltz Daniel Craig

James Bond super-villain Blofeld could return as a British character, Sir Roger Moore has mused.

Ernst Stavro Blofeld - also known as Number 1 - is the German evil genius at the head of the global criminal organisation SPECTRE who was seemingly killed off in 1981's 'For Your Eyes Only'.

Speculation is sky high the criminal mastermind will appear in new Bond film 'SPECTRE' - due the movie's title - and 007 legend Moore thinks if he does return to the franchise his nationality will change because the world is too politically correct to demonise certain nationalities as evil any more.

Madame Tussauds London Brings Together ALL SIX James Bonds In Wax

Principal sculptor Stephen Mansfield is pictured working on the wax figure sculpt of Roger Moore, as Madame Tussauds London announces it will bring together all six Bonds for the first time in October. Moore played Bond seven times beginning with 1973’s Live, Let Die , is portrayed as he appeared in the 1977 movie The Spy Who Loved Me. - Madame Tussauds London today announced it is bringing together wax figures of ALL SIX James Bonds for the very first time this October, with five completely new wax 007s joining the existing figure of Daniel Craig. To coincide with the release of Albert R. Broccoli's EON Productions, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios, and Sony Pictures Entertainment's SPECTRE, the line-up of Connery, Lazenby, Moore, Dalton, Brosnan and Craig will appear at the legendary London attraction for a limited time only, before embarking on a tour of Madame Tussauds' worldwide. This unique experience, created in close collaboration with EON Productions, will give fans an opportunity to stand side by side with all six Bonds - in the same place, at the same time. Guests are invited to see how they measure up to each 007, pose with their favourite and take a stand out profile picture. Each of these new wax figures will be featured in a classic 007 dinner suit, designed by Oscar® winning costume designer Lindy Hemming, based on the original costume. The Madame Tussauds team already had access to measurements of Craig, Connery, Moore, Dalton and Brosnan from previous figures featured at the attraction but needed George Lazenby's to complete the picture. The star of On Her Majesty's Secret Service was happy to oblige and gave the artists a sitting in LA in February. "The kind of information we can gather at a sitting is hugely beneficial, even at a different time period to the figure we are creating," commented Stephen Mansfield, one of the Principle Sculptors on the project. "George was extremely entertaining and generous and we gathered an entire catalogue of measurements, photographs and footage. We are using those along with references from the film to create what we hope will be an authentic and lifelike figure." General Manager of Madame Tussauds London, Edward Fuller, is delighted to be hosting the line up on the first leg of their world tour. He commented, "It's very at Madame Tussauds - London, United Kingdom - Friday 24th July 2015
