He was the hero of the 60s and 70s as one quarter of The Beatles and Sir Paul McCartney certainly hasn’t slowed down since the demise of the greatest British band of all time.

He said: "I’d seen my grandkids playing them and I would say, ‘give me a go at that’ and I would get killed within the first couple of seconds, hand it back to them and say, ‘Yeah, go on then, ok’."

But Stewart then points out that perhaps, as McCartney has done this song for them, maybe they could provide him with a cheat code that would make him impervious to death.

Stewart said: "Do you play it now and then tell you how to win?"

To which McCartney replied: "Basically no. I walk into the first room in the game and they are just shooting at me, Jon. So I hand the control back."

What he is good at, however, is Rock and Roll and he was inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a solo artist in March 1999, a place that his bandmate Ringo Starr is due to be joining him in soon with McCartney helping him celebrate his achievement in New York.
