As well as their undeniable influence on the face of western pop music itself over the last fifty years, The Beatles were also innovators in so many other areas of creative life.

The Lennon Inspired Paul McCartney Lyrics

For the best part of his career, Paul McCartney has been rightly celebrated as a wonderful multi-instrumentalist (encompassing bass and electric guitar, keyboards and drums), an implausibly gifted tunesmith, up there with almost any other notable composer of the past 100 years and a force for good across the world, through his music, promotion of vegetarianism and his charitable enterprises.

My Own James Taylor Music Appreciation Society

For these reasons alone, I appreciate James Taylor music so much.
