while most artists his age have long become stale (what was the last decent album made by the stones?), McCartney still makes great, relevant music.
I agree, along with the late great Bowie and Zappa, a league of his own.

Paul McCartney is amzing!
I love all his solo albums (and of course Beatles-albums)
I saw him live in June, wich was a great performance, even though he is already 73 years old.
My favourite albums are Flaming Pie, Tug Of War and Ram.

A genius with the Beatles, inconsistent as a solo artist. Disappointing.

Paul McCartney, the king of bass guitar. Founding member of The Beatles, frontman in Wings and an impressing solo career.

Best albums (excluding Beatles): Band on the Run, London Town, Driving Rain, Flaming Pie

His musicianship alone gets him so far. He can play so many instruments, knows so much about music, and is very diverse with what he does. I think he is slightly a better musician than John and George. From the Beatles to his solo rock or Wings period to the few albums he tried with electronica/or symphonic music, he was amazing. Plus he wrote Helter Skelter, the hardest rock song of his age, and possibly the first "metal" song ever.
