Paul Turns 65

Today, the great Sir Paul McCartney turns 65. It's great to see Paul back at the top of the charts again, as his latest album, "Memory Almost Full," his 21st solo album (and 30th since he left The Beatles), debuted at number 3 on the Billboard charts on the week of its release. The songs "Ever Present Past" and "Dance Tonight" are an enjoyable listen. It's wonderful to see him with a hit, and its a refreshing change from the slew of no-talent nitwits who are dominating the music scene these days.

Paul's endured some trying times the last year or so, with the messy divorce he's currently going through, so I'm sure it's a welcome relief for him to do what he does best again.

With Paul turning 65, that means that both surviving Beatles have reached senior citizen status, as Ringo Starr will be 67 next month. God, if that doesn't make you feel old...

Happy Birthday, Paul. Keep on rockin'...
