Weller says: "I wanted to do something for Paul's 70th, the
man's been, and still is, an immense and enduring inspiration for
me. It was him and his three friends that made me want to pick up a
guitar in the first place. I saw him play live recently and he
inspired me just as much as ever, he was brilliant. I just hope he
likes our little version, a token of my and the band's love for him
and his music. Rock on Macca."
