 (From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)  On 15 February 2015, McCartney appeared and performed with Paul Simon for the Saturday Night Live 40th Anniversary Special. McCartney and Simon performed the first verse of “I’ve Just Seen a Face” on acoustic guitars, and McCartney later performed “Maybe I’m Amazed.” McCartney shared lead vocals on the Alice Cooper-led Hollywood Vampires supergroup’s cover of his song “Come and Get It” which appears on their debut album, released 11 September 2015.

On 31 March 2016, McCartney announced the upcoming release, on 10 June, of his career-spanning collection Pure McCartney. The set includes songs from throughout McCartney’s solo career and his work with Wings and the Fireman, and will be available in three different formats (2-CD, 4-CD, 4-LP and Digital). The 4-CD version will include 67 tracks, the majority of which were top 40 hits

In 2017, McCartney will appear in the movie Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.

McCartney’s skill as a bass player has been acknowledged by other bassists, including Sting, Dr. Dre, bassist Mike Elizondo. Best known for primarily using a plectrum or pick, McCartney occasionally plays fingerstyle. He does not use slapping or muting techniques.He was strongly influenced by Motown artists, in particular James Jamerson, who McCartney called a hero for his melodic style. He was also influenced by Brian Wilson, as he commented: “because he went to very unusual places”.Another favourite bassist of his is Stanley Clarke.

During McCartney’s early years with the Beatles, he primarily used a Höfner 500/1 bass, though in 1965, he began sporadically using a Rickenbacker 4001S for recording. While typically using Vox amplifiers, by 1967 he had also begun using a Fender Bassman.
