The Hey Jude singer also reflected on what made his song writing partnership with Lennon so special.

McCartney said: “I think what was important wasn't who was more sophisticated than the other or whatever.

“And there maybe is some truth that, musically, I had an edge because my dad had shown us some things. I'd learned the guitar chords a bit before John, but it wasn't so much that, the sophistication, it was attitudes. So my attitude would be, ‘This is what I want to do’. And then John would bring another edge to it.”

They say with marriages opposites attract and I think we weren't like madly opposite, but I had some stuff he didn't have, and he had some stuff I didn't have.
