Paul McCartney ‘tempted’ to produce The Wombats

The Beatle reveals his current favourite bands

Paul McCartney has revealed he would like to produce The Wombats.

Admitting he hasn’t produced much recently, the former Beatle suggested that the fellow Scousers may not want to work with him.

Speaking to BBC 6Music, McCartney said: “I don’t do much production now but it might be very tempting [to work with The Wombats]. I’m not sure they would want me. I had one of the guys from The Wombats in one of my classes. It was great. Now years later they’re doing great.”

The singer also revealed which current bands he rates, saying: “I like Radiohead – they’re really cool. I think they’re on it. Innovative. The Zutons, The Killers, The Wombats. There are a lot of good people around.”

McCartney will play at Liverpool‘s Anfield Stadium on June 1 alongside Kaiser Chiefs and The Zutons – the show is part of the celebrations for the city’s status as European Capital Of Culture.

The former Beatle explained he’ll be performing the big hits, but revealed he’s “got a couple of surprises for Liverpool“.
