artofmcartneyThe Art Of McCartney, a soon to be released Paul McCartney tribute featuring some of the world’s biggest music names, is the fruit of a chance meeting between Paul McCartney and music producer Ralph Sall.

After working on a film project with McCartney, Ralph contacted Paul’s London office to pitch an idea which had been fermenting for many years. Besides his film work, Ralph had already overseen a tribute album to the Grateful Dead; but it was his 1993 album, Common Thread: The Songs Of The Eagles – which had sold three million copies and led to the band reforming – that first put Ralph on the McCartney road. A subsequent Doors project, for which the three surviving members provided backing tracks, gave him a clearer framework for this very special celebration of Paul McCartney. The result gathers together a glittering host of Paul’s peers paying tribute to the legendary songwriter on… The Art Of McCartney.

In all, nearly 40 artists have gathered together for this project. Included on the album are; Bob Dylan, Brian Wilson, Barry Gibb, Roger Daltrey, Willie Nelson, Kiss, Alice Cooper and many more superstars. In order to bring some consistency to such disparate contributions, and to fit with the artists’ various other commitments, Ralph Sall used Paul’s touring band wherever possible. Providing this rock-solid musical foundation were guitarists Rusty Anderson and Brian Ray; keyboard player Paul “Wix” Wickens and drummer Abe Laboriel, Jr.

The Art of McCratney will be released in November. For more info on the project, visit
