Paul McCartney’s Son, 44, Is The SpittingImage of His Famous Dad While Shopping InLondon
No need to ‘work it out’ – it’s obvious who James McCartney’s father is because the man looked like the exact clone of Paul McCartney while out and about in London.
Sir Paul McCartney once sang, “I’ve just seen a face / I can’t forget the time or place,” and that was a feeling many Beatles fans felt when they saw his son, James McCartney, out and about on Monday (Jan. 24). In the photos taken of him, James, 44, was the spitting image of his famous father. He has the same eyes, forehead, and bushy beard as Paul, 79, during the late 1960s. James wasn’t on his way to play the rooftop of the Apple Corps building in Saville Row. Instead, he was doing a bit of shopping in London. James braved the British winter with a giant green puffer jacket but wore black slacks and a pair of open sandals.

The first song that George Harrison wrote for The Beatles was “Don’t Bother Me.” Initially, when George joined the band, he wasn’t a songwriter. He left that duty to John Lennon and Paul McCartney. Since they seemed capable of writing The Beatles’ hits, George didn’t even think about writing songs.
However, George was still curious to see if he could. The result was 1963’s “Don’t Bother Me,” but George was its harshest critic.
“To get it straight, if I hadn’t been with John and Paul I probably wouldn’t have thought about writing a song, at least not until much later,” George explained. “They were writing all these songs, many of which I thought were great. Some were just average, but, obviously, a high percentage were quality material. I thought to myself, ‘If they can do it, I’m going to have a go.'”
So, George set to work writing his first song, although not in the best of circumstances.
They're four of the most famous musicians in history, regarded as one of the most influential bands of all time.
But outside of their careers as rockstars, all four of The Beatles were fathers - with the fab four sharing 11 children between them.
Yesterday, photos went viral showing James McCartney - who is also a musician - looking just like his rocker father Paul.
But what happened to the rest of the Beatles' children?
From household name Stella McCartney - who has designed royal wedding dresses and Olympic outfits - to the lesser known Jason Starkey who has followed in his father Ringo's drummer footsteps, all the the band's offspring have paved their way in creative fields.

On this day in 1958, Paul McCartney and John Lennon performed together for the first time at the Cavern Club in Liverpool.
Billed as The Quarry Men Skiffle Group, the group supported the Merseysippi Jazz Band at the historical venue, which opened its doors just one year prior to the performance and caught the emergence of the Merseybeat scene. The club quickly became world-famous, most notably due to the volume of Beatles performances that took place there between 1961 and 1963, and is now synonymous with the band. McCartney most recently visited the venue in 2018, when he played a surprise show for 250 fans.

SIR PAUL McCartney wrote his famous 1970s protest song Give Ireland Back To The Irish after seeing footage of Bloody Sunday.
The former Beatle was in the US at the time when on January 30, 1972, British Paratroopers opened fire at a civil rights march in Derry killing 14 people dead.
The 79-year-old musician said it was "deeply troubling" to see footage of a perfectly peaceful demonstration go wrong.
The song, which was banned by the BBC, went on to be a number one in the Republic.
Sunday Life reported the details from his new book, The Lyrics, written in collaboration with acclaimed Northern Ireland poet Paul Muldoon.
