Paul McCartney and Taylor Swift will induct new members into the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame next week, and actor Angela Bassett will do the honors for Tina Turner. McCartney will speak in honor of Foo Fighters. The former Beatle is close with Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl. Swift will speak — and perform — in honor of Carole King. Bassett portrayed Turner in the movie “What’s Love Got to Do With It?” Another actor, Drew Barrymore, is lined up to give the induction speech for the Go-Go’s. Presenters haven’t been announced for Jay-Z or Todd Rundgren.
Paul McCartney provided a breakdown of how he constructed the song "Yesterday," one of his most famous compositions for The Beatles, in an excerpt of his forthcoming memoir published in The Times of London.
The 79-year-old wrote that he woke up one morning in his former girlfriend's home with the melody for the song stuck in his mind, and he immediately turned to the piano in the room to memorize the notes.
"I just had this tune, and I now had some chords. And to solidify it in my memory I blocked it out with some dummy words: 'Scrambled eggs, oh my baby, how I love your legs, scrambled eggs.' Using dummy lyrics wasn't something I did a lot. It was a rare thing," he wrote.

Paul McCartney has shared an excerpt from his forthcoming book The Lyrics: 1956 To The Present, in which he remembers the inspiration for “Eleanor Rigby.”
“Eleanor Rigby is based on an old lady that I got on with very well,” McCartney wrote in a piece published by The New Yorker. “I found out that she lived on her own, so I would go around there and just chat, which is sort of crazy if you think about me being some young Liverpool guy.
“Later, I would offer to go and get her shopping. She’d give me a list and I’d bring the stuff back, and we’d sit in her kitchen. I still vividly remember the kitchen, because she had a little crystal-radio set […] So I would visit, and just hearing her stories enriched my soul and influenced the songs I would later write.”
