Fan Healey, lead singer of the pop group Travis, says that he has received some good song writing tips from Sir Paul McCartney. He met Sir Paul during the taping of a television appearance in the UK. Afterwards, he sent him a copy of their new album The Invisible Band, which was still in production at the time. According to Healey: We sent a copy of the new album to him and we had a phone call that very day. Apparently Paul was sitting in his garden, chilling, and listening to it and he liked it.'' Sir Paul then proceeded to make some suggestions for an unfinished track on the album called Flowers in the Window: "He said: 'That's a great little song.' He helped us finish the ending but we didn't give him a credit on the sleeve.''
