Adam Duritz of the Counting Crows says that the groups new album, Hard Candy, was inspired by a chat he had with Sir Paul:"I'd had this conversation with Paul McCartney a couple of years ago at the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, and I just left the conversation thinking, 'Man, what a treasure the guy is,' and so underrated, I think, and under appreciated at times. To, like, write a melody that sticks in someone's head for 40 years -- I mean, how the hell do people do that? I thought, 'Well, I want to really concentrate on that for this record. Every song has to have a great melody. That's the starting point'."
