Today's Express reports that songwriting credits for Sir Paul's famous Yesterday should be shared with Beatles producer, Sir George Martin. Sir George recalls:
"We didn't know what to do with it. It was such a soppy tune, so I went away and wrote a score for a string quartet to go with it. Two days later I was rehearsing it and Paul McCartney walked in. He'd never seen a score before, and he said: 'It hasn't got my name on it.' So I handed him a pencil and he signed it. He wrote John Lennon's name, too - although he had nothing to do with it - and added Esquire to mine."
