Call For Beatle Paul To Live His Lyric

IW Council member Cllr Lora Peacey-Wilcox is inviting McCartney to live out his vision in the song When I'm Sixty Four by coming to the Island in his 64th year. Cllr Wilcox has picked up the idea first mooted by IW Radio presenter Alex Dyke. "When there was talk about the song at the time of McCartney's recent 64th birthday, I thought it would be great to invite him," Alex said.The IW's place in pop folklore is enshrined because the full set of lyrics from When I'm Sixty Four were the first to be reproduced on an album sleeve, Mr Dyke said.The actual line goes: "Every summer we can rent a cottage in the Isle of Wight, if it's not too dear."Cllr Wilcox hopes her invitation may encourage McCartney to finally live out the song's premise."I know we have missed his actual 64th birthday but he will be 64 all year, so he could come for next year's festival."The invitation will be made through the council's Civic Pride initiative.
