Kaisers hail "influential" McCartney
Kaiser Chiefs have argued that Sir Paul McCartney is one of the most 'influential people alive'.

The Leeds rockers performed with McCartney at the Liverpool Sound Concert at Anfield yesterday.

Speaking about their admiration for the former Beatle, bassist Simon Rix said: "I've said this before that I think Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr are up there, if not the most influential people who are still alive.

"I don't know who is more influential than those two really, because I think that the influence of The Beatles, the impact that they had on everything at the time, not just music, you know your shoes and clothes and your hair and moustaches, everything, furniture - if The Beatles had never happened then we'd be living in a parallel universe."

McCartney was joined by Foo Fighters singer Dave Grohl during Sunday's gig for renditions of 'Band On The Run' and 'Back In The USSR'.
