Fan's 50-year-old cake for Paul McCartney

Thursday, June 19, 2014

Well, he's got older but he doesn't seem to be losing his hair, and he's well past the age of 64. While Paul McCartney turns 72 on Wednesday, one fan revealed a piece of cake they kept from the musician's 22nd birthday, which he spent in Sydney. Australia recently celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Beatles' one and only trip Down Under.

The Fab Four stayed for thirteen days spreading mass hysteria across the country, stopping first in Adelaide where more than 300,000 people turned out to greet them. Universal Music Australia have posted a picture on their Facebook page of a piece of cake sitting in some tinfoil alongside some very old looking greaseproof paper sitting in a cake tin. The music label also invited people to share other memoriabilia. "Here's an actual piece of Paul McCartney's 22nd birthday cake, preserved by a fan from his party at The Sheraton, Sydney in 64...can you top this? Share your The Beatles memorabilia with us!" the Facebook post read alongside the photo. The cake should hopefully cheer up McCartney who was recently forced to postpone dates at the start of his US tour and gigs in Japan and Korea after contracting a virus.
