Weller says The Beatles fuelled his life's one and only desire: to be in a band and play music.

‘‘That was it, no other options or thoughts,'' he says. ‘‘Just seeing The Beatles on Top Of The Pops when I was a kid. I don't think you can change the world but The Beatles changed my life, to be honest with ya. I was obsessed with it, and I still am obsessed with it.

‘‘I think it's so rare to have your dream come true, your wishes come true in life. And if they do, you've really gotta' grab hold of it and run with it. I've worked for what I've got and have put the time and dedication into it but I still realise I'm really fortunate to do what I do.''

Weller, the fan, has had a chance to thank one of the architects of his destiny, Paul McCartney. The 50-year-old becomes the awkward teenager when asked if he professed his fandom to The Beatles legend.

‘‘I've met Paul McCartney three times. I was really nervous but I did have a chance to tell him. He was really, really lovely. He told me, ‘Oh yes, it was the same for us when we met Little Richard back in whenever it was, so that was quite cool but he was really sweet, really nice.
I get by with a little help from my friends.

Well that might explain why he literally copy-pasted the bass line of Taxman for his Start! Song.

My boyfriend writes for Spin and just wrote a review of his recent concert in Boston. Unfortunately, he didn't get to interview him, but he did get to meet Paul after the show.
