The rocker added of McCartney, “But I also knew Paul, who is a different kind of personality. I’ve always been friends with him.

“We don’t see each other that much, but we do text each other. We sort of keep in touch. I’ve always got on well with him. Ronnie [Wood] and Paul also see each other quite a lot. So we have a sort of communication.”
