It's hard to think of a time when Paul McCartney's reputation has been more in need of help. With recent claims that he frequently went into berserko stabbing frenzies all up and down Heather Mills' arm, Paul McCartney needs a friend.

Paul McCartney denies all this of course, but that isn't stopping Rod Stewart from wading in like the opportunistic West End musical-having spiky-haired fool he is. In an interview with Chris Evans, Rod Stewart said:
