Sir Paul McCartney will write for the first edition of a former regional daily journalist’s new magazine.
The former Beatle is set to pen a ‘Last Word’ feature for Good Taste magazine, which has been created and edited by former Liverpool Echo entertainment writer Jade Wright.
Last year, while still working at the Echo, Jade became the first journalist at the newspaper to carry out a sit-down interview with both McCartney and fellow surviving Beatle Ringo Starr since the Liverpool group’s break-up more than 45 years ago.
She left the Echo earlier this year to found Good Taste, which aims to cover Merseyside’s hospitality sector and will go to print for the first time next month.
Said Jade: “It’s such an honour to have Sir Paul McCartney doing our Last Word feature in the first edition.
“I’ve been lucky enough to interview him a number of times over the years and he’s always been hugely supportive.
“Last time we met I was heavily pregnant with my little girl Beatrice, who shares her name with his daughter, and we had a chat about my plans for the future.
“When I launched the magazine I asked him for some words on Meat Free Monday, not expecting he’d be able to do anything, so when the answer came back I was over the moon.”
