British rocker Ricky Wilson was once gifted a signed ukulele by Beatles legend Sir Paul McCartney.

The Kaiser Chiefs frontman was thrilled when the veteran musician gave him the unique present and he had a cabinet specially made so he could show off the instrument in his home.

He tells Absolute Radio DJ Sarah Champion ahead of a special gig for the station at London's Hard Rock Cafe this week (beg12May14), "I was given a ukulele by Paul MCCartney. It says 'To Ricky my dear Paul MCCartney was here'. I keep it on a shelf at home in a specially made case."
