Sir Paul McCartney will always put his young daughter before his career.

The Beatles legend wants to make the most of his time with Beatrice - his six-year-old girl from his marriage to Heather Mills - and will fit his work around her.

He said: "I look a lot busier than I am, as I'm actually a rather sporadic, random person and I'll play a few gigs and then disappear for a while. I'm a pretty hands-on dad and make the most of my custody. I take care of my little one whenever I can, and she determines what I can do and where I can do it."

The 67-year-old rocker has insisted he has no plans to go on a long world tour, despite his December concert at London's O2 Arena selling out within four seconds, because he likes to be spontaneous.

He told Live magazine: "That must mean something. It probably means I could play the O2 every week for the rest of my life but I'd rather do things as the fancy takes me. Honestly, there is no master plan. My so-called career is a haphazard thing. I'm just having fun and relieved and happy that other people are still interested."
