LATEST: Veteran rocker Sir Paul McCartney has blamed the press for the furore over his Beatles credit switching idea.

The legendary singer - currently performing the British leg of his BACK IN THE WORLD tour - asked for the familiar John Lennon\PAUL McCARTNEY credit to be switched around on the Fab Four hits he wrote alone.

But Sir Paul is adamant the British press have blown the issue out of proportion.

He says, "There's no tussle at all. I'm really not fussed.

"It's nowhere near as big an issue as it looks. It gets played up in the press. It's a hot little story. And it makes me look stupid."
