Adorable 2 year old on stage with Paul

Here is an article written by Simon Neville about a lucky Paul fan who happens to only be 2 years old who made it onstage with Paul during a recent sound check.

His music has been called timeless, spanning across generations.
And Sir Paul McCartney certainly lived up to his reputation when he invited a two-year-old fan to play alongside him on stage at a recent gig.
The 69-year-old former Beatle spotted two-year-old Ichiro decked out in an impressive replica of the costumes worn by the Fab Four on their iconic Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album cover.
The blue military-style outfit is the same colour worn by Sir Paul on the cover, and little Ichiro finished the look with a replica Hofner bass guitar – similar to the singer’s own guitar.

Sir Paul opted for a more casual look of grey jeans, blue shirt and dark sunglasses, and he struck a pose alongside the two-year-old.
The boy had traveled from Argentina with his Beatles-mad parents to the aging rocker’s latest concert in neighbouring Uruguay, South America.
Security guards spotted Ichiro, and his impressive outfit, during a sound check.
They informed Sir Paul, who insisted on bringing the child on stage for a jam together.
Whether Ichiro knew quite what was happening is unknown, but he attempted to play along on his guitar and pulling rockstar poses.
The pair played a version of The Beatle’s 1969 number one hit, Get Back, in front of Ichiro’s parents.
Father Pablo said: ‘Ichiro was a fan even before he was born.  This was an incredible moment.  No one is bigger than Paul McCartney.’
