About

Paul McCartney remembered Prince through two messages posted on Twitter:

Saddened by Prince’s death. Proud to have seen in the New Year with him. He seemed fine and played brilliantly funky music.

God bless this creative giant. Thanks Prince. Love X Paul

On a Twitter Q&A in September 2018, Paul said “Hunt You Down” and “If You Wanna” were inspired by Prince:

You mentioned that Prince inspired the song “Hunt You Down” on the new album. I also recall you saying he inspired the song “If You Wanna” on Flaming Pie. Has Prince inspired other songs and were you a big fan?

I can’t think of other songs he has inspired, but those two definitely. I was always a big fan. I went to see him in concert a few times and wrote to him saying how much I enjoyed his guitar playing particularly. I met him a few times. The last time was a couple of New Year’s ago, when he played a New Year’s gig. I’ve always been a big fan.
