He is known for his mega hits with The Beatles and has a successful music career of his own.
And fans of Sir Paul McCartney will be able to enjoy the star’s most idiosyncratic move in his music career – as a recording has been released of Macca munching on carrots and celery.
Hitmaker Hey Jude, 79, first recorded the sound 20 years ago for the band Super Furry Animals to use as the backing track for their song Receptacle For The Respectable.

The isolated audio has now been released to celebrate the 20th anniversary edition of the band’s album, Rings Around The World.
A source told The sun: Admittedly, this isn’t Hey Jude.
‘But it can provide a nice background noise for a real Beatles fan. Or a vegan.’
The quirky partnership came about after Macca met the band at an awards ceremony, and after allegedly “playing” celery on Beach Boys’ 1967 song Vegetables, the star agreed to borrow his chewing skills for their song.
Unexpectedly: Sir Paul recorded himself eating some food 20 years ago and gave it to Welsh band Super Furry Animals
Super Furry Animals keyboardist Cian Ciarán said: “He was going to come to the studio and then for some reason decided not to.
“So we sent him stereo backing tracks so he could keep up with the time, and then he sent the band back with a message that started with a really dodgy Welsh accent. Then he says, “I hope you like it” – before you know it you’ll just hear this chewing sound!”
This food-related news comes after it was revealed last month that Sir Paul once treated fans to fish and chips after arriving late to an intimate gig in Liverpool.
The musician whose career spans more than 60 years is said to have offered fans free food and hot drinks after arriving late for a small show at the O2 Academy Liverpool in December 2010 following his then world tour.

According to Liverpool Echo, Paul and his band were hit with delays as they traveled from London for the intimate performance, where 1,200 tickets sold out in just six seconds, and ticketless fans waited outside to catch a glimpse of the star.
Due to the delay and fans queuing in the cold December weather, Paul is said to have treated those outside without tickets and performances to free fish and chips and hot drinks from a nearby burger van.
Meanwhile, the Beatles legend made a cameo in a trailer for Mark Ronson’s new Apple TV+ documentary Watch the Sound, due out July 30, which explores the stories behind music and sound creation.
Mark, 45, posted a clip from the upcoming show on Twitter with the caption: ‘THIS IS ONE OF MY PROUD RESULTS.

“I went to talk to some of the greatest legends and exciting pioneers to find out how they made the sounds and the songs that changed the course of music.
“From McCartney to Charli to Preemo, some of my favorite people here reveal the magic behind the craft. This is such a soulful journey too. I am so excited to share this. #WatchTheSound will premiere on Apple TV+ on July 30.”
In the trailer he sees Mark ask Paul: ‘Where did you taste the seagulls?’ which seemed to refer to the 1966 Beatles hit Tomorrow Never Knows.

To which Paul jokes, “I think it’s me, pure genius Mark,” to which the producer replies: “Pure genius, I meant.”
Another part of the trailer sees Paul in a recording studio with Mark strumming a guitar.
Other musicians featured in the documentary include Andy Taylor of Duran Duran, Dave Grohl of Foo Fighters and Charli XCX – just to name a few.
Paul released his latest album McCartney III in December, having written and recorded it during the lockdown.

In a BBC chat with actor Idris Elba, the crooner admitted he “didn’t realize” what he was creating when he did it.
He said: ‘[In] lockdown everyone cleaned out their closets and did all the things they planned to do. So [making an album] was my equivalent.
“I wasn’t trying to make an album. So suddenly I had these 10 songs, I thought, ‘What am I going to do with this?’ It was just the 10 because I didn’t know I was making an album.’
