Paul McCartney was in The Beatles, then Wings and finally went on to record and perform as plain ol’ Paul McCartney. Regardless of how you feel about the guy, he is a living legend.
And if you don’t know who he is, then you might be dead. Get that checked out.
But who in the hell is Matt Berry? And what is he doing with McCartney?
Matt Berry is many things: Actor, Comedian, Musician, Englishman. He may be more, but there is only so much awesome you can pack inside one man.
Berry is a familiar face to fans of the BBC and was a
regular on ‘The IT Crowd,’ ‘Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace,’ ‘The Mighty Boosh’ and the funniest damn show to ever air on broadcast television, ‘Snuff Box.’
For music fans, Berry has contributed his pop sensibilities to numerous shows, most notably ‘Snuff Box,’ which features numerous tunes in every episode. Berry wrote the lot of ‘em.
Currently, Berry can be seen in the film ‘Moon,’ which we recently reviewed as a part of our SXSW coverage
I imagine Matt Berry will eventually win over the hearts and minds of all children. Until that happens, he will continue being awesome.
So awesome, in fact, that even Sir Paul McCartney is getting in on the action. He and Berry recorded a song together, ‘Rain Came Down,’ which will be included on Berry’s forthcoming album, ‘Witchazel,’ his follow up to the sublime ‘Opium.’
