Hope for the Future: Sir Paul McCartney enters the game

Legendary British musician and former Beatle Paul McCartney on creating music for virtual worlds.

Sure, Sir Paul McCartney typically gets killed within the first 40 seconds of video games like Destiny — but that hasn't stopped him from getting in on the fun. 

In an interview from the Best of Q, the former Beatle joins guest host Wab Kinew to discuss Hope for the Future, his first song penned for a video game, and explain what attracted him to the franchise. 

McCartney also reflects on the 34th anniversary of John Lennon's death, and shares memories of his late friend and former bandmate.
