(Gibson) Paul McCartney has hinted that he wants to collaborate with Gorillaz. It may be a massive surprise to some, but Damon Albarn's Gorillaz collective have recruited Snoop Dogg, Bobby Womack and Lou Reed on previous releases. The live band's most-recent lineup also includes half of The Clash, in Mick Jones and Paul Simonon.
McCartney was speaking to TheQuietus.com to promote reissues of his first two solo albums, and McCartney revealed: "We [Damon and I] have kind of talked - nothing serious, but I like what they do. It's got near a couple of times but we never had the time."
A source close to Gorillaz has now told The Sun newspaper, "Damon originally brought up the idea of doing something with Gorillaz at the Q awards [in 2007] and they have been trying to sort something since. It never worked out on the last album, Plastic Beach, but things are looking good for something in the future." more on this story
