Something I have been wondering for a while is the quote from McCartney where he states that Neil/Tim are the greatest songwriters.
Can anyone cite where this comes from as there seems to be no consistency as to its origins.
The other version is that when asked how does it feel to be the greatest songwriter, he replied "I don't know, you would have to ask Neil and Tim Finn.
These types of things have a tendency to turn into Chinese Whispers and become mythologised. Considering a variant of this praise is wheeled out every time Neil does press I thought it would be interesting to bring it up.
