It's been a long, winding road for McCartney impersonator

When Tony Kishman was in his 20s, singing in a Top 40 cover band, he added a Paul McCartney song called Beware My Love to the band's repertoire.The Arizona native didn't think much of it when people started saying he looked like the sweet-faced McCartney when he performed it.In fact, he was so unaware of his vocal and physical resemblance to the British pop giant that in 1977, when the producers of the Broadway tribute show Beatlemania contacted him to audition, he asked, "As who?"He thought they must want him to portray George Harrison. He was a guitarist, not a bassist or pianist. For the audition, he scrambled to learn a few songs on those instruments, but didn't cut his hair into a moptop.

i went to see the guys from beatlemania 2 years ago in Brisbane, they had the Queensland symphony orchestra behind them, it was incredible, and that guy who plays Paul was the best, he was awesome.
