Paul McCartney is swapping the bong for a more classy glass of wine!
The Beatles singer has never really been shy on his usage of the ever so popular leafy drug marijuana, but now he's proud to say he doesn't use cannabis anymore — and its all because of the children!

LOLz! No really, the 72-year-old said he put down the bong because he wants to set a good example for his kids and grandchildren!
Paul opened up about his drug usage and said:
"I don't do it any more. Why? The truth is I don't really want to set an example to my kids and grandkids. It's now a parent thing. Back then I was just some guy around London having a ball, and the kids were little so I'd just try and keep it out of their faces."
So, what does the legendary musician do now that he's put away his lighter?
"Instead of smoking a spliff I'll now have a glass of red wine or a nice margarita. The last time I smoked was a long time ago."
Sometimes a nice glass of wine is perfection — and anyway, pouring wine into a glass is a whole lot easier than lighting up a bong, right? LOLz.

The music legend was performing at the O2 Arena in London when the Foo Fighters frontman joined him on stage and grabbed a guitar to join in — and he totally rocked out like a teenager!
This isn't the first time McCartney allowed Grohl to perform this 1963 hit with him. They sang the tune together at the 2009 Grammy Awards!

We always knew The Beatles were way ahead of their time, but this is NUTS!
Kanye West has never been one to shy away from risk when it comes to his music, so when he recruited the virtually unknown British pop star Paul McCartney for his new song All Day, we weren't TOO surprised!
But if you think Macca's contribution was a last minute decision, then you're DEAD wrong! In fact, it looks like he wrote his portion of the song DECADES ago!!
