Ex-Beatle Writes for Ex-Halo Developers
2012 is going to officially be called Paul McCartney Year here in Britain after his off pitch performance at the Queen's Jubilee and his role in this year's Closing Ceremony for the Olympics. If you cannot get enough of this man on the run, a recent tweet confirms that he is writing some music for the upcoming game by former Halo developers Bungie.

Crikes! Let's hope he is able to write his first decent song since the early 70s.
