PATRICK BULGER | When I’m 64: will you still need me?

On Saturday, God willing, inshallah and ceteris paribus, I’ll be turning 64, a day we all dread because it’s a day-long reminder of everyone’s best least-favourite Beatles song, When I’m 64. John Lennon is said to have griped that he couldn’t understand why someone would write a song like that, though his name appears in the credits with Paul McCartney, who's the sole culprit. It’s an awful milestone. ..
