The Current DJ Mark Wheat wonders if Paul McCartney is the greatest living songwriter and is looking for your take. Wheat focuses on McCartney (or"Macca", the British nickname for Paul) because of his reach, influence, and coverability. Wheat also cites McCartney's "massive success with Wings" for Macca's "right to the crown without John."

I'm guessing music fans will have something to say about that. Post your comment and weigh in today - Wheat likes to wrap a hot topic up at the end of the week.
