McCARTNEY RATED PG

Paul McCartney is looking for some parental guidance. The former Beatle took out newspaper ads Monday ridiculing a “parental guidance” warning that was slapped on his late wife Linda’s new album because there is an obscenity in one song. In the tongue-in-cheek ads headlined, “Parents! We need your guidance,” McCartney calls on parents to listen to the song, “The Light Comes from Within,” and decide “whether your children will be morally corrupted.” The song on Linda McCartney’s posthumously-released album “Wide Prairie” has been banned from TV and radio in Britain, a move Paul McCartney calls the “nannying and playsafe attitude that is infecting the record business.” The song was recorded last March, a month before Linda McCartney died of breast cancer at age 56.
