DJ CHRIS HOLMES was personally asked to perform ahead of Sir Paul McCartney at the Coachella festival on Friday night (17Apr09) - by the Beatles legend himself.
Holmes met MCCartney at Radiohead's Grammy Awards party in Los Angeles in February (09), and the two hit it off over their fondness for dance music duo Daft Punk.
He says, "The next day he called up (producer) Nigel Godrich and asked if he could get my phone number."
Holmes' 20-minute pre-MACca set featured a selection of soul versions of Beatles songs.
MCCartney opened his set with Wings classic Jet and followed it up with Drive My Car and Only Mama Knows.
