Yes, Paul does have someone who plays bass in his band when Macca is on piano or guitar. It’s Brian Ray, and musicradar.com has a very interesting interview with him covering a variety of topics from the life of a working musician to what it’s like playing with a Beatle.

“What has Paul taught you musically? “That’s a great question. I guess the biggest thing is his philosophy. He always says, ‘You don’t work music, you play music.’ His approach is very playful and almost childlike and naïve. To approach music with as little thought and process as possible, to be very casual about it, is so important. He always has a song in his heart, he’s always whistling something and he’s always inventing.” ”
