First time I heard the word "Macca" was on an episode of Absolutely Fabulous. Perhaps I just wasn't paying attention before. Was he Macca in 1964? 1969? After the breakup? Who first started calling him by that nick? Fans? Music critics? Can anyone point to a specific first mention in a written article? Does the name annoy anyone besides me? To me it's like calling Elvis "Pressy" or something.
