The collaboration happened while they were on holiday...

Keith Richards has made the revelation in his new autobiography 'Life'.

The Rolling Stones' guitarist writes:  "He told me that because he was left-handed, he and John could play the guitars like mirrors opposite each other, watching each other's hands. So we started playing like that. We even started composing a song together, a McCartney/Richards number whose lyrics were pinned to the wall for many weeks."

But the track has never been recorded or played live.

Keith Richards is releasing a new compilation of recordings from his solo career, 'Vintage Vinos', on November 2.
