"To mean every single note you play"
It's arrogant to say that he sounds like himself, but yet more arrogant to say that he sounds like Paul McCartney...
A whole lot of different music from all over the world - pop, rock, jazz and classical, folk (British Isles, French, Jewish, Russian).
Probably The Beatles, ABBA, Queen, Billy Joel, Andrew Lloyd Webber and Russian singers/songwriters and "official" pop composers are the strongest influences.
Paul McCartney, Billy Joel, Jeff Lynne, Benny Andersson/Bjorn Ulvaeus, Dan Barrel, Per Gessle, Ray Davies, John Deacon, Sting, John Fogerty, Paul Simon, Robby Krieger, Graham Gouldman, David Bowie, A. L. Webber with various lyricists - and on, and on...
