What would you ask Macca about his Fab Four days?

Friday, May 09, 2014

Ever wondered what you should talk about if you bumped into Sir Paul McCartney, doing a spot of supermarket shopping in Heswall maybe? The answer is ... The Beatles. And don’t be shy about it either, because the man himself says he never tires of chatting about his Fab Four days. In fact, he wishes people asked him more! 

Being interviewed for the Kevin and Bean show on Los Angeles’s KROQ radio station, Macca admits fans can be self-conscious and hesitate to ask because they think he’ll be fed up of it by now. “I do enjoy it, it’s like talking about your college days, when you’re not in college anymore and there’s quite a few years gone by,” he says. “I’m looking back on it, it’s like looking at a scrapbook. People think sometimes, I don’t want to bore you, I don’t want to ask you a Beatles question. “I say, ‘No, it’s OK.’ “I could be at a dinner party and everyone is telling their stories, and I’m thinking, it’d be good if they asked me a Beatles question, I’ve got a few stories there.”

Lennon/McCartney Collaborations
All Beatles songs are credited as being written by "Lennon/McCartney. We all know now that probably most of them were written mostly by one or the other of you, especially near the end.

Would you give an example of how the two of you would collaborate, using  a song or two (or more) that most folks would know? That is, the creative process; what you each brought to it and how you'd negotiate what to keep and what to throw out, etc.
