It took 50 years, but fans will find it well worth the wait. Sir Paul McCartney appears in his first 60 Minutes profile, a report containing surprisingly intimate moments in which he shares rare details from the Beatles years and his subsequent decades as the most successful musician in popular music history. Sharyn Alfonsi's interview with McCartney will be broadcast on the 51st season premiere of 60 Minutes, Sunday, September 30 at 7:30 p.m. ET and 7:00 p.m. PT on CBS.
Alfonsi interviewed McCartney as he prepared to tour for his new album, "Egypt Station." It's also a few weeks away from the 50th anniversary of the band's classic album, "The Beatles," known as "The White Album." The 76-year-old music legend, who is credited with 29 number-one songs, was candid when she asked him if he and John Lennon ever complimented each other on their songwriting skills.
