Here is a few choice quotes; (But as I said to them, it’s amazing to me to be singing the songs that a 24-year-old guy wrote. And as I’m singing them, I’m thinking, “He was a pretty good writer. He wasn’t bad. This band was not bad.” So I think I appreciate it almost as if it’s not me. But of course I realise it is me. And I’m very happy with that.)
(But it is with some sort of disbelief and some wonder that I look at that. I often talk about that with mates: “Can you believe I was one of The Beatles, man?”)
(What’s your sporting pedigree like – were you an athletic young man?
In a word, no. I was the kid who would be in the outfield at cricket and the ball would hardly ever come to me, so I just sort of daydreamed. My interests lay in other directions. It was the same for all The Beatles, actually. If there was a big match, we’d kind of watch it – the FA Cup or a big international – but we never kicked a football around or played a game of cricket on the beach.)
The last one is interesting as I thought Paul was a Rugby player in his youth.
