You lot are killing me! Is it wrong that we're fantasizing over a 71 year old man? 

Sorry to keep derailing, back on topic. Stupid question, but I'd want to know how does it feel to be Paul McCartney? Does he wake up every day thinking about how fabulous he is, or does he still feel like a regular man? 

He's a Beatle. And as mentioned a multitude of times on this forum, Beatles are timeless. AND, who are we to question Nancy Shevell's taste and judgement? Case in point:

I think he probably says something like, "Hey, man, where's my toothbrush?" The reasons I think about this: "Smile Away", the interview he did with the Daily Mail about being in the Japanese prison (he mentions getting to clean his teeth twice), and this picture:

LOL, thanks for posting that photo! I'd never seen it before. And I think you're on to something... some reporter wrote a little "spending a day with the Fabs" article back during the Beatles touring days, and said that Paul brushed his teeth like ten times a day.

I think that's a good theory. He had reportedly cut back a lot anyway during the marriage to Mills, who was militantly anti-drug. I would hope too that at least part of his motivation was internal; that his chemistry was changing with age anyway and/or he no longer felt such a need to self-medicate in that way.

I do have a tendency to want to attribute all of his actions to high, right-minded motives. So, I'll just go with you being right on this one.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 I can't remember when or where, probably sometimes '80s, but I remember him talking about how strange it was when one of the kids came home and told him they'd been doing him in History that day.

Can you imagine how that must have been for the teacher?! "I don't care what it says in the book! I've heard that story a thousand times and the book is wrong!"

Awesome! The kid should have asked to be able to skip class because he already knew all the answers. If I had been the kid during class, I would have had to have slid under my desk.

A girl's mind can get off track when you say "doing him in history" and meanmistermustard saying "bag an actual Beatle" over on The "Incredibly Impossible to Derail This Thread" thread. Sorry, I digress...again.a-hard-days-night-paul-7

In an interview recently, Paul mentioned that he likes to pop over to the gym. So, here are some questions I think he would like to be asked:

1. How much can you bench press? 2. How many sit ups can you do? 3. How many chin ups can you do? 4. How many push ups can you do? 5. How many of these things do you expect your woman to be able to do? OK, yeah, maybe he wouldn't like that last question, but you just knew I had to toss it in there.a-hard-days-night-paul-11

Once again, tapping into my memory of old interviews (from the 80s), Paul talked about his daily exercise routine, and said something like "I don't jog in any concerted way, I just like to run up some hills in the morning with my dogs and get the wind up my nose".

Guess that's better than a piano up his nose. What a weird lyric that is.

"Sir Paul, You have graciously indulged us with answers to our questions for 3 pages of this interview. Is there a topic we haven't covered that you would like to talk about?"

Funny Paper, perhaps you/we should have started this conversation with establishing which publication this interview was intended for: The Guardian, Psychology Today, Playgirl or its equivalent UK publication, or a music-only magazine. Ah, but it has been a fun ride.

Haha. Well, it's just a hope on my part. For all we know, he's lying through his teeth and still puffing away of an evening.

I'm laughing out loud over here! Of course, it isn't wrong fantasizing about a 71-yr old man! (giggle) I've been fantasizing about him my whole life. Just for future reference (after he divorces Nancy over the fur coat and cheeseburger I plan to send her), I wonder what it feels like to wake up next to Paul?! (Yummy) I can't imagine she wonders where her toothbrush is! As for the gym...he has to work out...every time I see him hoist that guitar up over his head and hold it there after a 3-hour concert, I am amazed! (I can't do that with my acoustic when I just want to practice!)

Do you reckon Paul knows he's so sexy that he's got all these young women lusting after him? (Ok, I'm not that young, I'm guessing some of you are in your late teens/early twenties?) 

This topic is well and truly derailed! Questions, questions......I'd ask him what he considers his best song writing achievement is. Interesting to know whether he'd choose a Beatles song or one of his solo ones. Also, who are his top 5 recording artists of all time.

"But lots of other women say be my daddy do
Yeah, lots of other women say be my daddy do"

from "No Other Baby" on Run Devil Run. He didn't write the song, but he does a good version of it.

Was thinking about what questions I would never ask him...I want to know, but I'd never ask him....does he color his hair? My friends all say he must, but I prefer to believe it's natural (not that it matters at all). Has he ever had Botox or something like that? Has he ever had any health problems? He's 71. Nobody gets to that age without arthritis or something that a doctor has to treat. I mean he can't be as perfect as I have him built up to be in my mind. What are his pet peeves? (Besides fur coats and cheeseburgers). Just wonderin'.......

Why didn't he write a tribute song for George, is a question I've always thought about.
Granted he appeared to be closer to John but hell if Ringo could throw a song together for George why couldn't Paul?
Even though I still cry whenever I watch him play Something on the uke a-hard-days-night-paul-10

Do you watch Call the Midwife? What thoughts/memories does it bring up of your mum?

Do you have a dog now? What's it like?

What was your reaction when John beat up Bob Wooler at your birthday party?

What was it like being an adoptive parent?

Did you ever have a bad trip?

Was it hard at first to play bass and sing at the same time?

I figure he's noticed. a-hard-days-night-george-10 In fact he talked about it a little bit in a radio interview before the Regina show, how it's kind of odd that he's attracted a lot of younger fans in the past few years, so he's getting screamed at again in concert by "young babes," who he can't look at the same anymore -- he said something about sort of "avoiding eye contact" a bit. I remember there was this adorable story a few years ago when he was single: someone who was backstage at the Grammys said some young starlet brushed by Paul and said "nice ass," whereupon he "blushed right up to the roots." LOL!

I'm sure I have you beat. I'm 45. I wouldn't consider him as a cradle robber to go for someone my age. I should know better than this, but I just can't help crushing on him.

According to acmac's response above, Paul might say that young girls crushing on him is one of his pet peeves.?.? Yikes!

Now there's a thought to contemplate. I need to carve out some time to daydream (about me waking up by him...not you...yeah that would be creepy if I thought about you and him). Hope your daydream of you and him is satisfying.

I wonder if he avoids eye contact because he is genuinely attracted to them, and he is recalling fondly his Beatles days when he had whatever woman he wanted when he wanted them. It might be hard for him to contain himself.?.? Or does he avoid eye contact so he won't seem like he is encouraging them? Or is it just plain old good manners coming into play again because he lives in a society that condemns old men for enjoying young women and he wants to play by society's rules?

1. Paul, exactly what are these seven levels?
2. Paul, could you maybe hurry up with reissues program already? There's this guy named meanmistermustard, see, and he's always...
3. Paul, this movement I need is on my shoulder?? What does that mean?
4. Paul, allowing us to hear "Carnival Of Light" in full would finally convince everyone that you were the true avant-garde artiste in the band! If you can't release it legally, would you consider just leaking it onto youtube someday?
5. Paul, I understand you've given up marijuana to make yourself a better role model for little Beatrice. With that in mind, do you have any just lying around the house that you want to get rid of quickly?? Need anybody to take it off your hands? :)
6. Paul, you know that wordless-vocal bit in "A Day In The Life", that comes right after "Somebody spoke and I went into a dream..." Well, a bunch of us were wondering if you could tell us who
7. Paul, if I'd been out till quarter to three, would you lock the door?
8. Paul, you are a phenomenally popular, powerful and successful entertainer, a brilliant songwriter and composer, excellent singer and instrumentalist, and a handsome face that is known worldwide; whereas I am none of those things. Do you think this is fair?!
9. Paul, do you ever get the urge for a nice steak, maybe with some chips? Or just a ham sandwich or something?
10. Paul, did you hear about that Spanish girl who got Robbie Williams to autograph her butt so she could get it tattooed? And would you mind taking this pen while I just pull down my...HA!! Just kidding.

I just want to play. I’d like to think I could work opposite Sinatra, B.B. King, the Beatles, or a polka band... - Jazz musician Rahsaan Roland Kirk, 1967
