What type of mattress do you prefer? What type of pillow?

Paul, when you listen to one of your albums, do you skip any songs? If you say "yes" trcanberra might get a tad miffed, but he's cool if others besides him skip songs. So it is ok to let us know if you do.

Oh, yeah, do you have a preference among formats: vinyl, cd, or mp3? Please elaborate.

On that topic.

Paul, is there any song of yours you look back on and think "dear God, what the hell is that? That sucks big time".

Is it ok if i ever get a time machine to go back to the With The Beatles Hold Me Tight sessions and sabotage it cause the song sucks like no other Beatles song – and then spin forward to the Rod Rose Speedway Hold Me Tight recording and sabotage that as well? How on earth did you manage to write two completely different songs under the same title and which both are unlistenable crap, cause that is one hell of an achievement? "What do you mean i "have to leave now, the interview is over"!? Ok, ok, i'm going. Geez man. Get off me. I can make my own way out. Thank you."

I can't find it now, but I've definitely read a quote by Paul saying that he thinks some of the early Wings stuff is really forgettable and isn't proud of it; sometimes people mention songs from that era and he thinks "uh oh, that's embarrassing, what album was that on again?" I guess you can chalk it down partly to the forests of grass he was smoking at the time, plus his struggle to find his feet again post-Beatles, but I remember the quote surprised me as you very rarely hear Paul criticise his own work.

OK. I wanted to keep this conversation so I did my best to reconstruct it from the copy/paste job I did to try to save it.
