Ha Ha……..

I went to the Premiere of Standing Stones at The Albert Hall. My wife-to-be, (an Australian) wanted to see Paul arrive at the stage door. I remember feeling uncomfortable and awkward hanging around there. The crowd were being kept in order by some security. And one snotty woman walks through the crowd calling, "I'm not 'people'….. I'm MTV"

When Paul's car arrived he jumps out all Macca'ish and I shout, "Let me through I'm his love child" Now I'm about as old as Paul and look it, he and the people round me just laughed……….So did my wife-to-be. They're good like that the Aussies

Paul, have you seen the new copy of Rolling Stone magazine? There's an article about pot being legalized in many U.S. states. Do you think she-who-shall-remain-nameless will ease up and allow you to go back to smoking some weed?

Haha funny story :) Did Paul hear you say that?

As a bassist, I'd love to ask what his favorite bass lines are, and if I could get some bass pointers from the best bassist who ever lived, that'd be great. But definitely some questions about bass.

Are there any of your post-1980 songs that you wish you could hear John sing? For real. Not just in your head because I imagine that you hear him singing your songs to you often.

I always thought John would have done an interesting version of "Let Me Roll It"

I've always thought Let Me Roll It was Paul doing his best John impression!

Jenny Wren has a good question for you.

What's the REAL reason you didn't join Ringo, Olivia, and Yoko to receive the Beatles award? Are you at odds with someone again?

Has anyone asked Paul if he ever did do it in the road in the past or is planning to with Nancy in the future?7

 

I'd like to know if we will ever ever see the Bruce McMouse special he was making with the first Wings group alongside the '72 European Tour.

 

And Paul, where the heck is the next instalment of the Archive Collection? Band On the Run was 2010 so in 4 years we have had 5 remastered albums in the series.  FIVE!! Get a feckin' move on before the Sun burns up or we all stop giving a living crapblue-meanieblue-meanie

I can't know for sure, but I imagine I'd just end up asking a bunch of fanboy stuff.

"What was John like?"

"What was George like?"

"What is Ringo like?"

"What are you like?"

I'd probably just go into a bunch of questions that would make me sound stupid.

Did you work with a voice coach to get the "r" sound out of the way you sing/say "saw"? The "r" was present in your younger days, but it is gone now. Perhaps just hanging around Linda did the trick?

I wonder if just not living in Liverpool would have done it.

But where does she-who-shall-not-be-named live? If she still lives in England, then its kind of useless. If she does live in the US and they legalize it more states, I can't really see her doing it. She seems like one of those people who are scared of pot.

While listening to Fab Files last week, I noticed that you didn't have the "r" sound in saw in some of those live concerts. That was early on, much earlier than I thought you dropped that quirk. However, while listening to "Kisses on the Bottom" Tuesday morning, I heard the r in Noah. No criticism. Just an observation.

Do you really not get this stylist to do your hair because of the cost? Or is there more to this story that they aren't telling?

Paul McCartney's sorry-looking hair: Not our fault, says Midtown, Manhattan salon

from the article

Help, I need some hair dye!

If you’ve noticed something strange about Sir Paul McCartney's hair style and color, you are not alone.

A respected Midtown salon wants to set the record straight after a falling-out with the aging Beatle that has led to it being blamed for the sorry state of McCartney’s locks.

Guy’s daughter, Janelle Mercadante , started coloring McCartney’s hair while her dad did the cutting, with the pair traveling to the Hamptons regularly for the job.

The salon even developed a unique formula to color McCartney’s hair. But things started to fall apart in 2012 when the singer’s assistants called demanding the formula.

“He never wanted to pay the money. There was always talk and complaints that the bill was so high,” Mercadante said.

“He would stop having us go to him to do the color because it cost more money.”

McCartney never tipped, though he did give staff tickets to his concerts.

The father and daughter weren’t keen on handing over their formula, but say they relented after repeated calls from McCartney’s minions. “He had his assistants call us who were nasty. We really shouldn’t have given him the formula. He felt he was entitled to it,” Mercadante said.

They add that whoever is now applying the color hasn’t got a clue.

“His cut is inferior and the color is a mess,”said Thomas. “We have clients coming in asking, ‘What the hell is wrong with Paul McCartney hair?’ People knew he came here, and they ask us, ‘Is that your work’?"

“His hair looks horrible,” says Mercadante. “It becomes dark initially and then lightens. Whoever is doing it for him leaves the sideburns grey.”

^^ Whether it's true or not, I hope that guy loses business for breaching client confidentiality. I wouldn't go to that stylist after reading that.

Will you sign these? Then I'd hand him my Beatles LP's and the two I have of his solo work…

I need to think of some serious questions but it's pretty hard… What would you say to one of your idols?

Ill be back when I do…

If I spoke prose you'd all find out, I don't know what I talk about.

As a bassist, I'd probably ask to play a few notes on his Hofner. That'd be incredible. 

I'd also probably ask him to teach me a Beatles bassline.
