If she did, did you throw it in the bin before you even opened it?

She went cheap and sent him an e-card instead.

Paul, I know you tour and make new music because you absolutely love to do so. Is there any of the following sentiment wrapped up in the fervor that keeps you going strong?:

People love the Beatles, and you feel a litttle bit of the need (almost like you owe it to the fans) to keep "The Beatles" alive, at least in spirit, as long as you possibly can?

I would like to ask this to Ringo, too, so I will x-post it on his question thread.

Paul, would you make the title of your next and all subsequent albums have at least one word that is longer than three letters so we can use the search box on the Beatles Bible forum to find it?

  • What genres do you seek out more?  Does your sampling range over vast time periods -- do you seek out music from the 1940s as much as music of today?  Classical as much as rock?  Jazz and Latin?

Ha ha ha ha, that reminds me of a fake interview that Weird Al did of Paul McCartney. It comes up at 1:30 but the whole thing is worth checking out.

Paul, in a 2004 interview with Ed Bradley of 60 Minutes, Bob Dylan said that he felt he no longer had the musical inspiration he used to have.  Would you find any resonance with that statement of Dylan's in your own experience?  Do you think of yourself now as having the same degree of musical inspiration as you did during the heyday of Wings throughout the 70s or the heyday of the Beatles throughout the 60s?

Permit me one or two more questions, Sir Paul -- while you enjoy your cup of bergamot tea your assistant brewed:  If you answer "Yes" and "No" to the two questions above, respectively, would you tentatively agree that this gradual change and loss of your former high degree of musical inspiration and (dare I presume) genius, may be due to your having settled into a comfortably wealthy -- and industriously multi-tasking -- lifestyle over these past decades?  That perhaps your life is no longer sufficiently hungry and artistically random as it used to be in the golden days to be conducive to the types of moments an artist requires to be receptive to the Muse?

Yes, Sir Paul, I'll show myself out the door…blue-meanie

So, Paul, why do you think about going out into a large body of water to discover things and be set free?

This sounds like a good question to begin a therapy session on the sofa (see earlier posts in this thread…if you dare).

Have you ever done Girl live? If not, would you consider doing the song during a concert?

Paul, ever since John's assassination, your music has been looked on in a different light. Even though you were lauded in the 1970s, John's status as a martyr has caused a few people to look at you unfavorably. Do you feel in a way that people are forcing you to compete with the legacy and legend of your dead friend, and if so, what do you have to say to them?

Is there any upcoming show you had in mind for this (he asked, already knowing the answer)?

Paul – I am fascinated by the childhood stories I've read about all four of the Beatles. There are so many that have not been told. Could you please regale us with a few of yours?
