Anyone else read the news article of how Paul was performing and got swarmed by grasshoppers? He didn't seem to mind, and was pretty funny about it from what I've read.

Saw that yesterday, thought it was a really cool story. I like how he named the one that stayed on his shoulder and gave it a mention during Hey Jude :lol:

Paul's solution:

"And in the End the Love you take is equal to the Love you make"
"When I was a robber *Piano Chord* in Boston Place"
"Let's hope this turns out pretty darn good huh"
"Pete may be the best, but Ringo is the star"
Paul:"Don't be nervous John"
John:"I 'm not"

I saw that! I love him, he just didn't mind at all!  He named the one on his shoulder "Harold".  a-hard-days-night-paul-7

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!" -- Paul McCartney

He wouldn't have a problem with the grasshoppers, the grasshoppers love him and his music because he is a fan of Buddy Holly and the Crickets.

How can you have all those insects everywhere around you, all over you, and not care at all, just carry on playing? Somehow I adore that man more all the time.

So I guess he's an animal lover right down to bugs. I would've been freaking the f*** out!

I would have ran off the stage screaming, found a corner, curl into a ball and rock backwards and forwards, while chanting "they...were....everywhere" over and over again.

Me, too. Even though they're harmless, I *hate* all bugs, they freak me out!

I don't know if I would go that far, but I don't know how he can remain so calm. I would've at least been squeamish.

I would have done that if it had been centipedes. I've had nightmares about them...

I'd be screaming if they were fish or any marine life-form. It's nice to hear that Paul couldn't harm a fly or grasshopper for that matter.
