A new interview with May Pang.

http://hottytoddy.com/2014/11/.....tles-info/

I don't know a lot about her other than the basics. Also, I'm not steeped enough in Beatles history to know how much new stuff is here. Hopefully someone will point out highlights, if there are any.

Nothing new and, in my opinion, not a great interview.

May is as forthcoming as she always is in interviews. She is, as I'm sure @Joe would confirm, a great interview. If you've got the right questions, the lady has fantastic answers and insight. The interviewer in this instance is very poor in my opinion, with far too much needless flattery.

I'd concur with that. May's a friend-of-a-friend who put us in touch. I interviewed her via email, and I've never spoken to her directly or on the phone. She was very generous with her answers - quite often email responses to questions can be fairly brief and insubstantial, particularly if your interviewee has gone over the same ground many times (as May surely has).

I didn't think the HottyToddy one was a terrible interview, but some of the questions were a bit weak ("What are your favourite Beatles songs?"), and that last one ("You remain to a great extent as being one of the most mysterious and exciting women of all time") was just bizarre. Bear in mind the interviewer probably isn't a Beatles nut like we are, and may well have interviewed half a dozen people that week on a range of subjects. It's different if it's a subject you love and know a lot about, as you can really delve into the details.

Wogblog has posted an interesting interview with Maureen by French magazine 'Le Chroniqueur' from July 1988 (both an English translation and the original French text).

A couple of quotes.

Q: What was it like to sit in the studio with John, Paul and George?

A: It was like watching a couple of actors rehearsing a scene in a movie (laughs). I would sit there with a cup of coffee in my hand and watch them for a while or maybe gossip with Linda [McCartney] or Mal [Evans]. When I did watch them, I always thought to meself, so this is what he’s been doing for the last six years! (laughs) I sometimes felt like a fly on the wall, but I knew that I had to be the luckiest fly in the world. Pattie [Harrison] would sometimes be there, but she would always leave early.

 

Q: Yoko Ono was there too.

A: I always thought her strange. I mean she would always interrupt the lads when they were working or do strange things without any reason whatsoever. I was there when John brought the bed, and said something about wanting Yoko to be there. I asked Richy about this and he just shook his head in disbelief. I often wondered how they all put up with her. Even Richy would come home and tell me all these strange stories about her. He once told me about her moaning into John’s microphone while they were recording a song and how the two of them would make-out during takes. I always avoided her in the studio for those reasons. She was just too strange for me.

 Maureen also talks about Ringo's departure from the group in the middle of the White Album sessions and after being asked why Ringo left she says

 

A: From what I heard him tell Peter [Sellers] on the yacht, Paul wanted a certain drum pattern on a song and Richy was just fed up with his coaching him too much. He usually did something totally opposite of what Paul specifically told him to do, and Paul would get upset.

Full interview is at Wogblog and its very much well worth reading.

I remember this was mentioned when "Who was the hottest Beatle" thread was first made and then we were are called shallow fan girls so it died...

All of them were beautiful (I think) but there's something about Maureen, I don't know what it is but she just has an interesting looking face (gah I can't explain it paul-mccartney)
