What is McLennon was real and since it's 2013 and it wouldn't be illegal they just went for it...

"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!"

LHL, I'm sure you and I along with sky666 would do our best to keep Paul away from John and any celeb girls. He needs some real women.

How could I forget about that factor?  I'd have to become a legit stalker.  Shit would get SO real.

aaaah, i love mclennon (and somehow believe in it)... but to be honest i think they would it keep secret, even today... probably because the fangirls should think the could have a chance... or because some people aren't that tolerant. i don't know, but there comes no band to my mind with officially gay members ...

to the autotune-thingy: i heard an interview with paul where he complains, that nobody lets him use autotune. he wants to play around with it and his producers are always like: "NO! you don't need that! leave it alone!" :D  
i think finally he was allowed to use it as a soundeffect in "appreciate"...  😀 - but yeah, this might be different today...

HeyTrud, we have to get you in here too on this game of keep-away. I'm on Thanksgiving Break right now so I'll keep Paul entertained. Would you like him next when I have to go back to work on Saturday? LHL and sky999 can draw straws for who gets him next.

They would be better than One Direction, and One Direction knows it.

from the article:

Harry Styles has brushed off comparisons between One Direction and The Beatles saying they would be fools to think they're on the same level as the Liverpool legends.

Speaking to Event magazine, Styles agreed that their fan following is similar to Beatlemania but said that on a music level, they don't compare.

"We all sat and watched the film of them [The Beatles] arriving in America. And to be honest, that really was like us. Stepping off the plane, the girls, the madness. It was exactly the same as when we got there – just 50 years earlier.

"But none of us think we're in the same league as them music-wise. We'd be total fools if we did. Fame-wise it's probably even bigger, but we don't stand anywhere near them in terms of music." --end

I was going to give them a tiny tad of respect until I read the first part of the last sentence.

Sorry 1D but music-wise and fame-wise you aren't even close.

(Ok it was estimated at only 250,000 Australian fans who turned up to see The Beatles but i cant find a photo of that and whats 50,000 between friends.)

Well, I personally wouldn't recognize 1D if they were actually photographed crossing Abbey Road (as indeed they did - and recognize them I didn't!) And yeah, lots of other people wouldn't recognize them either. But the sheer fact that there are thousands of media outlets worldwide compared to the Beatles' day could be what they mean. The idea that a fan can capture a video of one of the 1D guys buying an ice cream with her iPhone, and within minutes that video can be uploaded and available to the entire world - there's no way the Beatles could ever have competed with that kind of penetration. So they're not necessarily wrong, if you look at it that way.

I remember George saying 'Blimey, he's always talking about “Yesterday”, you'd think he was Beethoven or somebody' - Paul McCartney
