Hey does anyone know why Paul giggles during Maxwell's Silver Hammer (while singing "writing fifty times I must not be so")? I looked it up and have seen a lot of conflicting stories.

  

I like the giggle, especially as the lyrics concern a killer whacking people to death. Paul channels Maxwell!

Considering the Anthology 3 version I think the better question is why didn't he laugh more?

Why yes that is a picture of Paul dabbing. Deal with it.

What's far more creepy than Paul's odd laugh is that there is  care-free whistling in the 'Get Back ' rehearsals.

If a plant has a face on it, could Paul eat it?

 

Or a less silly question, what are Paul's thoughts on GMOs?

I don't have time now to track this all down and reference it, but here's a starting point. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/ent.....365947.stm

Interesting about the Eastman's last name originally being Epstein (kinda' creepy) Now, I just read that Paul is going to go ahead with some concerts in Israel despite getting death threats. Wonder if his desire to perform there is a clue to his conversion to the Jewish faith?

  

In its original publication, Rolling Stone's interview with John Lennon in 1971, included John's declaration that the Eastman family name was once Epstein. John went on to call them "WASP Jews" and adding "They're the worst kind." You'll only find this in the original "magazine"; reprints have had this quote deleted. Why? John had a reputation of saying anti-Semitic things. Did he ask RS to make the deletion? Did the Eastmans put pressure on RS to retract that statement? I still have the original publication, as well at the first edition of "Lennon Remembers", so I can see where later re -publications omitted a number of John's statements.

GRANDFATHER: Why do you always use your left hand?

PAUL: Well, don't be daft, I've got to.

GRANDFATHER: And I take a left-handed view of life, I've got to.

@mccartneyalarm Sir Paul has had a close, important connection to Jewish people for many years - some good, some bad: Brian Epstein, Dick James, Sid Bernstein, Linda, John Eastman, Allen Klein, Nancy ... That's a book waiting to be written if it hasn't already.

That said, while he accompanies his wife to High Holy Day services, I think it's out of love and respect - not any desire to suddenly become religious in another faith.

@Cousin Mark That's a fascinating piece of memorabilia! Lennon said all sorts of crazy things in his life - he really didn't have much of a filter. He famously once said that Ringo wasn't even the best drummer in the Beatles (implying that Paul was). It would indeed be interesting to know the source of the retraction.

NO, HE DIDN'T! This has been debunked time and time again. No interview has ever been found which contains the "quote", not even by Mark Lewisohn. Nor did John ever think Ringo was a bad drummer, praising him a lot over the years.

The joke, and that is what was and is, was attributed to the British comedian Jasper Carrot, and a 1983 episode of his BBC TV show Carrot's Lib, for a long time. In recent years it has been discovered that it originally dates back to a 1981 episode of a BBC Radio 4 series called Radio Active.

The one place it has never been found, though, is in a John Lennon interview.
