First, would you like to take a cup of English tea with me? It would be such a pleasure. 

Second, would you like to interview me instead of me interviewing you? Because I’ve heard quite a lot about you, but you probably don’t know much about me. It would be a nice break, don’t you think?

If you were to get on a random public bus or underground train in Liverpool, London, or New York and no one seemed to recognize you, would you be sad?

He actually does take the tube/buses/etc at times (I don’t know how often) and he doesn’t always get recognised. I think he likes it. When he does want to get noticed, he apparently starts singing his own songs. True story!

I can answer that one, @Ahhh Girl! It’s because it’s a list of (most of) the songs that he has released/performed live since The Beatles split. Therefore, the missing songs from The Beatles era, he’s neither rerecorded and released or performed live.

It’s also not up to date so far as the Out There tour goes which explains why some recent additions to the list of Beatles songs he’s performed live are missing.

Paul, you’ve said that you play the Hofner violin bass onstage because, in your own words, ‘it’s the sort of thing people expect to see’. I’m not saying you don’t have a choice, but if you didn’t feel like you sort of had to because people expect to see it…. would you?

Paul, I notice from pictures of you in recording studios, when you played bass or acoustic guitar, you often sat in a chair, but of course in live shows you stand (unlike B.B. King, for example).  Would you say when you’re recording you like to sit because it helps you be more meticulous and careful about your bass lines and guitar-picking? 

This becomes a larger question: Do you find yourself playing differently while recording than when you’re live — like are you more perfectionistic in studio, but while performing live you “wing it” and experiment a little more?

Hey Paul, what would you do if, when you woke up tomorrow, the whole planet turned into the UNITED STATES of AMERICA?

I’m sure I saw/read an interview where he said did some busking and didn’t get noticed!  I reckon I would notice.  The leftie playing cuts the odds by about 90%.  Although he did say he used to learn tunes right handed to impress John. 🙂

Paul filmed a scene in ‘Give My Regards To Broadstreet’ where he imagines he is a busker. Whilst filming passers-by didnt recognise it was Paul and threw money in the hat.

A Huffington Post article has Paul talking about the filming:

In 1984 Paul McCartney filmed “Give My Regards To Broad Street,” and while the movie ended up being a flop — the plot revolved around McCartney losing his tapes and trying to get them back by midnight — it did feature one very memorable scene.

In the film, McCartney busks — donning ruffled hair and disheveled clothes — in front of the Leicester Square Station in London. Unfortunately (or fortunately?) for McCartney, no one recognized him as the former Beatle.

“Y’know, they just made me up and dropped me off,” McCartney told the New York Daily News in 1984. “I told ‘em we’d never get away with it, but they kept putting dirt on and rufflin’ up me hair — I was looking better and better — and I figured, why not.”

“So I was standin’ there plunkin’ chords, doing this silly version of the song, and no one noticed it was me,” he continued. “No one wants to look a busker in the eye of course, ‘cus then they’d get his life story. So they’d toss coins and I’d be going, ‘Yesterday , all my troubles — thank you, sir — seemed so far away.'”

Despite the obvious snubs, McCartney’s pride wasn’t wounded. In fact, he enjoyed his busking experience, as he recalled an encounter he had with a group of punks who just wanted to dance.

“This fabulous drunk Scotsman, who didn’t know me from Jesus, came up, threw his arm around me and gave me all his coins,” he told the Daily News. “I started doing these little dances and some punks came by, studs and leather, and they were dancing, too. Not because this guy’s a Beatle, but because this was something happening.”

And in case you’re wondering what he did with the money, he donated it to a local mission. However, that didn’t stop the media from saying otherwise.

“After we did it I made sure the money was donated to the Seaman’s Mission, because otherwise I knew someone would say ‘And I’ll bet he kept the money too, the old skinflint! So the next day on the telly this woman said ‘And Paul McCartney busked at the rail station last night and he kept the money too.’ I guess it’s a better story that way.”

 

There is track on ‘Press To Play ‘ called ‘Move Over Busker’.

Can’t speak for Paul, but I know I perform (standing) differently than I play for myself (occasionally standing, but usually sitting). When I play for myself, I’m more focused on the execution and ‘getting it right’– as I imagine one would be in the studio– and when I perform, I generally take a looser, more showy approach. If that makes sense.

Yeah Silly Girl, no doubt that’s the main answer.  Paul seems intent on showmanship when he’s live — putting on a good show and entertaining.  When he’s in studio he’s more keyed into getting it just right.  I recall seeing him live way back in the Wings days, and I had already been a real fan of his recordings, and I remember feeling disappointed sometimes when he didn’t do it exactly like the record but actually did it — in my view — inferior.  But now I get it — if he got it perfect on recording, why not be looser live, just for fun & experimentation?
