Sir Paul McCartney On The Fireman, The Beatles And The Future

November 29, 2008

by Jason Gregory

Even at 66, no one quite wears a multi-coloured spotted silk scarf like Paul McCartney. While the former Beatles’ reputation – his unparalleled role in the biggest band in history, his huge solo success and his private life, for example – normally precede him, today, as he unveils himself from behind a restaurant curtain in South London, it’s the yellow, green and red dots which bracket his face.

He overcame losing the love of his life and survived a disastrous second marriage. So what continues to torture him? In his most revealing interview yet, Sir Paul McCartney confronts the ghosts of his past.
